Nine apps rolled into one. Glossary, Biographies, Calendar, Headlines, and more.

The Good Jew is an app for anyone interested in learning a little more about Jewish history and customs. Developer focused on breadth of knowledge, combining several app concepts into one neat package.

There is a news feed to the Jerusalem Post, Haaretz, and the Forward, a Wisdom section with Pirkei Avot and Kabbalah, a Prayer section with an overview of religious texts,  common blessings with Hebrew and English text, an overview of the holidays with associated blessings, a dynamic feed to weekly sermons (Parsha), and the Psalms of David.

There is a calendar section with a 10 year listing of Jewish holidays and the current date in the Hebrew calendar. There’s a glossary with hundreds of Yiddish terms and definitions as well as  biographies of 40+ individuals from Biblical, Middle-Ages, and Modern eras.

Hopefully, with a little knowledge distilled onto your mobile device, you’ll be one or two taps away from being a Good Jew.
