Synagogue Websites and Online Donations: Benefits and Considerations

So when it comes to one of the more important aspects of modern synagogue life – financially supporting the synagogue through donations – why should a synagogue’s congregants not be able to do that online as well?

Who Should Be Responsible for Managing a Synagogue’s Website?

Who is primarily responsible for managing the synagogue’s website? Is it volunteers or laypeople, who are often passionate about technology and want to give their time by working on the website? Is it the professional staff, who are often over-burdened with other responsibilities? Is it an outside website firm altogether? Or is it some combination of all three?

What Makes a Synagogue Website Outdated?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.
