Why It's In Slingshot
Given that many people now pay taxes, buy groceries, and find life partners online, it makes sense that many also view the Internet as their primary source of information about Judaism. MyJewishLearning, Inc. provides an Internet home base for all things Jewish, serving an online community of people seeking an open, pluralistic approach to Judaism and reaching 650,000 unique individuals a month. MyJewishLearning.com has become the most highly trafficked trans-denominational Jewish education website, and its sister site Kveller.com provides the first and only Jewish parenting website, offering parenting resources, blogs, and an online center for Jewish parents to call home. MyJewishLearning harnesses the accessibility of the Internet to bring Jewish education, community, and resources directly to people’s fingertips. MyJewishLearning’s daily emails deliver tidbits of Torah, cultural information, and trendy Jewish topics into subscribers’ inboxes. Its online articles educate readers about the depth and breadth of Jewish history, literacy, and ritual. MyJewishLearning also hosts blogs for like- minded organizations, promoting them and providing a broader audience. Kveller’s local sites for communities in Baltimore and Long Island have recently begun to offer local resources to promote offline events in order to create micro-communities within the larger Kveller network. MyJewishLearning continues to represent the largest forum for online Jewish engagement, and as the leading website of its kind, other organizations looking to enhance their online appeal view MyJewishLearning as a resource and a consultant. Going forward, the organization plans to develop greater niche market products that target specific communities with the robust content of MyJewishLearning.
