New Kids On The Block

Everyone please visit the link above and welcome two of Israel's best-known writers to the JBlogosphere. They've been here for several months and you may have read them already, but if you haven't yet met Haim Watzman (author of Company C and A Crack In The Earth, both of which I am proud to own) and Gershom Gorenberg (whose columns I've read, but not--yet--his best-selling The Accidental Empire)*, go over and introduce yourself.

Ah, g'wan! They're liberals. Go pick a fight (grin). But remember what Trep said: "Be nice." We're all Israelis and Jews together in this little slice of land, so disagree politely, if you disagree, or simply go there to take a break from my rants.

Have fun!

*Bakadiary disclosure: I am best friend's with Gershon's sister's friend, and my husband has worked for her law office, so while I have never personally met Gershon, he's one of my landzmen from the Old County.

Thanks for the plug! Gershom and I look forward to upsetting Baka Diary's readers--politely. But we're not just about politics--we write a lot about books, film, poetry, and culture as well.

My pleasure. Upset us, please. Blogging can get just a bit too incestuous if we only talk to the people who agree with us All The Time, as gratifying as such agreement can be. One of the things I love about Jerusalem is its culture, and I'm happy to link to your blog in anticipation of your plugs and pans of what is currently available out there.

B'hatzlachah!
