Kveller Hits of the Week: August 6 – 10

This week’s most popular posts from Raising Kvell.

– Aly Raisman: Our Golden Jewish Gymnast. Aly Raisman, Aly Raisman, Aly Raisman. Have we mentioned Aly Raisman? The Jewish gymnast took home a few gold medals at the London Olympics, and then wowed us all with her support for the victims of the Munich Olympics.

– I Didn’t Fall in Love With My Baby Right Away. You know how mothers say the instant their baby was born, it was undying love at first sight? This mom felt awe, and relief, and joy, but love? Not quite yet.

– Yahrzeit for a Dog. Even if you’re not a dog-lover (like the author of this piece) it’s hard not to admit that this dog changed the course of an entire family.

– What Do You Think About Natalie Portman’s Wedding Dress? Natalie Portman married baby daddy Benjamin Millepied this past weekend, and even wore a nice modest dress to her traditional  Jewish ceremony.
