I wanted to take a few minutes to update you, my loyal readers and viewers, on some exciting new developments taking place at Jew in the City. You’ll be happy to know that after many requests we have finally filmed several new Jew in the City episodes and are in the process of editing them. One even includes a well-known Jewish celebrity (although that’s all I will tell you for now!)
These new videos will be released one at a time starting in the next few weeks once the new Jew in the City website is launched. (We’re almost done building it and it looks pretty darn cool!) Besides the blog and the new episodes, the website will feature a Q & A section where you can email me your questions and/or read how I answered other people’s questions. You’ll also have the ability to download my awesome new JITC logo, which you can use as wallpaper on your home screen. We’ll be opening up a JITC online store, and finally, the new site will offer you the reader/viewer the option to set up free telephone appointments with me to discuss any Jewish questions or issues you have as well get connected to local Jewish resources in your area if you’d like to learn more about Judaism in person.
Also, JewintheCity.com was recently nominated for best religion blog on Blogger’s Choice Awards. If you’d like to case your vote for JITC, just click here and let your voice be heard!
This week’s lesson is about the importance of giving tzedaka or charity. We’re in the process of filing for tax exempt status which will retroactively cover any donations given at this point. And I’ll let you in on a little secret – the “Attention: DO NOT CLICK” button in the upper right hand corner of the website is actually a donation jar for anyone who’d like to help financially support all the exciting growth taking place here.
So please continue to read and watch and help spread the word to your friends and family about JITC. I’m looking forward to hearing more from YOU on the new site.
