RJ WebBuilder 2.0


The URJ has partnered with Whole Megillah, a technology division of Virtually Beautiful, Inc., to launch RJ WebBuilder 2.0, a custom platform of state-of-the-art websites for URJ synagogues. As with the first generation of RJ WebBuilder sites offered to congregations by the URJ, the service remains a benefit of URJ membership.

The new RJ WebBuilder 2.0 is designed to enable synagogues the ability to create a unique, exciting and engaging online presence. Each website offers features tailored for Reform congregational use, enriched by content provided by the URJ, and allows for significant customization. The new platform offers simple management, modern designs, and a scalable and expandable website platform that includes many made-to-order features.
