In this episode of The JCast Journey, host Darone Ruskay does what he usually does on his other episode KVETCH. What is the issue at hand? It is the bill he got for $100 in order for the JCast Network app to remain on the App Store. Why does Apple need to charge for an app that is given to people free? Darone asks. Google only charges $25 once, why does Apple need to charge every year. And, does anyone really even use our app? Please let us know if you think that it is worth it, and if you can… consider making a donation to JCast Network to help pay all of these bills that pop up during the year, as we try to continue to provide you with useful, informative, educational and enjoyable content.
Darone has spent the past fifteen years working in the Jewish Education field, providing top-quality Jewish education to the North American community. he served as the Conference Coordinator for The Coalition for the Advancement of Jewish Education (CAJE) for many years. Since then he has worked at United Jewish Communities (UJC), as their Director of Young Leadership Cabinet Membership, at The Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS), in the Department of Institutional Advancement, and most recently as the Managing Director of The Skirball Center for Adult Jewish Learning at Temple Emanu-El. He brings his passion for Jewish Life and Education, as well as his personal interest and passion for media and technology to this new venture, and is perfectly suited to lead the JCast Network (which he might just have to call JCN as he is so used to working at institutions that use their initials.)
