Haveil havalim #138

Welcome to the 138th edition of Haveil Havalim the Jewish/Israel blogging carnival.

Next week's hostess is Mother in Israel. To submit posts please use the Blog Carnival submission form. Also, this week I received 30 last minute submissions. Please, out of consideration for the host or hostess - especially if you have multiple submissions - don't wait for a last minute avalanche. Also, please note, I have set a deadline of Friday instead of Saturday night.

The Rabin Assassination


One thing that a blogger can do is follow a topic and become an expert on said topic. Anti-racist blog followed Daniel Pipes' attempt to speak at Wayne State University. Daniel Pipes Weblog appreciated the work and provided an index My Disrupted Talk at Wayne State University.

The lawsuit against Orthomom has been tossed. I can't claim to be a legal expert, but I don't find this result surprising. Similar cases have been decided in favor of the defendant. Though I can't imagine that it's any fun to be on the receiving end of any legal action.
