A new free service to help the Jewish community distribute its information through the internet and also get instant reaction has been beta launched at Jewswire.com.
Jewswire.com allows anyone sending out a press release of Jewish interest or containing something Jewish to distribute it online for free.
The new global service has been created by SomethingJewish Network owner JMT Ventures and being in beta mode, is also inviting users to offer their thoughts and comments on using the service.
"Jewish groups and organisations as well as individuals have told us how difficult it is to get their news out on the web," said JMT Ventures co-founder Leslie Bunder. "Through Jewswire.com we enable them to get the news out which others can get either through reading online or through our news feed."
"The advantage of publishing it through Jewswire.com is that readers can instantly comment on the news release and provide comments direct to those who issue the releases," Bunder added. "It really does allow readers direct access to the news releases, something which they have historically never been able to do."
People using Jewswire.com are looking for specific Jewish interest releases and being on Jewswire.com allows those with a story to be told to reach these people.
"Whether you are a Jewish organisation announcing your latest news, or a band with a new CD, Jewswire.com covers all sections of the community and all interests," Bunder added.
