Dear Reader,
As you can imagine, more people are reading The Jerusalem Post than ever before. Nevertheless, traditional business models are no longer sustainable and high-quality publications, like ours, are being forced to look for new ways to keep going. Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall. We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analyses from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World.

As one of our loyal readers, we ask you to be our partner.

For $5 a month you will receive access to the following:

  • A user experience almost completely free of ads
  • Access to our Premium Section
  • Content from the award-winning Jerusalem Report and our monthly magazine to learn Hebrew - Ivrit
  • A brand new ePaper featuring the daily newspaper as it appears in print in Israel

Help us grow and continue telling Israel’s story to the world.

Thank you,

Ronit Hasin-Hochman, CEO, Jerusalem Post Group
Yaakov Katz, Editor-in-Chief

They've been around for six years, and now www.pandora.com is making a splash on the email circuit in Israel. The self described "group of musicians and music-loving technologists" came together with the idea of creating the most comprehensive analysis of music ever. The Web site, which is based in California, helps surfers compile personal radio stations. Pandora staff assembled hundreds of musical attributes, which they called "genes," into "a very large Music Genome". Pick one song and the Web site will find other melodies, harmonies, rhythms, lyrics, and arrangements similar to your pick. For example, if you're a Natalie Merchant fan, you'll find Merchant as well as The LadyBug Transistor, Carole King, and 100 Watt Smile in your radio rotation. Israeli artists, save for Useless ID, haven't quite cracked the Pandora staff's list. However, the site is open to suggestions and so a couple of emails could change all that.
