Thanksgiving Ritual

Earlier this week, I posted my Thanksgiving Family Ritual, best for tables with young children present.
And over here, I posted an Ecumenical Version.

Today I present a more "grown-up" edition. Offering songs and readings from our nation's founding documents, I think it's a nice simple way to bring religious ritual to the table, so to speak.

Thanksgiving Seder

I'd love to hear your feedback!
Happy Thanksgiving!

The Jewish Blogosphere

If you're interested in seeing what's the what in the Jewish Blogosphere (or J-Blogosphere, as it's known), click over to this week's Haveil Havalim, the Jewish Blog Carnival. It's a wrap-up of the "best of" posts (self-submitted, mostly) in the Jewish blogging world this week.

A very interesting look at what Jews are talking about all over the world!
