Abstract:

The author describes "b-linked.org" - a website for Jewish teens aged 13-18. The purpose of the site is for teens to connect with one another and learn about a range of pluralistic opportunities for meaningful Jewish involvement. Created by B'nai Brith Youth Organization (BBYO), a pluralistic Jewish teen movement, b-linked is an effort to re-engage teens in Jewish life by providing new gateways to Jewish experiences. The author argues that b-linked is a space through which BBYO can inspire and share meaningful experiences with users and lead them on a path toward deeper Jewish education.
