The Jewish and Israel Photo Carnival is UP:
JPix 13

Welcome to JPix 13

Yes its that time of the fortnight again.

I really can't believe how quickly the time has gone, it seems theres not enough hours in the day. Despite the demands placed on our time, JBloggers are a funny bunch, it seems some of us consider our blogs to be such an essential part of us that if we go on holidays we suffer blog withdrawal.

The good thing about being a JPixer is you can go on that holiday guilt free, knowing you'll be able to bring back lots of photos for JPix! (and possibly yourself??)

Hosting a JPix is always rewarding, theres that sense of oh no theres only 2 days to go and I haven't even started it, but in the end we all manage to get it done some how. By the way regulars might notice this JPix is a day late, well tar and feather Mr Bagel!

If you'd like to have a go at hosting JPix then don't be shy.

Akiva's Wife at Mystical paths has written a post on the tremendous mitzvah of baking Challah, she includes some really beautiful loaves of Challah, The Segulah of Challah .

I can fully understand the attraction of having fresh home baked Challah as I am fortunate enough to have fresh home baked Challah every Shabbos, thanks to a wonderful Mrs Bagel.

Malki playing the Flute

David from Temunot has posted Malki's Song a timely remembrance of Malki Roth.

Malki's Song

Each of us has a share in the World to Come
And that is already a reason to be happy
We each have a spark and a start
And this is reason enough to be happy

You live, breath, move
That’s a good start

Each of us have a way of arriving
We all have a way back too
We each have a hope and a future
And a place in the World to Come

You live, breath, move
That’s a good start

Each of us have so many reasons
So you better start dancing now
We each already have a reason to laugh
So let’s all shout together-

You live, breath, move
That’s a good start

Please visit David's blog Temunot to understand the significance.
More about Malki and the wonderful work her parents do here: Keren Malki

Yid with Lid has been having a dabble altering images, and as always you can't help but chuckle with Yid's humor. Check out CAIR: Silencing Debate For Dummies

Mr Bagel has a similar sense of humor and you'll often find many of the Photos and Pictures Mr Bagel has featured on his blog have been substantially changed in some way. A good example is my article on the Iranian conspiracy theory that Harry Potter is really a Jewish plot thats has csot the 'Zionist' billions. Check my post out here:Proof! It's True!
Zionist Plot uncovered in Harry Potters latest Book!

Amazing job as always! I was telling Baleboosteh, whenever I see the talent here it makes me want to take a class.

Evan said...

Hi Bagel,

Sorry for the extended number of posts there. Thanks for putting my stuff up though, and it's great to see what the other bloggers are up to.

BTW, I posted all of the photos together in one post at:

so that there's no need to link to each section individually.

Great Job!

I'm amazed at the time and effort you put into this...I love finding new blogs through Jpix and seeing the amazing work everyone else does. It makes me feel shabby lol. Thanks so much for the mention. Hope you guys are all doing alright.
