About the Department of Information Technology
The Department of Information Technology (IT) was created to meet the information systems and personal computing needs of the organization but soon expanded to provide web hosting services to our affiliated synagogues. In addition to the many internal IT services the department provides, which assist our congregations indirectly, it has also focused on providing effective direct service to the synagogue via the internet.
USCJ On-line Services Initiative
Its sophisticated intranet website includes pertinent organizational information which can be viewed, downloaded and/or exchanged between the Central Office (Rapaport House), District offices, and participating Synagogue/School offices. Additionally, the Department offers free web hosting for affiliated synagogues and schools to create their own websites or utilize a pre-installed template based site that is also available at no cost.

The PC in Your Synagogue
Has your synagogue realized the administrative and financial benefits a PC can offer? Are your synagogue officers finally ready to embark on the road to computerization but they don't know exactly where to begin? Is your synagogue considering upgrading its system but they aren't sure which synagogue management software package is the best for your congregation's needs? Learn how simple the road to computerizing Yahrtzeit, Membership and Budget/Financial Data can be. Not to mention High Holiday Seating, Cemetery Plot and Fund Raising Management as well. Try new Jewish clip art or access the Torah via CD-ROM. Do not miss the opportunity to get your congregation into the 21st century.
The Department can also offer guidance and act as a liaison to the congregational leadership and/or a computer consultant acting on behalf of the individual congregation in the area of purchasing hardware and software. Contact Martin S. Kunoff, Director of the Department of Information Technology, at the USCJ office at (212) 533-7800 ext. 1134 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
