Haveil Havalim #179

Hey oh. I just got back from a frielich wedding, and it's pretty late. But I didn't get many submissions this week. I was thinking it might be because of my infamous last stint as HH chair, but it turns out to be because blogcarnival was down a lot of the week.

This week's main event was the Jewish Blogger Conference in Jerusalem. Undoubtedly everyone on this list has already read numerous posts about the conference, but here is a rundown:

Thank you so much for making the effort to host this week. I am SO BUMMED that I left Israel just two days (I think?) before the conference! ARGH. Next time, I'll have to see what I can do about that.

Meanwhile, hope everyone had a great, safe time and I can't wait to read about it.

Great job. Now I can check out more reports and other posts.

PS Esser Agoroth is a "he."

Jack, next time this happens, inform people what to do?

At least put up Baila's great post with pics: how Baila met the blogger stars

Thank you again.
