I thought writing a new book was a big undertaking! In some ways that was less challenging than launching a new website, which we are doing today, Feb. 28, 2013.
My new book, Jewish Megatrends, has been long scheduled for release on March 1, 2013. I knew that it was important to create a more interactive website than the one I had to help promote the book and to catapult me fully into the 21st century. It seemed a bit ironic that I was writing a book about the future of the Jewish community and I was still not fully up to speed on the use of social media.
I was fortunate to find Ari Evergreen of Shirari Industries who built this new website for me and is now helping to train me to be a regular blogger. If you need web work done, I highly recommend her. Check out www.shirari.com.
Talk about timing! I leave for LA tomorrow morning for the start of a 7-city book tour. I’ll be in LA for five days and ten speaking engagements including two sessions at the CCAR national convention (the Reform Rabbinate). I’ll use this blog space to share some of the highlights of the tour.
