Several items of interest:
1) G6 has a beautiful post about her community’s custom of bringing a wimpel to shul. Mazal tov to her and her family!
3) Ilana-Davita visited Dieuleufit – the French village known as the “Oasis of Peace”, because many Jews found refuge there during the Holocaust.
5) The V’Nahafoch’hu Kosher Cooking Carnival is available here. (Hint: Be prepared to stand on your head while reading it…) Special thanks to Miriyummy for including the Resident Ulpanistit’s chocolate swirl blondies.
