Haveil Havalim After Dark: The Party Edition

As my occasional contribution to the Jewish blogging community, I have volunteered again to host Haveil Havalim, the weekly “blog carnival” of the Jewish/Israeli blogosphere. (Ech omrim “blogosphere”?) Haveil Havalim was created by Soccer Dad and currently maintained by our friend Jack.

I have realized that every time I go through the submissions, some small percentage of the time, the person submitting the article is not always the owner of the blog. It then follows that the “Joe Shmoberg of the Jew Party in the Gush Blog*” format below may be flawed if submitter Joe Shmoberg doesn’t actually write this blog, and I have no way of knowing. (Sorry, Joe-you can however go register “BoogieDownInAlonShvut.com”.)

So if at some point below you read that your blog name “belongs” to someone else, don’t be alarmed. Be excited-someone liked what you wrote enough to submit it. (Has this never come up before? Am I the only one who doesn’t actually know every single blogger? Was there some big Jew blog party going on which I wasn’t invited to, stocked with gefilte fish, Goldstar, and free WordPress themes? I’m so confused.)

*One of my favorite blogs, by the way.

Before we jump in, can I take this opportunity to plug myself? Of course I can. THERE ARE NO RULES IN HAVEIL HAVALIM! IT’S LIKE THE WILD WEST!

B’kitzur, I’m coming to the US in late October/early November to do stand-up comedy shows about life in Israel. This is a great way to make people SMILE when they think of this wonderful country. If you’re interested in a show in your community, click here for more details. (Someone once asked me if it’s clean and appropriate. I perform in JERUSALEM-what do you think?) Feel free to spread the word…and thanks.

Shana tova to all of you wherever you are. See you in 5771.

    Thank you for including the information about Birthrite for persons with Aspergers Syndrome. With 1 in 90 boys being diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder it is gratifying to see that portions of the Jewish commuity understand the improtance of inclusion.

    Shiloh Musings: First Benji's HH and Then To Sleep!
    and before I totally collapse, another scenario to answer your question is a blog, like my Shiloh Musings which has a team of bloggers who occasionally post. g'nite

    Benji, I sent in the link to my post on Aug. 29th, but I don't see it here.

    Did you ever get it?

  11. Benji Lovitt September 5, 2010 at 11:38 pm #

    First one under Politics.

  12. Lady-Light September 5, 2010 at 11:46 pm #

    DUH. Must be blind as a bat (chas ve-shalom). Looked for it under "Israel."

    Nice job. And funny, funny, funny–especially that "Jew blogger party, 5 minutes before mincha."
    Cracked me up (so that's what they do before mincha!)

    Great job, and thanks for the link!
