The Summary: • Nine apps rolled into one • Biographies - from Biblical, Antiquity, and Modern • Hebrew/ English Glossary with over 300 terms • Live Hebrew Calendar Date • RSS Headlines from the Jerusalem Post and Haaretz • Descriptions of Prayers and Holidays, an RSS Parsha Stream, and more!
The Details: The Good Jew app is great for anyone interested in learning a little more about Jewish history and customs. We focus on breadth of knowledge, combining several app concepts into one neat package. There is a news feed to the Jerusalem Post, Haaretz, and the Forward, a Wisdom section with Pirkei Avot and Kabbalah, a Prayer section with an overview of religious texts, common blessings with Hebrew and English text, an overview of the holidays with associated blessings, a dynamic feed to weekly sermons (Parsha), and the Psalms of David. We have a calendar section with a 10 year listing of Jewish holidays and the current date in the Hebrew calendar. There’s a glossary with hundreds of Yiddish terms and definitions as well as biographies of 40+ individuals from Biblical, Middle-Ages, and Modern eras. Hopefully, with a little knowledge distilled onto your mobile device, you'll be one or two taps away from being a Good Jew.
