Welcome to The Jewish Journal’s new web site

If you can read this, you’re one of the first visitors to JewishJournal.com 2.0, the happy and shiny new version of The Jewish Journal online.

We finally have a real content management system, which means we’ve added a lot of the Web 2.0 ‘social networking’ tools that finally exploit the two-way, read/write aspects of the WWW.

You can track stories which are most popular, most emailed, or most commented, easily find stories by the same person and more stories on a topic.

There’s more—easier sharing, a state of the art Community Calendar which makes it easy for readers to post events for the community, and much better integration of our audio and video elements.  The blogs are now searchable, and we’ve added a tag cloud and RSS feeds.

That’s all featues and no benefits so let me say it this way:

Our new site is more fun and more useful because we now feature lots more of the secret ingredient for web communities: you!

Take a look around, especially the new section pages (Los Angeles stories, Sports stories, Music stories, etc.) and new features. 

We are especially excited about Hollywood Jew, which will be filled with delicious Industry morsels.

And please comment on stories, check out the forums, share the cool stuff you find with your friends, and let us know what you think of our new look.

We’re still ironing out a few bugs, but on the whole everyone here thinks it’s pretty cool.  We hope you do, too.

Send bug reports to webmaster@jewishjournal.com (we are still having some blog migration issues, thanks) and have a lovely long weekend.
