Last summer, to mark its fifth anniversary of publication, the Philadelphia Jewish Voice moved from a monthly electronic magazine format to an electronic newspaper format. The new format makes it easier for us to provide more up-to-date content as new feature articles appear on our website on a daily basis. For the ease of readers familiar with our magazine format, we continue to send reminder emails periodically with the "look and feel" of our old format including hyperlinks to some of our recent articles. The new format also provides a community calendar listing events open to Delaware Valley Jewish Community, and a "shared items" link to interesting articles we have found around the web.
The new format is interactive and makes it easy for our reader to participate in the discussion:
Here are some suggestions to help you get the most out of the Philadelphia Jewish Voice.
How To Read The Philadelphia Jewish Voice
Once or twice a month: If you like our old format, look out for our periodic emails. The email should be familiar to our long-time readers. In each section (News and Opinion, Israel, Networking Central, The Kosher Table, Raising a Mensch, Living Judaism, Teen Voice, and Around Our Community), the latest feature articles are listed. Click on the titles of the articles which interest you to read the full stories. If you received these instructions by email from the Philadelphia Jewish Voice then you are all set, since you are obviously already on our mailing list. If this email was forwarded to you by a thoughtful friend, or if you need to update your email address, then go to www.pjvoice.com/subscribe.htm for a free subscription to our mailing list.
Every day or two: The latest articles can be seen on the front page of our website blog.pjvoice.com. The articles are listed from newest to oldest, so "bookmark" our website and be sure to visit it regularly to see our latest feature articles. Some articles are too long to appear completely on the front page. To "jump" to the rest of the article, click on the words "There's More..." which you will find at the bottom of the introduction to that article.
As News Breaks: If you are familiar with RSS Feeds (for example Google Reader), then you can be alerted whenever new content appears on our website. You provide a variety of feeds so that you can be alerted whenever an article appears on the front page, whenever your favorite author posts something, whenever an article appears on a subject of interest to you, whenever the our newsletter is emailed out, or whenever someone posts a comment on any article (or on an article of your choice). Look for the RSS icon or contact us for more details.
Away From Your Computer: The Philadelphia Jewish Voice is only available online, but you can print a copy of the articles to read at your leisure. Click on "Print Friendly View" at the bottom of any article to display a version of the article better formatted for printing. Now you can read the Philadelphia Jewish Voice on Shabbat, on the shore, while travelling wherever you go!
To Read More: If you have read everything on the Philadelphia Jewish Voice and can't wait for more, check out the list of "Shared Items" on the top right of our front page. It contains a list of the latest links to interesting articles we have found around the internet. (Feel free to bring your favorite links to our attention.)
