Jewish on the WELL

Jewish. It's not just a religion, an ethnic group, a state of mind, a rich cultural heritage, an amazing language . . . it's also a conference. The Jewish conference is a place to explore ever ything about being Jewish, or what being Jewish is becoming as we pass the middle of the 58th century. There is a resource library containing articles of Jewish interest, information about organizations nationally, internationally, or in the Bay Area, an d a small software library. Discussions range from cooking to the the peace process (or lack thereof), from the online Talmud study group to the what's happening in the Jewish renewal movement, from cultural Judaism to orthodoxy, from timely news to the frivolous. It need only be "Jewish" to be of interest. . . and no, you don't even have to be Jewish--you just need to join the WELL and ...

go jewish.

Your current hosts are David Julian Gray (djg) and Ruth Bernstein (ruthb). Other people who have hosted Jewish include Maurice Weitman and Ari Davidow (co-founders), David Cooper, Ruth Neal, Linda Morgan, and Sarah E. Goodman.

Note: The WELL's Jewish conference is a service of the WELL, and is only available to WELL subscribers. Check out the main WELL pages for more information.

The Jewish conference was also co-founded, and co-hosted by Tamar Kaufman, journalist, feminist, and blacksmith extraordinaire, who passed away in October 1994, Cheshvan 5755. This page is dedicated to her memory, and also in the knowledge that she is still somewhere out there in cyberspace, and should be reporting back shortly.

The WELL is a very heimish part of the universe, but it's not the whole kugel. (Nor is the page the WELL--it's a mere representation of some aspects of the WELL's Jewish conference.) Here is an idiosyncratic listing of some other places, people, and fun Jewish online resources:

Nifty resources we're not sure you'd find if they weren't posted here
