Announcing Judaism 101, brought to you by MyJewishLearning

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009

We are delighted to announce that beginning in a few weeks, My Jewish Portal will be teaming up with to bring you top-notch educational content every week in our new Judaism 101 section!

Each week we’ll send out a mini-lesson — a few paragraphs you can read in 2-3 minutes, to inform you about something you might not have known, or dust off the Jewish nuggets you learned in elementary school, and like geometry, haven’t really revisited since then.

Look for the first Judaism 101 lesson to come your way by the end of the year, and every week thereafter.

We have a lot going on — not just events.  Unless you’re going to visit us everyday (which would be awesome, but pretty unrealistic for us to expect), the best way to know what’s new on My Jewish Portal is to follow us on the sites you do visit every day.

Here’s our Twitter Feed:

Here’s our facebook page:

To give you an idea of what we post, we’ll send the latest “Did you know…” fun fact, the website of the week, the 10-line torah portion, the Judaism 101 lesson and reminders about some other great features of the site.

Oh, and be a mensch… Tell your friends.

We’re adding new features all the time!  Many of which as so great, we describe them with multiple exclamation marks!!!

We’ve teamed up with Facebook to make it even easier for you to know what’s going on at  Whenever we post a new “did you know…”, reveal next week’s 10-line Torah Portion summary, or unveil a new feature, our fans on Facebook are the first to find out.

So, if you aren’t already, click here to become a fan of The New today.

A new look for MJP

You’ve probably noticed by now… We’ve taken down the tarps to reveal that we aren’t the same old My Jewish Portal.

But the improvements aren’t skin deep.  My Jewish Portal is on it’s way to being the only website you’ll need to visit to find out everything that’s going on at your synagogue, in your community and around the world!

In the “Our World” section you’ll see some new calendars, including Shabbat and Havdallah candle lighting times for your city and Jewish Holidays for every year from now until the time that something really cool replaces the internet completely.  You’ll also find continuously updated Jewish News, a weekly 10-line summary of the current Torah Portion, and little bits of Jewish trivia.  Sorry, but you no longer have an excuse for not knowing relevant Jewish “stuff”.

In the “My Community” section, take a look at our new and improved Community Calendar.  It sorts and filters in more ways than anyone really needs, but will no-doubt keep you entertained for hours.  We’ve always had the Singles and Tikkun Olam calendars, but take a quick look at the Top Events scrolling windows on your homepage, and the dropdowns on top of the community calendar.  We’ve added a voting system so that you can show support for the events you like, and recommend to others.  With that voting capability, we can help you find the most popular and exciting Jewish things going on in your neck of the woods.

Yes, my friends, we are well on our way to creating the most dynamic and innovative Jewish community calendar on the web, and we’re so happy you will be joining us on our journey.

We invite your comments, criticism and ideas for what would make even better!  use the Contact Us page to let us know you care.

Until next time… Our regards to the mishpacha.
