               o Small paper tries to be scrupulously fair to all parts
                 of the political and religious spectrum; editor
                 militates against "virulent rhetoric," whether of the
                 left or right. Covers local, national, international
                 news and the arts, although space is often limited.
                 Unlike many Jewish newspapers, it welcomes good poetry
                 (not doggerel) and occasional fiction, as well as
                 essays, with a Jewish center.

               o Sh'ma Online is a moderated discussion group sponsored
                 by Sh'ma magazine. It is dedicated to fostering
                 pluralism and an open exchange of ideas among
                 individuals with often divergent beliefs, as well as
                 exploring the frontiers of Judaism for the 21st century.
                 List participants need not be magazine subscribers.
                 While many discussions may be grounded in articles which
                 appear in the magazine, other discussions may be more
                 freewheeling and ultimately serve as grist for future
                 magazine topics.
