Gut Shabbos everyone! Here are this week's bookmarkable links:
I am loading all of the PowerPoint presentations into Slideshare. So far I've only received 2 (!) but any that I receive (please send to firstname.lastname@example.org) will be accessible in a single location here: http://www.slideshare.net/AJL2011
The following links are culled from this year's AJL 2011 presentations. More to come next week!
