What is MetroJews.org?

MetroJews.org is your portal to local Jewish life. It is a free resource where you can find out about upcoming community events and volunteer projects, join a minyan, post a free profile, search for available housing, and post your thoughts. You can subscribe and receive customized weekly e-mails and/or you can view your customized material online.

Our mission is to help us connect to our Jewish community. There is no fee for individuals or organizations to use the site. Members can get detailed e-mails for a subscription fee or summary information for free.



How long does it take for a new post ("listing") to show up on the site?

If you are logged into an active organization or as an existing member, your listing will appear on the site as soon as you finish posting it. If you are a new member or organization, then your first listing(s) will be reviewed and activated (usually within 24 hours). If you post through jTool, then your listing will go up as soon as it is approved and formatted (usually within 72 hours).
