Blog Roundup: Too Busy To Blog?


by Rebecca Honig Friedman

It’s been a very long while since we had a decent blog roundup here on Jewess. So here we go. First up, it’s the latest Week-In-Review from TJC Newsdesk, featuring a hot music video from YLove, and much more. Scroll down for updates on a whole bunch more blogs.

Danya Ruttenberg is busy with numerous literary projects and is excited by a nice Feministing review for her latest book, Surprised by God.

Jewschool’s got buzz about a Multi-denominational Conference on Women’s Prayer
Maya Escobar shares the video and text of a letter from American rabbis to President Obama, asking him to make resolving the Mideast conflict a top priority.
Mother in Israel has an update on wounded Israeli soldiers and money-saving tips for breast-feeding moms.

  1. Thanks for the link. The more the survey can be spread around the greater the impact can be.

  2. Thanks for the updated link list. So many links on other sites are terribly out of date [last post from 2006, etc] that I hate to waste time trying to find the good ones. Of course, Renegade Rebbitzin has only posted a couple times in the previous year.

  3. Thanks so much for linking to me - I was just mentioning how much I like this blog to another good female Jewish blogger, Cynthia Samuels at Don’t Gel Yet -
