July 2022 Newsletter


Dear Webmasters:

We are plugging along with our Themify Builder upgrade, which includes minor bug fixes and new features. While taking a little longer than planned, we have yet to run into any issues with the sites we've already upgraded. We will continue to notify each webmaster prior to their website update. For those whose sites have already been upgraded, I hope you're enjoying the new features.

Digital content can be used by people who have a broad range of disabilities, including those who have visual, hearing, mobility, or cognitive impairments, with a variety of tools. Here are Six Ways to Make Your Digital Content More Accessible (and Why You Should Care). If you wish to add the accessibility toolbar, let me know.

Lately, some of you have had issues with how your PayPal account syncs with your Gravity Forms. If users are submitting payments successfully via PayPal, but you are not receiving an admin notification, it may be a PayPal IPN (Internet Protocol Network) issue. In this case, the payment email address you configured in the gravity forms PayPal feed settings is not the primary email address in your PayPal account. Follow these steps to fix this issue.

Don't forget to utilize the Communications group and the RJ Web Builder group in The Tent as a place to share resources, ask questions and connect with other communities and congregation webmasters.

Please help me congratulate the congregation who has gone live recently on RJ Web Builder 3.0 (a full list is always available on the help site):

Unified Jewish Congregation of Baton Rouge, Baton Rouge, LA

Quick Tips

Website Content Best Practices
We have developed a series of guidelines to provide you with best practices when it comes to writing inclusive content, taking pictures, creating podcasts and producing videos.

Did You KNow?

Fall Holiday Print and Digital Bulletin Ads are Available
Use these Rosh HaShanah ads for your congregation's newsletter or bulletin (print or email) and on your website or Facebook page, Instagram, or Twitter. You will need a Reform Movement Marketplace login to access.

If your congregation has a virtual gathering or program that's open to the public, submit it for inclusion in the Reform Movement calendar.


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.
