The Word Mavens



Joyce and Ellen are long-time friends and colleagues, and I was happy to bring their site up to speed with a whole new layout and set of functionality features, while keeping the same feel their fans are used to. Together they’ve written hundreds of definitions of Jewish words, a second edition of their Dictionary, 751 tweets, dozens of op-ed essays, and more than 100 blog posts on topics ranging from knipples and knishes to year-round shvitzing and the crazy Jewish calendar.

They dispense advice to world leaders, their children and anybody who will listen. And this site was created to help that endeavor!
