Project Genesis on WFMU

Rabbi Zvi Goldberg of the Star-K was interviewed on Nochum Segal’s JM in the AM this morning, talking about the new KosherClasses project. As explained by Rabbi Goldberg, this project is a result of a grant received from the McDonald’s Corporation — you’ll need to listen to the interview to hear the story!

You can listen in RealAudio or MP3 format.

Which Theme?

If you’ve just arrived on this page, you are viewing it using a theme called fGala. On the right, you can choose a different one — some of us prefer “Dapit Hapon” (no, it’s not Hebrew, but Filipino!), while the first theme installed was “Pool.” Please comment with your favorite, and we’ll let the majority set the default!

Those familiar with wordpress themes are free to suggest alternatives, as well.

Design Our Logo – Win an MP3 Player!

Project Genesis needs a new logo. … and you could win a new mp3 player!

Our old logo is on the right. It was a great logo when the term Information Superhighway was popular. It depicts a road leading into a square which is both the middle of the Torah scroll whose Atzei Chayim, posts, are on each side, and the monitor of the computer whose keyboard is beneath it. At the time, Torah.org was called “Torah on the Information Superhighway,” and it all fit together nicely.

Today, the term “Information Superhighway” is old, out, passé. Torah.org may keep the stylized version of the logo, but Project Genesis needs a new logo of its own.

So rather than paying a consultant to tell you what logo you like, we’re hoping that you, our reader, will come up with something even better. You design an incredible logo, we (with help from our readers) pick the one we like best, and the winner gets an mp3 player in the mail – piece of cake!

The new logo should try to keep the Torah Scroll theme, but we’re open to other concepts. You should only use two colors. Line art is good. Send the logo in full resolution.

[logo submissions email has been removed]

The Deadline is Erev (the day before) Shavuos, June 1st.
Good Luck!

UPDATE: See here for the latest submissions.
