It’s hard to believe that the Jewish month of Elul is already upon us! Since well before the summer months, we’ve been working hard and planning for this week’s relaunch of site. Elul’s mood of renewal ushering in the High Holidays makes it the perfect time to showcase our newly reborn site.

Sit back, relax and enjoy! We hope you will love our redesign and its many new features as much as we do. As you scroll down the home page, you will notice some of these important changes:

  1. We’ve divided our content into “Learning Center” and “Magazine”. As we grow our Learning Center, we hope to encourage more and more women mentors and educators to share with us their teachings, video classes and essays. In doing so, we intend to empower women to keep advancing and graduating in their knowledge and depth of Jewish studies.

  2. Some great new features have been added to our Magazine, and more will be added in the coming weeks. This week, we begin Frazzled No More a new column by Rivka Caroline. Life can be hectic and, as women in particular, we tend to be pulled in so many different directions. Rivka’s goal is to help us become more efficient with our time so that we can nurture our inner selves and find the space for the things that really matter to us.

  3. Also new is our very exciting Rosh Chodesh site. Watch for this monthly feature which will include articles, recipes, insights, videos, crafts and more, all created so that Jewish women can learn and celebrate together on our monthly Jewish holiday.

  4. Another new addition is the wall where we feature Women of Distinction. Here, we will get acquainted with many great women from the past, their beautiful perspective and their enormous contributions to our nation.

  5. Finally, enjoy our weekly chuckle. Laughter uplifts. Take a moment to see the lighter side. (And if you read a good joke that you’d like to share, please send it to us by submitting here.)

Thank you to the many of you who wrote to us with your ideas and suggestions helping us to forge the vision for this new site. Your feedback continues to be integral to us. So, please share your comments, likes and dislikes, and suggestions here to help us keep improving and achieve our goal of making the favorite site of every Jewish woman!

As we prepare for the New Year, I wish you “ketiva vechatima tova” that each of you should be written and sealed for a year full of overflowing blessing!
