60 bloggers for Israel
60 bloggers, 60 days, 60 different spins on Israel.
If you haven’t already done so, check out the new site 60 bloggers for Israel, a blog devoted to thoughts on Israel that features a different post each day leading up to Yom Ha’atzmaut.
The project, dreamed up by Craig Taubman as part of the Let My People Sing festivities, is a collaboration with Rabbi Yonah Bookstein of Jewlicious.com. Together, they enlisted 60 bloggers from near and far including, “Jewtube,” “My Urban Kvetch” and “Yo, Yenta!” to wax poetic about the promised land.
Thus far, the blog reads like an epic love poem to Israel, with many of the contributors sharing their memories, feelings and political impressions of the holy land.
The Calendar Girls posted their prose yesterday in “Oh Israel, how do I love thee?”
