What's Nu?*

The Glossary of Jewish Terminology is constantly updated to reflect every Jewish term used in this site.

The Current Calendar is updated regularly, and contains calendars for the current three months.

October 21, 2020 All of the pages are now in the new mobile-friendly format, though I am working on tweaking it for best appearance.

The last piece left to enter the mobile world is the text of the Prayers and Blessings. I minimally updated it, but I am working on improving it by shortening each line of Hebrew text to be narrow enough to fit on a mobile screen. For larger screens, the Hebrew and English will appear side-by-side. I am finding that this shorter text makes it easier to see what the individual words and phrases mean, if you are interested in learning and understanding the Hebrew. I am also adding more information to the explanations to those pages.
August 23, 2020 Yes, this is the same site that has been answering Frequently Asked Questions about Jews and Judaism in plain English for almost for 25 years. The information is the same, but I finally decided to join the 21st century, updating to a more mobile-friendly look and feel. I have already updated more than 30 pages, including all of the fall holiday pages like Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Sukkot. I aim to have the whole site updated before Rosh Hashanah. I hope you like the new look and feel!

*For those who don't get the pun: "nu" is a Yiddish word equivalent to English words like "so?" or "well?," and can be used all by itself to mean "What's new?"
