Frum: A Religious Jew
While working for NCSY (Midwest Region) circa 1998, Michael Winner decided it should
be time that modern technology is put into action. Starting with 130 NCSYers, dvrei
torah were sent out each week, with insights on the parsha with a little sense of
humour included. Each dvar torah was and still is written for everybody to read,
with or without a Jewish education. Written with a large amount of personal opinions
which tend to go against the current of today's society, subscription to the dvrei
torah increased greatly.
There are currently over 330 people subscribed to the mailing list. In 2000,
the website Frum.org was officially launched. After realizing the site needed a
face-lift, Frum.org 2.0 was launched in August of 2001.
In November of 2001, Frum.org bought BeisHamikdash.com. With Moshiach on his way,
Michael is hoping to be the official webmaster of the Beis Hamikdash. Eventually,
BeisHamikdash.com will be developed with in-depth information on the Beis Hamikdash.
