Send a Friend to Israel

JoeSettler here.

I just got an email from WebAds and Nefesh B'Nefesh asking me to nominate a fellow blogger for a free round-trip ticket to Israel to go to the Jewish blogger convention.

You can see more here on the convention website.

My first thought was, who could I possibly convince to nominate me. But then I realized that that list couldn't possibly be very long, so I'm giving up on that idea.

Instead I decided to think about who deserves to be on the flight.

Jameel perhaps, but he was on it last year. I think it would be amusing to meet Dov Bear (and then smack him around a bit), but I doubt he'd emerge from his cave.

Then it hit me. SoccerDad.

It's not that I read his blog that often, but the guy has been at the forefront of pushing Jewish blogging - and has mentioned my blog in his Jewish blog carnivals more than once. If any Jewish blogger deserves a free trip to Israel to the blogger convention, I'd have to give him my vote.

(I'm still going to nominate a few other bloggers though).

I'm curious who Jameel will choose (pick me, pick me).

Wherever I am, my blog turns towards Eretz Yisrael טובה הארץ מאד מאד

Why did you automatically think "HIM", don't women blog too!

I'm going to also nominate CoffeeandChemo.

Just read that Jameel and wife had a baby!
MAZAL TOV! So, so, happy to hear about another little citizen of Muqata.

PS thanks JS

Soccerdad - what a great idea!

My wife already nominated him. But why do you need a flight? Aren't you here?

YMedad said...

Neshama - I nominated Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs and I think I'll also do Jewess

Where's the BEEF???

the 50 shekel entrance fee isn't a fortune, but it's insulting that they switched the menu to dairy.

Last year's convention highlight was the outstanding meat buffet.

What a shondah!
