I thought this photo of our three generations of Jewish soldiers is an appropriate postscript to David's post about his father last week. This was taken at the Western Wall after a swearing in ceremony of that soldier there in the middle. He saw battle the following year in Lebanon.

Ima on (and off) the Bima has posted the Haveil Havalim this week with the title: #243 NaBloPoMo Edition. I may sound like something from column C on the menu of a Chinese restaurant or a summer camp advertised in the back pages of the New York Times Magazine back in the days when I held it in my hands and read it. But no, this is a old INternet tradition handed down from blogger to blogger through the generations and means National Blog Posting Month which according to that tradition is celebrated in November. Devout and devoted bloggers post daily and ImaBima is joined in this ritual by such luminaries as FrumeSarah, MomInIsrael, IlanaDavita, Leora, Baila and probably quite a few others I'm forgetting. I am suggesting that HH be renamed IsJeBlo-Off ( for Israeli and Jewish Blog Offerings) and you will find this weeks line up here.
