You may not know this, but there are hundreds of Jewish organizations that are giving away enough Shabbat chickens to choke an army in the hopes of appealing to you. Why? Because the number of Jewish people is shrinking, and those organizations know that what today’s Jews want might not be the same as the generations before them. A quick Google search will give you lists of Jewish camps, Shabbat dinners, trips to Israel, trips to Poland, trips to the Bahamas… (just kidding, we couldn’t find any of those), free children’s books, Shabbats on a beach, Shabbats in a loft, Shabbats online, Sha-barbeques, Rosh Hashanah alternative get- togethers, Hanukkah parties (latke and vodka, anyone?), teen tours, sports programs, etc. etc. etc. Not to mention some really cool synagogues and JCC programs. It can be overwhelming. That’s why we created JELP (Yelp for Jews). The list includes many of the programs that are out there, and if we have one, our opinion, like on Yelp. We also try to tell you where programs fall on the Jewish spectrum, like if something is going to be very Jewy with lots of Hebrew, we’ll let you know in advance. Not that it’s necessarily bad, but it’s nice to be warned, amiright?
Need a full-time temple for your half-Jewish kids?
Why make an account and save your favorite JewBelong stuff? Because someday Jack is going to get off his ass and pop the question and you’re going to get to plan that wedding you've been thinking about since third grade.
It makes us happy to know that you’re back. Have a great day!
Because why use any of your precious brain cells to remember where you kept those great readings that you’ll use someday at Jeffrey’s B Mitzvah? Make an account, keep the readings there. Easy peasy. The only thing you’ll need to remember is your password, and from personal experience that’s hard enough.
Hey, can you watch the phones on Friday? We have a thing.
