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:
Hochma and Musar
Reb Barry's Blog
A Soldier's Mother
West Bank Mama
My Urban Kvetch
Sense of Events
About Chayim Tzvi Ariel
Eye of the Storm
Ki Yachol Nuchal
Sabra at Heart
Israel and the Sin of Expulsion
A Mahjer Makes Aliyah
Hebrew Online Blog
What War Zone
My Right Word
Elms in the Yard
and probably many others that I missed.
Now for the submissions ...
