While it seems that official blog carnivals have bloggers submit their own posts, lack of time and publicity dictate that I compile a “homemade” carnival of this week’s Jewish news, which is a lot like the homemade bird costume I sewed my son last week: It won’t win any awards, but like those blue wings made from a pair of outgrown shiny warm-up pants, it’ll provide hours of entertainment:
The Yada Blog directs us to an IM interview with Matisyahu, in which he expressing his wish to discuss Midrash with Madonna, but doesn’t mention his recent status as pariah for dumping his long-time managers at non-profit JDub Records for the guy who discovered Nirvana.
Finally, this week’s Torah portion, a double whammy about the role of Shabbat and the building of the tabernacle that housed the tablets, helps us understand that every single one of us, even little ol’ you, matters.
That ought to keep you swinging from the ceiling for awhile. Shabbat Shalom, friends.
