Haveil Havalim #142 is up!

SoccerDad has posted HH #142 (is that the longest running carnival anywhere?!), and you should check it out. In case you don't know...
Haveil Havalim is the carnival of Jewish blogs -- a weekly collection of Jewish & Israeli blog highlights, tidbits and points of interest collected from blogs all around the world. It’s hosted by different bloggers each week and coordinated by Soccer Dad. The term “Haveil Havalim”, which means "Vanity of Vanities", is from Kohelet, Ecclesiastes, which was written by King Solomon. Solomon built the Holy Temple in Jerusalem and later on got all bogged down in materialism and other “excesses” and realized that it was nothing but “hevel”, or in English, “vanities.”

  1. Thanks.
    I had to rake leaves so I wasn't able to get to it sooner.
    I'm sure that Carnival of the Vanities is longer running. And there might be one or two more.
    But thanks for mentioning that.
