No, not the festival meaning “farewell to the flesh” [thinking ya didn’t know that’s what it meant…]. A blog carnival.

A blog carnival is a virtual event tbat is dedicated to a particular topic with permalinks to other blog articles on that topic. [See here for a more thorough explanation…]

Anyway, There is a Jewish blog carnival called Haveil Havalim. 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.’

Haveil Havalim #162 – Pesach Edition is up over at Esser Agaroth and it will really help get you in the mood for Passover 🙂

And you’ll also get a sense of some amazing Jewish bloggers out there.
