I am pleased (if a little surprised) to announce that I will be representing Jewcy at the Nefesh B’Nefesh sponsored Second International Jewish Bloggers Convention as a panelist.

It’s been many years since I left Israel in a huff, and began a long and painful ascent out of the Dark Light and an eventual return to secularism.  Finally revisiting Israel from a different perspective after all these years will be wonderful.Though I am not making Aliyah (surprise!), I will be covering someone who is. I asked to cover a secular person, as I find a non-Orthodox person’s decision to move to Israel much more interesting than that of an Orthodox person. 

I want to thank Steve of WebAds, who helped facilitate this trip for me with NBN, and for putting me on a panel at the Convention. Thanks as well to Lilit and all of Jewcy for this privilege as well. 

I am going to have fun there, and hope you will join me. Jonathan Rosenblum of the ultra-Orthodox apologetic site Cross Currents will be there with me as well, and hopefully, despite our generally similar P.O.V.’s,we will be able to find one or two points of subtle difference on, “Social Media and the Future of the Jewish Community.”

So if you want to see me speak, then register now for the convention at: www.JBloggers.org
