Haveil Havalim -- Check it Out!

The glorificous Frume Sarah is hosting this week's Haveil Havalim, and it is now up and live on her blog. What is HH? It's a carnival of Jewish blogs, that's what it is. There is some extra info about this snazzy little blog carnival up below and here.
Founded by Soccer Dad, Haveil Havalim is a carnival of Jewish blogs — a weekly collection of Jewish & Israeli blog highlights, tidbits and points of interest collected from blogs all around the world. It’s hosted by different bloggers each week and coordinated by Jack. The term ‘Haveil Havalim,’ which means “Vanity of Vanities,” is from Qoheleth, (Ecclesiastes) which was written by King Solomon. King Solomon built the Holy Temple in Jerusalem and later on got all bogged down in materialism and other ‘excesses’ and realized that it was nothing but ‘hevel,’ or in English, ‘vanity.’
