As we are just into 2010, I thought it would be fun to search to Jewish/Israel blogging world for people to watch in 2010. Some of these have been around for a long time, and some are new. Either way, they are all worth giving a read, or re-read, in 2010. In no particular order:
The Elder – The Elder of Ziyon
manages to write so many great, investigative posts that I am often looking to him for important news on the PalArab (his term for Palestinian Arab) side of things. His PalArab self death count is a great reminder that we are not the bad guys.
David Bogner – Treppenwitz
Treppenwitz reminds us that Israel is a fun place with some lighter posts and some posts of more depth.
Benji Lovitt – What War Zone?
If you have ever wondered what it would be like to move to Israel, you don’t need much more than Benji’s candid stories of life in the land of humus and shwarma. Benji, a comedian by night, is an entertaining blogger with a lot to say about moving to Israel.
Ya’akov Ben-Yehuda – Esser Agaroth
Ya’akov is another oleh blogging his stories and experiences in Israel. His mix of politics and religion often give a version of Israeli life that you will not see in the news. He gives stories from the perspective of someone living in Judea/Samaria, though his recent move to Jerusalem has given us yet another view of a religious Jewish life in Israel.
Joel/Anthony/Eric – The Israel Situation
Yes, I know I put myself on my own list. Joel, Anthony, and I have big plans for 2010, including a blog face lift and post series to keep you informed and excited. Joel’s recent addition of a weekly NGO/Non-Profit watch has brought a valuable new genre to the site, and we are looking to add new Israel politics, Science/Technology, and Sports/Entertainment bloggers to the site (contact us if you are interested or know someone who might be).
