וְאֵלֶּה תּוֹלְדֹת Vi'eli Toldot, What a Week to Host a Double Blog Carnival...

Cross-posted on Shiloh Musings

וְאֵלֶּה תּוֹלְדֹת Vi'eli Toldot, And these are the generations...

And this is what happened this week, death, terror attack, deaths, shiva calls... This has been a very hard week for the Jewish People.

There will be blog posts about it all in this combined Parshat Toldot Havel Havelim and Rosh Chodesh Kislev Kosher Cooking Carnival.

I'd like to remind you to please remember to send in more links, best with a sentence describing the post. And also please volunteer to host. And most important is to share the carnivals, read, comment and share the included posts, too, thanks.

Remember, you don't have to be blogger to read and comment and share blog posts! Enjoy and Shavua Tov to all!
The Kosher Cooking Carnival is a monthly blog carnival about kosher food, kosher cooking, anything to do with kosher food. I started it many years ago when a post of mine was rejected by a food/recipe carnival that wanted to restrict that edition to ham. Like many if not all of the ancient enemies of the Jewish People, that blog carnival no longer exists, but we're still cooking!
Nowadays KCC is organized on our facebook page. You can sign up to host or find out who's hosting there. Or just write to me shilohmuse at gmail dot com. The editions generally appear around Rosh Chodesh, which is the first day of the Jewish Month. The Kosher Cooking Carnival is more than just a recipe carnival. It includes posts about all aspects of kashrut, what makes food kosher, custom, recipes and also cookbook and restaurant reviews, kosher of course.
Please check out the posts, read, comment and of course share them and this blog round-up.
Havel Havelim is the weekly international Jewish blog carnival that has been appearing well over a decade. It was begun by Soccer Dad who no longer blogs. He coordinated it for quite a while. Now we use our facebook page to coordinate and publicize it. That's where we sign up to host an edition (Hint! Hint!) and see the latest news. Join the page and become part of the community. Next week's host is Yocheved of It's MY Crisis! And I'll Cry If I Need To, please send her your link with blurb to giveretgolani at gmail dot com, thanks, before Shabbat.
I'm starting with the sad stuff. When the week starts with the death of a friend, Charley Levine, you think it can't get worse, and then the next day, the day I went to Jerusalem to pay two shiva calls, one to the family of an older woman and the other to Charley's widow and children was the day of the Har Nof Massacre. May G-d give comfort to the families and refuah shleimah, complete and speedy recovery to the injured.
