Individuals and families looking for a one-stop resource on Jewish culture, beliefs, history, news and views will find all that and more at My Jewish Learning. Content ranges from the fanciful to the profound. For example, the section on holidays includes explanations of each holiday along with articles related to the holiday’s observance. “Taking Christmas out of Hanukkah” appears with a recipe for Hanukkah cookies. Those who are interested in scripture and theology will find commentary on the weekly Torah portion. Also included are links to numerous blog sites that deal with contemporary Jewish life “from pop culture to sexuality to raising Jewish children in small southern towns.” This trans-denominational site is a portal to dozens of related sites as well, making for seemingly limitless content. This site is designed for Jews and their families, but it is a treasure trove of information for anyone wishing to know more.
