Article Title: How Bubbe Got Her Groove Back-In Cyberspace
By: 5TJT Staff
You know that it’s the 21st century when your bubbe is making her own videos and uploading them to the Internet. “Feed me Bubbe” takes feeding grandchildren to a new level and is just one of the hundreds of videos that can be seen on a brand new Jewish website called Yideoz.com.
After making aliyah four years ago, Bridgitte and Jonathan Raven would e-mail photos to their families overseas. As time went by and the cries of “we never get to see the kids” grew louder, the Ravens realized that to make their family in America feel part of their lives, they would need the ability to send videos of their family instantly over thousands of miles. Even though there are already plenty of websites where one can upload and share videos, you just don’t get the sense that these are the type of places a Yid wants to be hanging out. Thus Yideoz was born!
The goal: to provide the worldwide Jewish community with a safe way to share their lives using the exciting and innovative technology of online video.
Within two months, thousands of Jews have already joined the Yideoz community and the trend is spreading quickly. People have posted videos of weddings and bar mitzvahs, children practicing the mah nishtanah, vacations, and shiurim. Schools, bands, and organizations have used Yideoz to promote themselves to a network of Jewry previously out of their reach. The Ravens proudly say that Yideoz is the only website where videos of Jewish interest can be uploaded and shared in a kosher online environment.
Yideoz also offers a premiere section, where musicians, videographers, companies, organizations, schools, and communities can get their very own slice of the site with a personalized, professional presence designed specifically for their needs.
