Welcome Reshimu

Looks like there’s a new kid on the Jewish-media block: Reshimu, a group blog made up of bloggers that “have a record of creating and building communities.”

The initial group includes Luke Ford and Hirhurim’s Gil Student. As always, I wish this new venture the best of luck. And while I hate to be hard on a brand new project (that’s still in beta), I can’t help noting: of the 17 listed bloggers and columnists, NONE of them are women.
