links to interesting posts

Here are a couple of interesting links for you...

1. Rock of Galilee has been posting again after a long hiatus. he raises an interesting debate about whether it would be better to not keep the holiday at all, or to keep it incorrectly. His example is a co-worker who likes to eat matza with cream cheese and meat.

2. Hubscubs writes an interesting drasha from Rav Nachman Kahane about the US bailout money being good money thrown after bad... He connects that to what he see as American Judaism (Chicago community being his specific example) attempting to perpetuate itself. They are already planning the next Birkat HaChama in 28 years from now - do they not plan to be in Eretz Yisrael by then? Mashiach? You know - the things we daven for 3 times a day?

3. Josh Waxman at the Parsha Blog has an interesting debate going on regarding Modern Orthodox Jews saying Birkat HaChama and whether it might be a bracha l'vatala for them....

4. Jameel has an exceptional archaeological find from the days of Joshua....
