Jewish Homeschool Blog Carnival

Why can’t we have our own carnival??? Let’s do it! A regular, monthly Jewish homeschool blog carnival… why not???

Here are links to all current and past Jewish Homeschool Blog Carnivals so you can see what we’re all about:

What is this blog carnival for? UPDATED November 8!

A blog carnival lists blog posts of interest to like-minded folks. Not just a list of blogs, it singles out those posts which are remarkable, special, interesting. So I want to hear from you - your best posts ever; your best RECENT posts; the stuff you're most proud of:

  • Did you have one amazing perfect day with your homeschooler?
  • Or maybe you had a terrible, frustrating day - and want to vent?
  • Did you find a new way to teach a Jewish (or secular) concept?
  • Did you have a great back-to-homeschool picnic with other kids in your area?
  • Are you a seasoned homeschooler posting tips or advice for others?
  • Do you have printables that you want to share with other homeschoolers? (pretty please...)

If you have blogged about any of the above - or something even more wonderful than I could possibly dream, please submit it here or leave a note in the comments section, below.

I have opened up the concept a little to include all Jewish learning-at-home type blogs and related blog posts. Every child is homeschooled, at least a little, right??? If you have a blog OR if you read a Jewish kids-n-learning blog which inspires you, please submit it here - I would love to include it in my roundup.

Ancient Auction Secret: If Chinese auctions are racist, why do Jews love them so much?

Ah, Jews, Jews, Jews, Jews.  You sure do love your Chinese auctions, don’t you? It seems that even in an era of political correctness, within certain circles, this term just will not die . And frankly, I’m mortified. I’m not Chinese, but I have family who is Chinese.  Some are Korean, as well.  I guess this makes us more ethnically diverse than many Jews, but I suspect most Jewish families are moving in this direction.  Still.  Even if we don’t know a single Chinese person, we should still stop calling it that. First of all… is it actually racist to call it a Chinese auction? I figured I’d let Chinese people decide.  But when I turned to Google to find out how Chinese people feel about Chinese auctions, what I found was mostly… nothing.  Silence.  I did find some debate (presumably among non-Chinese people) over whether it was too far in the direction of political correctness to refer to these as a “silent auction” or (as in some parts of the States) a “tricky tray.”  (Ok
