If you've randomly stumbled upon this entry, I'm trying to start the Jewish Etsy team. This is the e-equivalent to holding a first meeting in my living room for lack of our own space.
Ok, let's get this party started. As soon as we have a name, I will make a blog on blogger with that name and we will move all communications there. The three proposed names are in the poll on the right. Please vote! If you have another name you want added to the poll, leave it in the comments and I will put it in ASAP. If you want to make a case for a particular name, you can leave that in the comments, too.
As for our team purpose/mission statement, here's what it looks like right now. Comment or convo me with any changes, additions or concerns. If I knew how to make this a wiki, I would.
Our team purpose is to promote Jewish community, Jewish art, and things for the Jewish holidays on Etsy. We will work to bring current Etsians into our shop as well as encouraging the greater Jewish community to shop on Etsy.If anyone else wants to be a leader of this team, let me know. I have NO intentions of being a dictator here and the only reason I'm doing this right now is to streamline the process and get it going, so please say something if you have other ideas and opinions and/or want to take over or do things on any small or large scale!
This street team will be open to anyone who has an interest in Judaism or in Jewish culture, art, or crafts, whether or not they themselves are Jewish. It will also be open to people who are Jewish or have an interest in being part of a Jewish crafting community regardless of whether or not the items in their Etsy shop would be classified as Judaica.
