Some Shabbat Reading for you...

In case you haven't seen it, Jewish Week just published their list of 36 people under 36 years old who are the innovators in Jewish life. Check it out, very interesting to see.

I wrote this post on my other blog about learning conformity at a young age. Go check it out and leave me a comment to let me know what you think.

After yesterday's post on Lag BaOmer, check out BZ's post on why he doesn't observe the day. (I mean, he counts from 32 to 33 to 34, but he doesn't observe it as a holiday.)

Naturemoms had this really interesting article on avoiding commercialism with kids. But the header graphic was the most arresting part of it all, I thought. What an image.

Do you get this e-zine in your inbox? If not, you should. It's got really interesting discussions and articles for Jewish women. This month's issue just came out. Go check it out.

Crunchy Domestic Goddess is tackling the issue of obstetric fistula. Go read her article and be properly outraged. Then do something.

As we embark upon this holiday weekend, Leora helped to remind me that Memorial Day has a deeper meaning than eating barbecue...

Have a great Shabbat. May rest and relaxation find their way into your life.

P.S. Haikus will return next week. I was just too tired this week. I'll go back and do Bechukotai another day...

Thanks for the links. I'd better do some printing before it's too late.

Glad you found some meaning in Memorial Day. Lag B'Omer, on the other hand, is seems to be getting questioned and not just by me.

Well, folks in Israel, at least the ones without asthma, seemed to have a had a fun time last night.

Shabbat Shalom.
