Haveil Havalim #162 - Pesah Edition

My "UZBEKISTAN: Chief Rabbi faces expulsion" has been selected and included in this special Pesah Edition. I'm honoured...!

Mossa'ei Shabbath Qodesh Parshath Messor'ah 5768

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.'
