Is Social Media Reviving Judaism?

It’s astonishing to think there was a time when we couldn’t find answers to all our questions in less than a minute using the Internet. Whether we want to know the daily special at our favorite restaurant, hear President Obama’s latest campaign speech, or learn how our friends are doing or where to find the perfect wind chimes, we now have immediate access to this information. Here at 614, we’ve come to wonder how social media is reshaping the messages of Judaism, and whether Jewish leaders are pleased or disheartened by this open-source knowledge. Is social media helping keep Judaism alive or chipping away at it? In this issue, you’ll hear what five Jewish women have to say on the matter.
