New "All Sections" flyout

Do you sometimes like to see all of your options all at once? Do menus not work for you?

We have heard this suggestion from our visitors, and have implemented a new feature that addresses this need. On the left navigation you will now find an "All Sections" flyout layer with links to all the main and subsections of Chabad.org.

Now you can see how big Chabad.org really is!

Related to this change, we have also implemented a nice sized search box on the top right side of the site, in the banner. This should another level of ease to help you find what you need.

And finally, we have restored our popular Ask the Rabbi link to the top-right of the site.

Spanish version of Chabad.org launched!

We are pleased to release a Spanish version of Chabad.org, http://www.jabad.com/! This new language version joins French, Hebrew and German in the Chabad.org family of sites and continues our initiative to reach out to as many people as possible is their native language.

This site has its own editor, and contains many articles not found in other language versions of Chabad.org.

We hope you enjoy!

A new section on Chabad.org is: Israel

For a Jew, the land of Israel is more than a place. It is a body for the soul of a people. As Yom Kippur is to the Jewish year, so Israel is to the Jewish space: a place to find where you began, where you belong and what you truly are. A Jew does not travel to Israel, s/he returns there.

What is this anomaly of the Jewish People and its land, this eternal bond that almost 2,000 years of exile has failed to sever? Discover—and uncover—where Israel is in the heart of a Jew, and where the Jewishness is within the heart of Israel.

This section has videos, images, history, interesting facts, insight, and visiting information for many places around the Land of Israel.

Get it all at www.chabad.org/Israel
