Yenta Helps Single Jews Find Each Other Through GPS

When I received an email from Luba Tolkachyov, the co-founder of a new Jewish singles app, I was intrigued. Luba wrote, “I’ve been following your writing on Jewish Tech and thought you may be interested in Yenta, a new location based mobile phone application for Jewish singles.”

Israel Advocacy on Campus Gets New App

In response to a changing attitude toward Israel on college campuses, the Israel advocacy group StandWithUs lauched in 2001. Its goal was to serve as an informational guerrilla unit of sorts and work with established campus organizations like Hillel to combat anti-Semitism and anti-Israel propaganda.

The new app allows the user to enter any food item or product to gather all of the kosher information including if the certification is up to date.

I would certainly add this helpful utility app to the listing of the best Jewish apps that I recently published here on The Jewish Week website and in a special "Looking Ahead Looking Back" supplement. Here is the article:
