RSS - A Primer

What is RSS?

RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is an easy way to get the content you want whenever it is updated even if you are not on our website. provides continually updated Jewish content and learning feeds for select sections of our site and delivers them directly to your desktop news reader.

How can I use RSS?

There are several ways to access RSS feeds. You can install a news reader that displays RSS feeds from the Web sites you select. Like an email program or a Web browser, the news reader serves as a kind of information portal, and provides a real-time interface to the feeds you select. Once the RSS reader is set up to access feeds, it will continually poll the RSS feeds for the latest articles. A number of free and commercial news readers are available for download. Web-based newsreaders are available as well. Popular news readers include RSS Bandit, Feed Demon and Bloglines. Search for "RSS News Reader" on your favorite search engine to find software available for download, or other RSS reader solutions.

After installing the news reader, you can subscribe to each feed manually from our Web site in various ways, including by dragging the URL of the RSS feed into your news reader or by cutting and pasting the URL into a new feed in your news reader.
