New year, new blog

As you may have noticed, Jewish News has gone through several changes over the past few months, in both the print issue and online.

Now, in time for the New Year, we have a couple of other changes to announce as well.

For one, we are revamping our staff blog. JN Blog has a new look, and content will be updated on a regular basis by editorial staff members, as well as by Publisher Jaime Stern.

Another change, effective immediately, is that organizations will now have the capability to submit calendar events directly to our online calendar. Representatives from these organizations can access this by clicking on “submit” under the Calendar on the right panel of our home page,, or by selecting “calendar” on the Home drop-down menu.

Here’s how to submit a calendar event:

First-time users will need to create an account. Once that’s done, the event information can be entered. Items in red are required and there are several other options, such as selecting what search attributes can be used (Family friendly, All ages, 12 and over, etc.).

Organizations can also set up a public profile, where they can add their logo, website and contact information.

All submitted events will be approved by a Jewish News staff member before going live. The calendar is also viewable on the mobile version of

Email with any questions.

We hope this online calendar will help get the word out about all the great things happening in our community and serve as a vehicle to help people feel more connected.

We at Jewish News wish you a happy, healthy, prosperous and sweet New Year!
