Jewish Bloggers Concentrate of Kidnapped Boys, The Latest Havel Havelim

Esser Agaroth is host of this latest Havel Havelim, the long-running round-up Jewish blog posts from all over the world. A large proportion of the blog posts discuss various aspects of the kidnapping of the three Jewish teenagers from the Gush Etzion bus stop. We blog about what has been on our minds and there is no doubt that the terribly kidnapping is central to what we've been thinking about for a week and a half already. Please read, comment and share the posts and the Havel Havelim. We all appreciate feedback, even if you don't agree with everything we write.

Blogging enables us all to be journalists and run our own papers and magazines online. At least that is what blogging is for me. When my blogs appear on various other internet news sites it's like syndication, without my getting any financial compensation. But since I blog in order to get my personal message out to the world, I've made a sort of peace with the idea that I'm not going to earn a living from writing, although I wish I could.

Havel Havelim is a weekly blog carnival and includes blog posts on Jewish interests, and most of those do center on Israel. Also the vast majority, at least of late, of the bloggers do live in Israel. We keep in touch and organize who's hosting and when on our facebook page. You're invited to join us in our community via fb to send in your links, host and at least share the weekly editions of Havel Havelim. If you have any questions, please email me with "HH Questions" as subject, shilohmuse at gmail dot com.

There are a few other Jewish blog carnivals including Jewish Book Reviews, JPIX and my Kosher Cooking Carnival. It appears every Rosh Chodesh, the beginning of the Jewish Month. The next host is  Challah Maidel and you can send her your links by/before this Shabbat; click our Facebook page for more information.

These Jewish blog carnivals are certainly reasons to be glad that G-d gave us the intelligence to invent the internet. Please read, comment, participate and share, thanks.
