What other good Jewish websites are there? Also, anyone know of a website that you can ask a halacha question which cannot be asked publicly (inappropriate)? Thanks.September 28, 2010 6:00 am at 6:00 am #698194WIYMember
I would put http://www.simpletoremember.com/ in my top 5 or 6 Jewish websites. Really amazing reading, mp3s and videos on the site. Definitely worth checking out.September 28, 2010 6:05 am at 6:05 am #698195erm_saywhatMemberSeptember 28, 2010 8:55 am at 8:55 am #698196
ermsaywhat-I don’t mean private. I mean a question that I can’t ask here because it wouldn’t be appropriate to discuss it here but in a different setting it might be okay. Also, I should have specified a website for jewish teens (like the cr)but all are appreciated :).September 28, 2010 1:20 pm at 1:20 pm #698197The chamelonMember
try revach.net for a quick Nosh of torah content. They post 3 to 4 new items every day Holcha aguda bios anecdotes. Squeky clean no
ads. They also have an ask the Rav section. Skim their archives for the Qs that came in and what kind of an answer you can expectSeptember 28, 2010 1:57 pm at 1:57 pm #698198dunnoMember
someone told me about frumteens.comSeptember 28, 2010 2:15 pm at 2:15 pm #698199September 28, 2010 2:23 pm at 2:23 pm #698200
Aish.com is better than fantastic, it’s awesome! Frumteens.com has generally attracted (so I’m told) kids not necessarily OTD, but with questions. Definitely not das Torah. However, I did find it helpful in figuring out what types of hashkafa various semanaries in EY have, ie those that were traditional Bais Yaakov, versus those that are “chilled” Bais Yaakov – and those that were very text oriented.
For the BT’s on this site, please check out BeyondBT.com. A great resource for the issues that tend to occur in a BT’s life even if they’ve been frum for many years.
As for asking questions, shouldn’t that be left to your LOR?September 28, 2010 2:51 pm at 2:51 pm #698201mi.yodeyaMember
Thanks for the plug. Indeed, if you have a non-trivial question of practical Halacha, you should ask your Rabbi. As it says at the top of every page on mi.yodeya:
Like Wikipedia, mi.yodeya makes no guarantee of validity, and does not offer professional (particularly rabbinic) advice.
Treat mi.yodeya information like it came from a crowd of your friends.September 28, 2010 3:33 pm at 3:33 pm #698202tikvuchkaMember
i always use askmoses.com its lubavitch and VERY annonymouse 😉September 28, 2010 3:49 pm at 3:49 pm #698203erm_saywhatMember
mi.yodeya – No problem. I assume that you’re the mod mi.yodeya.com, Correct?September 28, 2010 4:16 pm at 4:16 pm #698204YummyYummyMember
http://WWW.NACHASMUSIC.COM has great videos, pictures… of the newest jewish singing sensation.September 28, 2010 4:59 pm at 4:59 pm #698205
YummyYummy, I don’t suppose you have any personal/business interest in the site you posted?
However, for good quality Jewish Music videos from many sources, try Gruntig.com.September 28, 2010 6:41 pm at 6:41 pm #698207ImanonovParticipant
I find that the Moderator on Frumteens.com is prepared to tackle many a question others wouldn’t, has tremendous Torah-dig kosher Hashkofos and is very clear.September 28, 2010 7:03 pm at 7:03 pm #698208rebdonielMember
yutorah.org and kolhaloshon.comSeptember 28, 2010 7:54 pm at 7:54 pm #698209mi.yodeyaMember
Yes, I’m Isaac, the Founder and Administrator of mi.yodeya.September 29, 2010 1:43 am at 1:43 am #698210thinking and thinkingMember
I know the moderator of frumteens (the original one), and he is a very chashuv Talmud Chacham. I know that he got overwhelmed by the site and brought other moderators aboard; and I’m certain that those were people he trusted.
Naaleh.com has a tremendous variety of shiurim, and it’s free. (although they do ask you for a donation every time you pause a video!). I’ve put lots of Naaleh shiurim onto my mp3 player.September 29, 2010 2:32 am at 2:32 am #698211
How could I have forgotten – one of the true gems for shiurim (audio and video) TorahAnytime.com.September 29, 2010 3:31 am at 3:31 am #698212I can only tryMember
Related to this topic…
A couple of years back somebody started a “Good Jewish Torah Links” thread.
There were literally dozens of sites posted, including many that were not only learning-related (i.e. minyan finder, zmanim, etc.)
Here’s the URL for that thread:September 29, 2010 4:14 am at 4:14 am #698213rockymountainsMember
I’m not sure if this is what was meant by,”a website that you can ask a halacha question which cannot be asked publicly” but for women try Nishmat-women’s health and halacha here is the link http://www.yoatzot.org/index.php of course it’s always best to ask your Rav.September 29, 2010 4:24 am at 4:24 am #698214charliehallParticipant
Yutorah.org is amazing. Thousands of shiurim including essentially the entire semichah program!September 29, 2010 6:55 am at 6:55 am #698215
