New Bay Area Blog

A new blog entitled Oy Bay! just launched this month, which focuses on Jewish life for young adults in the greater Bay Area. It's spearheaded by Tomer Altman, a Bay Area resident and active member of the J-Blog community. This is an ambitious undertaking, and one that I'm excited to see taking place.

Increasing numbers of young, involved, post-college Jews in the Bay Area are joining Jen's List and the Mission Minyan listserv for info about events and activities, but listservs are by nature exclusive; having one central blog-location where all events will be posted and available to everyone will, I believe, increase the spread of information and the number of young Jews getting involved.

The JewniProj wishes Oy Bay! much success in the months and years to come; you should unite our community online and in the real world. Hatzlacha rabah!

Also, if anyone is interested in being a part of Oy Bay!, they're "currently looking for bright, involved, and well-spoken Jews to join us as contributing writers. Contact taltman [at] gmail.com for more information."

If any of you sluggies will be around this summer, I suggest bookmarking Oy Bay! (http://oybay.wordpress.com) and checking it often.

Shavua tov!
