Haveil Havalim! The Jewish Blog Carnival

Wow - I am so excited to share a link to this week's Haveil Havalim - the Jewish Blog Carnival. This week's edition can be found at Ima on (and off) the Bima. Some general information about the "carnival:"

Founded by Soccer Dad, Haveil Havalim is a 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 Jack. The term 'Haveil Havalim,' which means "Vanity of Vanities," is from Qoheleth, (Ecclesiastes) which was written by King Solomon. King 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, 'vanity.'

Phyllis, at Ima...Bima, shares links for all sorts of fun Jewish sites: Jewish Life and Times, In and On Israel, and Miscellaneous Interesting posts (where she linked back to ME!). Be sure to give her a visit and check out some of our fabulous fellow bloggers. Never mind the fact that she is ALWAYS a great read :)
