CARLSBAD — Rabbi Yeruchem Eilfort, director of Chabad at La Costa, has announced the unveiling of the newly renovated Chabad Web site, powered by Chabad.org, a Jewish Web content provider.
“We have taken the basic content of Chabad.org and customized it to fit the needs of the local Jewish community, as well as our non-Jewish neighbors who may be interested in learning more about who we are and what we believe,” Rabbi Eilfort said.
The Web site includes such diverse features as a massive online Jewish library, animated shows and games for children, a contemporary news magazine, up-to-the-minute updates on Chabad activities around the world, updates on the situation in Israel, local classes and programs offered by Chabad at La Costa (including audio/video of past classes), and even an online Judaica shop. Rabbi Eilfort also plans on adding a mechanism to order kosher meat for a new Kosher cooperative he is starting this month.
The Rabbi’s favorite aspects of the Web site include the online library and the special feature where users can Ask the Rabbi any question they may have. The entire site is open and free to anyone who wishes to log on by going to www.ChabadatLaCosta.com.
