LivingSocial’s Antisemitic Halloween Party

livingsocial_geltSoo looks like I will never again be perusing LivingSocial for a teeth-whitening deal ever again. The popular flash-sale website made a major mistake, and not one easily forgivable–seeing as though there was pre-planning involved.

The company, based in Washington D.C. threw a 7 Deadly Sins-themed Halloween Party last weekend, and the party’s “greed” room was crudely decorated with gold and silver decorations and filled with dreidels and gold coins.

Their publicity department admitted there were, in fact, dreidels in the “greed” room, described as a place to “get greedy challenging friends to a plethora of games,” and put up this apology:

“We have looked into it and determined that the inclusion of dreidels with the other games in the gaming room was not a smart choice, and we are very sorry to have upset anyone,” Nolan told The Washington Jewish Week. “Certainly this behavior does not reflect who we are as a company.”

It doesn’t reflect who they are as a company? Oh, please. Whoever works for a company reflects the behavior of the company—and whoever planned this offensive and ignorant idea had to have talked about it with others who probably got a good laugh out of the thought of it.

It’s amazing because a “greed” room can be filled with any number of things that represent decadence and abundance, yet of all items, they chose dreidels? For a company that offers myriad deals in so many diverse arenas; from aquarium outings to apple picking to dinner for two—they couldn’t have drawn from any other resource for creative inspiration besides somebody’s sinister humor and prejudice?

Did LivingSocial not take into consideration that at least one Jew in Washington D.C. would walk into the party and take offense to their blatant anti-Semitism? Do Jews work at LivingSocial? I’m sure there must be some—and it’s even possible that Jews who work there contributed to the “Jewy” decorations in bad taste. If so, I’d like to hear from you!

“Think Jews, Think Greed,” was the message they spread—and it’s all around lame and disappointing. Way to lose a bunch of great customers LivingSocial. You know how much we like deals.

Exciting News: Pluralistic Jewish Community For The Win!

slingshotHelp us schep some naches!

Today, for the 5th year in a row, MyJewishLearning.com was named one of the top American Jewish organizations by Slingshot, for in their words, our “cutting-edge, influential work as well as its ability to do so much with a relatively small budget and staff.”

As delighted as we are by the recognition, we’re even happier by our esteemed company, which includes our blog partners at the Institute of Southern Jewish LifeRabbis Without Borders, and Keshet. We couldn’t agree more that they’re doing vital, exciting Jewish communal work, from coast to coast (and even in the middle!).

If you don’t already follow their blogs, don’t wait another day. Read about their personal stories and community debates, and congratulate all our partners on their incredible work. Thanks for reading!

MJL is seeking its next CEO

This entry was posted in General on by .

Changes are afoot at MJL, Inc. as we begin the exciting search for a new Chief Executive Officer. We are looking for an innovative and passionate visionary to lead the MJL team while developing new products and deepening the impact on current and future readers (like you!).

The ideal candidate will have a broad knowledge of the Jewish world, significant fundraising experience, and a passion for using technology and new media to engage Jews and non-Jews in Jewish learning and conversation. The job description is below, and all applications should be submitted by September 4th. Please share this post with anyone who may be interested.

Chief Executive Officer of My Jewish Learning, Inc.

MyJewishLearning, Inc. (MJL), the premier Jewish media organization, is seeking an innovative, dynamic, and passionate Chief Executive Officer (CEO) who will guide MJL’s continued growth as the leading online presence in pluralistic Jewish education and engagement.

The MJL CEO position presents a unique opportunity for a visionary leader to broaden the horizon of what is possible for the Jewish experience online. Singular in its commitment to enhancing Jewish knowledge and engagement from a trans-denominational perspective, MJL is a remarkable Jewish pluralistic initiative seeking an equally remarkable leader. We seek a creative thinker seasoned by real world experience in organizational leadership and implementation of new media strategies. Through the development of compelling content and creation of online community, the MJL CEO will stand at the nexus of Jewish life and technology. With a commitment to empower MJL users from every background to learn and engage with Jewish culture and tradition, the MJL CEO will run a fiscally viable not-for-profit media company while managing a dynamic staff committed to broadening the horizons of  the Jewish virtual world.

Who We Are

MyJewishLearning, Inc. (“MJL”) is the leading non-denominational Jewish media organization. Through its various web products—MyJewishLearning.com, Kveller.com, TheJewniverse.com—MJL educates and engages more than 700,000 people a month. MJL has been included in the last four editions of Slingshot: A Resource Guide to Jewish Innovation, an annual compilation of the 50 most inspiring and innovation organizations in the North American Jewish Community, and has won multiple American Jewish Press Association Awards for “Most Outstanding” Jewish website.

MJL currently has three signature projects:

MyJewishLearning.com focuses on Jewish education and knowledge–everything from guidelines on religious customs, etiquette, and ritual to learning about obscure Jewish philosophers. MyJewishLearning.com also features weekly Torah portion commentaries, quizzes, recipes, and several dynamic blogs, including partner blogs produced with Keshet, The Institute of Southern Jewish Life, Rabbis Without Borders, The Foundation for Jewish Camp, and The Jewish Book Council.

Kveller.com features parenting resources on everything from pre-conception through preschool–information on Jewish genetic diseases, circumcision, Jewish kiddie music, and much more. Kveller also has a Jewish baby name bank, multiple bloggers (including actress Mayim Bialik), and a robust online community that facilitates profound conversations, connecting Jewish parents living all over the United States.

TheJewniverse.com is a spin-off of MyJewishLearning’s popular daily email, keeping subscribers up to the minute with news and information of interest across the Jewish world. Additionally, MJL owns Shamash.org, one of the first Jewish websites, which publishes several highly trafficked webpages, including a popular kosher restaurant database.

Across all these platforms, the CEO is responsible for conceiving strategies to deepen MJL’s impact on its large and diverse audience, while also developing new products and expanding its constituency.

What We Are Seeking

As the leader of a uniquely positioned not-for-profit organization, the MJL CEO is an important communal thought leader on the intersection of Jewish life, media and technology and an advocate for the masses of Jews who engage with Jewish content and community online. The MJL team is made up of talented, energetic individuals working collaboratively in content, technology, design, marketing, and finance roles, and the CEO will lead and inspire them, while increasing the scope of MJL products and readership.

The talents and experience we seek include:

  • Demonstrated success in growing an organization, employing effective management, creativity,
  • A deep knowledge of the American Jewish landscape.
  • Excellent verbal, written, and technological communication skills.
  • A passion for using technology and new media to engage Jews and non-Jews in Jewish learning and conversation.
  • Ability to lead and inspire a team and grow and engage a board.
  • Demonstrated ability to raise and attract financial resources.

Position Summary

Leadership and Visioning

  • Provide leadership, vision, and policy guidance for MJL.
  • Serve as a public spokesperson for and grow MJL’s national profile to become a visible resource/expert to the Jewish community on Jewish learning and engagement in the age of the internet.
  • Establish editorial priorities and direction for MJL’s growing base of media platforms.
  • Partner and collaborate with other Jewish organizations, and pursue content and distribution partnerships with other Jewish organizations and media outlets.
  • Increase MJL’s readership and audience.
  • Advance the MJL brand and presence in the general online world.
  • Engage and strengthen a committed board of directors.

Resource Development/Sustainability

  • Strengthen existing donor relationships and cultivate new major donors.
  • Expand financial resources for the organization and create strategies for monetizing web traffic.
  • Explore and implement innovative approaches for increased diversification of income streams.

Management

  • Build and grow a highly functioning organization.
  • Engage and empower a team of talented staff members and recruit and develop talent for the organization.
  • Ensure the fiscal soundness of the organization and spearhead its development, marketing, public relations, and programmatic expansion.

MJL is based in New York City and the CEO position requires significant travel. There are currently eight full-time employees and one part-time employee, and a network of freelance writers and editors.

How to Apply

Please forward your resume and cover letter to MJLCEOPosition@gmail.com, describing what interests you about this opportunity and why you feel particularly suited for this position. Indicate your name and “CEO” in the subject line. Applications should be submitted by September 4th.

Amazing Gifts For Your Mom (Whoever She May Be)

This entry was posted in General on by .

At the Passover Seder we have the Four Children, so it seems only right that on Mother’s Day we should have the Four Moms. Except, really, how do you divide all moms into just 4 categories? So we added a 5th, and are suggesting some gifts to help you keep the guilt trips at bay.

Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 12th. Order today and get it in time to give to your mom, whichever of these categories she exemplifies or defies!

purple-leaf-necklace

Fancy Mom
Not every mom is a jewelry-lover, but if yours is, you can’t do better than this stunning and simply beautiful purple leaf pendant necklace made in Israel ($141). We love how elegant and chic it is.

tree-clock

Stepmom
We love this awesome Family Tree Wall Clock ($20) that has room for you to add 12 pictures from your family, 1 for every hour of the day. It’s a nice way to acknowledge your big mixed family while maintaining some design flair.

 

Ergo carrier

New Mom
Even if you’re not into attachment parenting, this popular Ergo carrier ($129.95) is an amazing (and comfortable) way to carry your baby and keep your hands free. Plus, it’s cute and made of organic cotton.

 

yoga-mat

Yoga Mom
If your mom has gotten into yoga or pilates, we suggest you surprise her with the deluxe Manduka Pro Mat. ($80-$138) It’s the mat serious yogis dream about – and yogis say you really can tell the difference.

 

haddassahThe Old School Mom
Is your mom active in her synagogue’s sisterhood, president of her local Hadassah chapter, and maker of the all time best coffee cake in the universe? Then we suggest you go in with your siblings to get this trio of fantastic cookbooks:

 

The Hadassah Everyday Cookbook ($24)
Classic, beautifully photographed Jewish favorites, with a contemporary twist, by one of MyJewishLearning’s favorite young food writers.

aromasfinal

Aromas of Aleppo ($31)
Most of Syria’s Jewish community left the country during the 20th century. This gorgeous cookbook captures some of their rich, tantalizing culinary heritage.

jerusalem-final

and Jerusalem: A Cookbook ($20)
One of our favorites this year, by the Israeli-Palestinian duo sweeping bestseller lists with their healthful, glorious Jerusalem cuisine.

 

Happy Mother’s Day!
