The February Jewish Book Carnival, hosted by Yael Shahar at A Damaged Mirror, is up! Go take a look at all of the links!

The links are varied, from book reviews for adult reading to book reviews of children’s books. There is a link to a free three-part discussion series, and also two links to interviews with authors.

Thank you for including my link! Thank you for hosting!

Read the poignant farewell to Antonin Scalia, written by Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Ostend: Stefan Zweig, Joseph Roth, and the Summer Before the Dark, sounds like a fascinating read.

I enjoyed reading about ‘Hummus in Hanoi‘!

Bridge, Benches, Links, Quotes


“Let every man praise the bridge that carries him over”

-Maya Angelou

I reviewed Who By Fire, by Diana Spechler, this week.

I posted two photographs taken at the local lake.
Leora posted some beautiful photographs of magnolia blossoms and cherry blossoms.

Hannah has a delicious sounding recipe for fish stew with couscous.

Legal Victory for Women in Israel

Visit Zivah to see her thoughts on this week’s parashah.

Perfection itself is imperfection.
-Vladimir Horowitz

My imperfections and failures are as much a blessing from God as my successes and my talents and I lay them both at his feet.
-Mahatma Gandhi

A good garden may have some weeds.
-Thomas Fuller

You just have to learn not to care about the dust mites under the beds.
-Margaret Mead

Shabbat Shalom!
