That’s right - JTNews now has a blog — and it’s a citizens’ blog! Sometimes we’ll be posting items related to the Jewish world, sometimes we’ll be posting concurrently with sister site Jew-ish.com, and in the event of things in the community that need ongoing updates, check them out here — but beyond that, this is a blog for you, our readers!
We welcome your input in making our Jewish community’s online newspaper a more vibrant place. Please keep the following information in mind when you post your statements on our blog:
The Transcript is a moderated blog, meaning it is not edited, but each entry is approved by a moderator on staff at JTNews. Entries that are deemed offensive, derogatory or do not serve the interests of the Jewish community will be rejected. Please note that your posting will not show up immediately, as it does need to be approved, but The Transcript. moderator will make every effort to post your entry as quickly as possible.
The Transcript. is a great place to post thoughts on a situation happening locally in Washington State, nationwide, or even in Israel. If it’s thoughts from a recent vacation to Jewish sites in the South Pacific, that’s great! Put it up! If you’ve got an opinion about your synagogue’s new policy on Shabbat footwear, let’s hear about it! Is your candidate the best person for representing the Jewish community’s interests? Tell us why (though without going overly negative on the candidate’s opposition). But let’s keep the conversation civil, please.
While The Transcript. is meant to be a place for community conversation, it is not meant to be a place to promote events (we have a calendar for that), nor should it be used as a way for any organizations to have a free advertising vehicle. These types of posts will be rejected by the moderator.
Keep an eye on The Transcript. Things are about to get (more) interesting!
