My Three Favorite Jewish Blogs

Here’s what I read in order of frequency checked:

* It’s not so much the conventional news stories it places at the top of the site. It is its listings of updated blogs midway down the front page on the right that I look for. The three Jewish Journal blogs I read the most are the God blog, Morethodoxy and Tattletales.

* FrumSatire. Fresh, funny. Filled with insights. Heshy Fried is a brave young man who keeps bringing it every week.

* TorahMusings. A sober look at Jewish life from an Orthodox perspective:
