Plenty to Read in This Jewish Blog Stew of Havel Havelim and Kosher Cooking Carnival

cross-posted on Shiloh Musings

I'm doing it again. As I've found myself as a very busy "default hostess" for both Havel Havelim and the  Kosher Cooking Carnival, since both were due to be posted last last week, I'm combining them into one stew, or maybe we'll call this one a cholent.  This time, I'm going to mix up the posts completely. There will be food and politics all stewed together in one big pot.

Havel Havelim is a weekly Jewish and Israeli blog carnival, which includes all sorts of posts about Judaism and Israel.  The Kosher Cooking Carnival is a monthly blog carnival, appearing on or around Rosh Chodesh, the beginning of the Jewish Month.  It includes posts about all aspects of kosher food and kosher cooking.

Just to remind you, it's not all that difficult to host a blog carnival. Try it.  Choose one or both.  If you'd like, then please email me at shilohmuse at gmail dot com.  You're invited to join our facebook pages Havel Havelim and Kosher Cooking Carnival. It's best to send in your links via blog carnival, KCC, HH.  Blog Carnival send the hosts not only links to posts that have been submitted but also a suggested "mock-up" sample of what could be the carnival.  They send it in two versions, embedded text and html.  You can paste an edit what they send.  In addition I suggest adding posts and pictures you've seen which fit the criteria of the carnival.  This past week was Chanukah as you can see from the posts.

Real Jerusalem Streets

I hope this has made you sufficiently hungry to dig into the posts and of course also share this blog carnival and all the posts in it. Just that you know, that inclusion in this HH/KCC doesn't mean that I agree with the posts.

Hi, I see you're looking for someone to host your blog carnival. How does that work? I have a food blog (I eat kosher only) here: What does it mean to host a blog carnival? I've never participated in a blog carnival before but I've had some experience editing newsletters (if that's relevant).

Sarah Rivka, we'd love for you to join our Kosher Cooking Carnival. Are you on facebook?
Check out the past issues of KCC, ok. Hosting is good for you and your blog.
