Relaunched in 2003, the JBooks website is designed as a place where people can share information about books of Jewish interest. On their website, visitors can look through reviews of Jewish books written by authors, journalists, and critics. Users can also read profiles of notable authors and check out interviews with quite a range of writers. In the "From Our Pages" section on the homepage, visitors can read pieces that include "Reading the rebel rabbi" and Robert Pinsky's musings on the life of the biblical David. Also, there's information about children's books here, and a special set of video profiles. Finally, the "Secular Culture & Ideas" area features videos and essays on topics like Passover, Jewish cooking, and Yiddish theater in Europe.
