The Jewish Funeral, Burial, and Mourning website (continuously operating since 1998), migrated at the start of 2019 from Drupal to WordPress, requiring a significant overhaul and rewrite of content. This page acknowledges those who made this possible.

  • David Zinner – worked with Rick to edit and enhance web page content, ensure consistency and an ergonomical presentation
  • Kerry Swartz – mastered WordPress, designed templates and new look/feel of website home page and interior pages, developed and integrated registration for conferences and courses
  • Rabbi Joe Blair – managed and directed the blog content and (with Kerry) how media pages are integrated with the new site
  • Cynthia Whitehead – see below
