28 September 2005 - Points of Jew (www.pointsofjew.com) is a "group" blog - an uberblog covering Jewish issues and politics with a focus looking at these areas from a UK perspective.
Points of Jew aims to represent the full spectrum of Jewish views. It is seeking people who have views and can express them, people who are fed up with the way in which existing Jewish media fails to tackle issues of concern to the community.
"From the left to the right, from the athiest to the ultra orthodox, from the Sephardi to the Askenazi, from the Levy to the Cohen - Points of Jew is pretty much about being an inclusive blog reflecting Jewish news, current affairs and issues from a UK Jewish perspective," said Points of Jew
"Points of Jew is here to provide a way for Jewish voices to be heard, both inside our own community as well as outside of it," Bunder added.
In its statement of creation, Points of Jew has highlighted a number of reasons for establishing a UK Jewish group blog.
A lack of real Jewish media has left the Jewish community without a means to express itself.
What media there is, is out of touch and out of date with it readers.
Existing Jewish media refuses to tackle issues of importance to the community and becomes its own worse parody.
Points of Jew aims to provide the perspective, views and insight you don't see in existing Jewish media. We are about connecting with the community and the community connecting with us.
Points of Jew is here to provide a way for Jewish voices to be heard, both inside our own community as well as outside of it.
