Bloggers Unite

Bloggers Unite! From left to right: Laura from The J-Life, Tomer from Oy Bay!, Laya and Dave from Jewlicious.com, and myself.
Some of you may have heard that Jewlicious.com's birthright israel trip is in full effect right now (see day 1 and day 2). The trip is being staffed by Jewlicious blog-elders Dave (ck) and Laya; I spoke to a few of the participants, and it sounds like they're having an amazing time.

And it just so happens that premier Bay Area blogmeister Oyster from Oy Bay! is on the trip as well. Last night they were in Jerusalem, so Oyster called me up and I had the opportunity to have a few l'chaims in downtown J-town with the whole blog crew, including another Bay Area blogger, Laura from The J-Life and Michael from Jewlicious as well. It was like one big bloggy family (how many more times should I try to fit the word "blog" into one of these sentences?).

There will undoubtedly be continued updates on all of their blogs, so if you want to keep abreast, be sure to check them out (and for all you Bay Area residents, make sure you bookmark Oy Bay!, since it is, after all, the premier Bay Area Jewish blog).

Enjoy the rest of your trip, everyone!

Also, speaking of Jewlicious, this would probably be a good opportunity to give a small plug for Jewlicious at the Beach 3.0, taking place March 9-11 in Long Beach, CA. As any of the UCSC students who attended last year will readily tell you, last years gathering was one of the best weekends of the year. In fact, I think someone might have said it was the best weekend of their life, but don't quote me. What was it all about? Spirituality, excellent music, excellent food, Jewish culture, and a bunch of other stuff. Pretty much just let your wildest Jewish weekend gathering dreams come true. Yeah, Matisyahu was there. So check it out and sign up.
