JTA and My Jewish Learning announced their intention to merge the two organizations, according to an article on JTA's website.

The Promise Of Parenting Portals

When it comes to reaching unaffiliated Jewish parents of young kids, hip and attractive web portals aren’t just a good idea. They actually seem to work.

Shiny Happy Intermarried People

I’m not sure if this was intentional or not, but Kveller has two dueling interfaith narratives on its “Raising Kvell” blog right now: “Interfaith Family Bullying: When Do You Stop Fighting and Just Give Up?”  versus “Apparently My Interfaith Family Is Too

Abigail Pickus, who alas no longer blogs for us, but does do a monthly column on life in Israel, has an interesting piece in e-JewishPhilanthropy about Kesha Ram, a Vermont state legislator who recently went on a Birthright trip to Israel. 

Cheery And Challenging Chanukah-Christmas Chatter

With Chanukah just a few days away, and Christmas not far behind, the Intertubes are not surprisingly very, very congested with interesting Chanukah-Christmas Chatter.
