The 20 Best Conservative Synagogue Websites 2016

In the time since my original post 5 years ago, web design has changed considerably, particularly with the rise of responsive (mobile-friendly) design. Synagogue website designs also emphasize different things compared to back then, such as full-widths, large & dynamic photos, flat colors, clear calls-to-action, etc.

Synagogue Websites Shouldn’t Use Print Flyers as Images to Promote Events

Why should synagogues not post event flyers as images on their websites? Event flyers are meant for print purposes only – a very different medium than the web. They just don’t work on synagogue websites – it’s an outdated practice that does more harm than good.

What Makes a Synagogue Website Outdated?

I don’t believe that the need for a website and what it contains are dependent on the size of the synagogue. Synagogues need to view themselves as professional organizations running a professional website presence, and as such need to have a better way of assigning responsibility for it.

Security Considerations for Your Synagogue’s Website

Synagogue security is always a concern to community leaders, and an important part of that preparation is cyber-security. Synagogues are responsible for keeping their online identity safe, so those responsible for the administration of their synagogue’s website should take appropriate steps to reduce the risk of something malicious happening to it.
