Remember when we used to update you on the week’s most interesting/important Jewish stories? Scott W. did it first. Then Candace M. took over. Then we dropped it for a while.
But now we’re back. From outer space… (in case you need to hear the song now)
So if you have a link or news that you want to share with the Jewish community, please email it to me (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Also, we’re going to “steal” a bunch of our stuff from the wonderful people at Moment Magazine who send out a thrice-weekly email with Jewish updates. Check out Moment Magazine’s website to learn more about the country’s largest independent Jewish magazine.
