Around the J-Blogosphere

Several items of note from around the J-Blogosphere:

1) שועלים הלכו בו. (“Shu’alim hilchu vo.” - “Foxes prowl over it.” – Eichah 5:18)

Har HaBayit after the Churban? Well, yeah, but also, Capitol Hill last Friday.

What’s the deeper significance of this modern twist on an ancient vision? I have no idea, but please leave your best creative suggestions (profound and/or humorous) in the comment section…

2) The latest Kosher Cooking Carnival is available here. Special thanks to Risa for including my cinnamon marble cake post.

3) Clearly, someone on Bnei Akiva’s executive board is an avid Our Shiputzim fan.

I mean, wouldn’t you agree that their choice of Na’aleh (literally, “we shall go up”) as the new shevet’s name is a clear indication that they read my Rosh Hashanah post, which declared that תשע”א (the Jewish year 5771) stands for תהא שנת עליה ארצה (Tehei Shnat Aliyah Artzah” - “May this be a year of aliyah to Eretz Yisrael)?


!שבוע טוב וחודש טוב


  1. 1) See, even CNN now has "Fauna Friday". You started a trend.

  2. "Foxes prowl over it." I thought this was going to have something to do with FOX News... I know too many liberals that don't like it (of course, it seems to be one of the only networks that displays some pro-Israel news).

  3. YZG - The least they could've done was credited me, no? ;-)

    Leora - Hmm. Do you think that fox was actually an undercover reporter? :-)

    Risa - Thanks for all your efforts.
