Jameel's busy...very busy. So I'm writing this on his behalf.
We're expanding and we would appreciate your support. We'd like to bring you more about day to day life in Israel! News! Opinion! What Jameel's making for Shabbos! (Fine, You know his wife does the cooking, he just grills chicken/shnitzel from time to time so he can blog while trying to be helpful)
Corporate sponsorship welcome! Want to drive some new traffic to your blog? Donate; we'll give you a shout out ad. Donations of any size accepted!
What your donations will be going to:
Wireless blogging equipment* to allow Jameel and crew to blog more from the field. No more second stringers taking over when Jameel is on vacation, he'll still be on the job. (To the Mrs. @ the Muqata: er, just kidding!) Blog hosting. More features, more fun, funkier graphics! More professional stringers: help Jameel get out of debt and finally pay his overworked staff! Or at least buy them beer.
All monies will be ma'asered with proceeds going to Gush Katif refugees, purchasing emergency medical equipment for MDA/Hatzolah in Israel, and supporting counter-terrorism teams in Yehuda and Shomron.
*Blackberry or other internet-enable mobile device.
BE A PART OF GREATNESS! (note from Jameel -- this line isn't from me, but from Litvishe)
Thanks to KH a Seraphic Secrets reader for her donation.

Wherever I am, my blog turns towards Eretz Yisrael
