Hi, it’s Joshua Hoffman, the founder of Future of Jewish and NEGEV, with a major announcement!
Version 2.0 of NEGEV is live, and it features My Feed, where you can fully personalize your Jewish and Israel experience, according to your passions and interests!
Here’s the backstory:
When we launched NEGEV in April 2023, we strategically decided to NOT use algorithms to filter the kinds of content you see in our app.
Algorithms are great for social media platforms, but NOT for Judaism and Israel, because algorithms are meant to filter out things.
When you filter out parts of Judaism and Israel, something becomes distorted about them, and you can’t get the most value from Judaism and Israel!
Now, with My Feed, you can fully personalize your Jewish and Israel experience, according to your passions and interests.
Don’t have the NEGEV app? Learn more about us here. And download our apps to get started for free!
This is only the beginning of the new-look NEGEV app! We’re also working on the following features, which we plan to launch in the coming weeks:
Journeys — Dive wide and deep into various aspects of Judaism, such as daily rituals, eating Jewishly, Shabbat, literature, Jewish holidays, and more!
Computer Access — Soon you’ll be able to access NEGEV on your computer or laptop, in addition to our existing smartphone and tablet apps!
My Locations — Immerse yourself in the wide world of Judaism through location-based filters, such as continents, countries, states, and cities!
