Ezzie's Blog Roundup, 5/25/2006: Yom Yerushalayim

Today is my brother-in-law's 29th birthday, so although he doesn't read my blog (ever), happy birthday to him!

I'm going to put up a seperate post from when I was in Yerushalayim for Yom Yerushalayim of only pictures. Or maybe I'll put them here. Who knows...

Okay, straight to the roundup (Daled Amos has even more great links):
Elie's Expositions has finished the series of posts about his son, Aaron, who passed away just over a year ago. He has links up on the side if you want to donate to Aaron's memorial fund.
Yom Yerushalayim:
Ze'ev has the famous recording, along with a transcript, of the Israeli forces recapturing Jerusalem in 1967. It is so incredibly powerful and moving, and a must-listen whether you understand Hebrew or not.

Treppenwitz has the transcript as well, along with some comments.

My Obiter Dicta will be teaching his students about Jerusalem.
The Bear hits a nice Jewish number: 600,000.

OM points out a very good article about blogging by a rabbi from JSafe.

Sarah, Rafi, and Shoshana all get blog makeovers. Very nice, all.
Nephtuli wonders if halacha understands women, now that he's getting married.

I'm Haaretz PhD introduces her husband.
Finally, Jack links to a link from BaconEatingAtheistJew about anti-Semitism. This is truly a great presentation, so check it out.
