Take Five asked Sieradski to list five innovative Jewish Web sites. 
 
1. Build A Prayer — BBYO's new website for creating personalized Shabbat prayerbooks. New, flawed (see David Wilensky's recent Jewschool review), but a step in the right direction.
 
2. Jewish Boston   — Community events, listings and voices in a one sleek, social web-ready package. A model for Jewish communities everywhere.
 
3. Tagged Tanakh  — JPS's new website for collaboratively annotating the text of the Tanakh.
 
4. iTalmud  — Not a website, but perhaps the best Jewish iPhone app on the market, puts the entire shas in your pocket in Aramaic and
English with hyperlinked annotation and downloadable companion audio shiurim.
 
5. ShulShopper  — Not to toot my own horn, but since there's still nothing out there like it, ShulShopper allows you to discover, rate and review Jewish congregations.
