Who and what is JewishBuilder?

 

The founders of JewishBuilder have been developing technologies to help Jewish organizations connect since 2000. We are deeply committed to helping synagogues, temples and other communal organizations grow. Our community engagement engine provides Jewish organizations a private, easy-to-use, full featured solution to connect members and help them grow their religion.

Why does my organization need JewishBuilder?

 

Online social networks have exploded in popularity and it's not just young kids using them. Members of your own community want to connect with and learn from each other, but the unique needs of Jewish organizations require features not found in these open environments. JewishBuilder lets you harness the power of connective technology and manage concerns over member privacy, branding and content control.

How is JewishBuilder different than other social networking sites?

 

First, most social networking sites are built around the individual. JewishBuilder is built around your organization. Second, these sites open their members to everyone and anything on the Internet. Your community is private and you can maintain control over membership and content. Third, open social networks lack a portfolio of specific features aimed at improving the spiritual life of your community such as interest tags, personalized communications, varying levels moderation, reporting and branding.

Can I make my profile, events and circles private?

 

Yes. Profiles, events and circles each have unique privacy settings, allowing you to control who can see and interact with your information.

What about moderation?

 

Our configurable moderation system allows creation of content (blog posts or circles, for example) to be moderated either by organization administrators, by circle organizers or be open.  For example, you might not have any moderation on the Men's Club circle but have the teen programs director moderate the youth circle.

How much does it cost?

 

Start a free circle for your organization. There is NO CONTRACT AND NO PRICING COMMITMENT.  It allows you to list events, add circles, post pictures and start connecting. As your needs grow, you can expand into an affordable, monthly subscription package suitable for your organizations.

Do I still need my website?

 

JewishBuilder was created to be your private, member engagement and connectivity engine. Your website, on the other hand, is often designed to be searchable by browsers and outsiders, and for general public information. Certainly there is a place for both, which is why JewishBuilder provides the capability to build a new public website, for free, with up to 3 pages. Or upgrade to a subscription package and get a 10 page site with 500 mb of storage included.
