Haveil Havalim - The Jewish Blog Carnival
Havel Havelim is the longest running International Jewish blog carnival.
Carnival you ask?
Well not in the most typical sense but it essentially is a roundup of bloggers within the international Jewish community, musing on a variety of subjects including Jewish life, Israel and the diaspora. Havel Havelim is a great platform not only for bloggers looking for recognition but you readers seeking enjoyable resources for stories, articles, personal tales, songs and even poems!
If you are a reader, we hope you will find your new favorite blogger! For you bloggers out there, we hope that Israel Forever will become a new way for your to spread your passion of the written word!
Founded by Soccer Dad, Haveil Havalim is hosted by different bloggers, or in this case organizations, each week and is jointly coordinated through a Facebook Group run by Jack. The term 'Haveil Havalim,' or ‘Vanity of Vanities’ is from Kohelet, (Ecclesiastes), written by the great and late King Solomon who was known for his materialism and excesses which arguably, the pinnacle of which was the Holy Temple in Jerusalem.
If you want to participate or, better yet, host, visit the Facebook group, join, and stay up to date on where to send your weekly entries. If you have a Jewish/Judaism/Israel-related post from the past week that you love and think is worth sharing, feel free to post it in the comments below.
We are extremely pleased to be able to promote the writing of independent bloggers - don't forget to post comments below and share with friends, family and your community!
