Some blogger news:
1) Congratulations to Noa over at Jerusalem Revealed, on her acceptance to the Hadassah/Hebrew University nursing school. This is a big career switch for her -- always a brave thing to do. I'm so impressed that she is following her dream. Go, Noa! And, her parents are making aliyah tomorrow. Double mazal tov!
2) A former colleague of mine has started a new blog in which she plans to reflect on the death of her adult daughter, as well as on where she is in the mourning process currently, five years later. Welcome to the blogging world, and may you find comfort among the mourners of Zion.
3) Yasher Koach to "Adam Ragil," who successfully persuaded the Rabbi of his shteibel to allow the congregation to sponsor an arts and crafts event for the girls, despite opposition from some members (see his entry for August 6). I hope the girls have a wonderful time.
