Next week, you’ll notice lots of things a-buzzing here at Jewcy. Jewcy is a media partner for the J Street conference in Washington, DC from October 25-28. We’ll be webcasting select keynote sessions starting with the opening plenary Sunday, October 25 at 7:00 PM EST, so check back on the site.

Not only will Jewcy staffers be attending and blogging/tweeting about our experiences, but we want you – yes, you – to get involved. We’re inviting conference attendees to blog and upload video live with their thoughts and reactions, but if you’re not attending and want to play along at home, you can join the conversation by commenting on posts or by writing in your user blog. More on that below.

It’s a given that not everyone who visits this site agrees on American policy regarding Israel, the complexities of Israeli politics and life, etc. etc. We don’t even all agree here at Jewcy (fancy that), but we do hope to have some serious and relevant conversations about Israel next week and beyond. We welcome respectful debate.

And now – the FAQ:

How do I create a profile?

If you don’t already have a profile, it’s super easy to create one. Just click here and follow the instructions. Personalize as much as you want.

What’s a user blog, and how do I write one?

Anyone who has a profile on Jewcy can write a post in their user blog. Once you’ve logged in, you can click this link and blog your heart out. You can also get to this page by going to the top of the page, clicking on the tab that says "Do Stuff" and then selecting "Write In Your User Blog" from the list.

Why bother?

Your blog posts will be featured on Jewcy’s main User Blog page alongside conference attendees’ posts, which can also be seen on JStreet.org. You can share the posts with your friends on Facebook or Twitter with just two quick clicks. Moreover, keep in mind:

  • You’re smart and have many valid thoughts to share.
  • Jewcy and JStreet get a lot of traffic. Hundreds of thousands of people around the world are looking at these sites, and you can add your unique and valuable perspective to the conversation about Israel.

See you on Sunday!
