RJ WebBuilder 2.0 Newsletter


Dear Webmasters:

Over the past few months, we have been working to move many sites to a brand new server, as the RJ WebBuilder program had outgrown our current server architecture. It is also necessary to move away from all development sites still using a wholemegillah1, wholemegillah2, wholemegillah3 and megillahserver URL and get those sites on their own control panels within our server. Please contact me if you are still using a development site with one of those domains as they are scheduled to expire this month. I can then go over the options you have.

Please help me congratulate those congregations who have gone live recently.

Kol Hakavod to the new sites!

Quick Tips

Make Sure Your Site is Searchable by Search Engines
Want to make sure you will turn up in Google Searches? There are a few quick steps to make sure your site is found. You can also add search words to individual articles.

New URL for JTA's News Feed
If you are currently using a Jewish News RSS Scroller module with JTA's RSS feed, you may notice that the module is no longer working. If so, you will need to update the feed being used within that module. Go to the module manager, edit that module and under RSS sources, remove the current URL and add http://www.jta.org/feed.

Many of our communications assets (print-ready ads, web banners, etc.) for congregations have moved to the new Reform Movement collaborative platform, The Tent, where you can find resources, seek information, and share advice with peers from Reform congregations across North America. There you can find print ads and web/social media/email banners for your holiday emails, websites, social media, and printed communications.

The URJ Provides Many Holiday Resources
Update your website's holiday pages with the vast resources provided to you on ReformJudaism.org. Feel free to cross post articles and cite us as your source. Get your holiday pages updated just in time for the spring holidays.

Staying in Touch

We are challenged in reaching current webmasters due to high turnover and changes in email addresses. If you are receiving this email, you are the person who was reported to the URJ to be handling your congregation's website. If there are additional people who need to be on this list or if you need to get off this list, please send corrected information to datamgmt@urj.org.
