Everything For and About the Jewish Community in Greater Boston and Beyond

Update on ShalomBoston.com

With mixed emotions, I will be closing down this website soon.
For almost 18 years, ShalomBoston has been serving the Jewish community of Greater Boston and Massachusetts.  My colleagues and I are proud to have been the first to provide an organized, user-friendly, searchable website with comprehensive information on the local Jewish community.  At first the only one, it continued to be the most popular website of its type, by far, for many years.

Once ShalomBoston was unique, but now there are many websites which provide some or parts of what we have done.  If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, this is a good thing.  I have moved on to study at Hebrew College Rabbinical School, and so with little time left to devote to ShalomBoston.com, it is now time to close this chapter of my life.

Before doing so, however, I want to assure all the faithful users of our very popular Food Page that these recipes will not disappear.  I will make sure to keep them available online, perhaps on my rabbinical website to come - stay tuned for more information on this! 

Also, ShalomBoston is the holder of 37 domain names, most of which are similar but for other geographic areas, and others are related to Jewish food and cooking.  If you are interested in buying any of these domain names, or know someone who might be, please be in touch with me at jstolper@shalomboston.com as soon as possible.

Watch this space for updates on the final days of ShalomBoston.com (and the future of our food resources!).

I hope you had a joyous and light-filled Chanukah, and wish you the best for 2020!
