Guest Posts: Islamic Breastfeeding, Volunteering and Rosh Hashanah

Fading Art: Public Breastfeeding in the Middle EastI have three posts up at other sites that you may find interesting. If you enjoy them, show the hosts some love by leaving a comment or sharing the link.

  1. On Green Prophet, I reviewed the book A Fading Art: Understanding Breastfeeding in the Middle East. It was interesting to read how Islamic law and culture affects breastfeeding. The Koran requires breastfeeding for two years, yet Islamic countries tend to have low rates.
  2. As part of JobMob’s blogging contest, I wrote  on how to be a great volunteer while looking for your next job. Please share with your favorite volunteer—the tips are helpful even if you’re not currently job-hunting. The winner is the post with the most page views during the week following publication.
  3. Last but not least, an article I wrote about Rosh Hashanah cooking is being featured on the Eater’s Digest blog at Food.Com, formerly Recipezaar.

In other news, I’ve switched A Mother in Israel over to a new theme (design). Let me know if you find it user-friendly.

Happy reading!
