Mi Yodeya is a question and answer site for those who base their lives on Jewish law and tradition and anyone interested in learning more. It's 100% free, no registration required.

What's a good website for asking questions about Jewish life and learning and getting crowd-sourced answers?

You might want to check out mi.yodeya.com, the Judaism site on the StackExchange network. They allow questions and even answers from anyone, but the community editing and voting process, along with the great crowd of people who tend to hand out there tends to result in excellent, well-sourced answers being posted fairly quickly for most questions.

Full disclosure: I founded mi.yodeya and am a member of Mi Yodeya.

CHABAD.ORG is a very knowledgeable and community interactive site. The Rabbis there are very accommodating and helpful, plus they have extensive knowledge of all things Jewish.

That's not really crowd-sourced, though –  HodofHod Dec 14 '12 at 1:51
I agree with @HodofHod. This seems more like a comment, as it doesn't answer the question. –  Double AA Dec 14 '12 at 3:15
You guys are both nogeya badavar. You should get a non-SE mod to make a ruling. –  Isaac Moses Dec 14 '12 at 3:26

There is an email list called Mail Jewish which discusses matters of this nature.

Send submissions/responses for mail.jewish to:


The archive site is http://www.ottmall.com/mj_ht_arch/

This is a listserv which has been in existence since the before the beginning of the internet (it goes back to the original Bell Labs days) and has dealt with all issues involving Judaism. It is a moderated list, so it is recommended that you look through the archives to see what types of things are discussed.

Also Areivim (spelling?). –  msh210 Mar 17 at 14:55

I have frequently seen such questions posted to general-purpose social media networks like Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit (particularly the Jewish corner thereof). These sites don't have the same controls for quality that Mi Yodeya does, but they can often draw large numbers of people to address a question, relatively quickly, with varying degrees of seriousness and usefulness.

Since the quality of answers should be judged without regard to other answers on the question.....have a hat ;-) –  Shokhet Dec 22 at 16:06
@Shokhet, I'm not sure what hat you think you just gave me. Thanks for the upvote, though. –  Isaac Moses Dec 22 at 16:07
I edited my comment with a link. –  Shokhet Dec 22 at 16:07
Oh, the bounty on this question was awarded already :P –  Shokhet Dec 22 at 16:08
