Creating a KehilaLinks Site

This annual class is for people who want to learn how to create a web site for their ancestral town on KehilaLinks. All you need to participate is some basic computer skills, a computer, and a few spare hours a week for 6 weeks. By the end of the class you will have a complete site that you can upload to KehilaLinks and continue to update on your own.

The class is entirely on-line. Each week the instructor posts one or two lessons for you to do on your own time. Students ask questions through an on-line discussion forum. In each lesson you will refine your site, adding more and more features.

The class uses a free, simple-to-use web page editor program that runs on both PCs (all recent versions of Windows) and Macs (OSX 10.2 or later).


Before you enroll, check the KehilaLinks Directory ( to make sure that somebody has not already created a site for your town. If your town is not in the directory, please read the KehilaLinks Project Policy (, and if you agree to abide by them, Reserve Your Site (

Class tuition is $36 (this is not one of the free classes for Value Added JewishGen donors). You can pay online by clicking on the Enroll Link. If you have any questions, please email the instructor, Mark Heckman
