New Blog: The New Jew

I was doing a bit of research this morning on the Areivim Fund, which I wrote about two weeks ago, and stumbled upon The New Jew, a blog that deals exclusively in Jewish philanthropy. It’s still bare as of yet (it just launched last week), but it’s the only blog of its type that I know of. 

The New Jew is run by Maya Norton, who asks, “I hope you will join in my quest to advance my own knowledge of the depth and diversity of Jewish philanthropy as I use the web as a social networking tool for nonprofit change.”

Now, honestly, I have no idea exactly what she means by “use the web as a social networking tool for nonprofit change” or exactly how she intends to accomplish that, but for all of you with an interest in Jewish philanthropy, Maya’s blog may be worth keeping an eye on.
