Central Conference of American Rabbis

The Challenge

When they came to YIKES, Inc. The Central Conference of American Rabbis had an out-dated site that was inefficient and constantly crashing. It was a big source of pain for them and their members. As an organization for Reform Rabbinic leadership, they provide resources for 2,100 rabbis who serve more than 1.5 million Reform Jews throughout North America, Israel, and the world.

We hired YIKES to redesign and build our complex website including a secure, members-only section as well as a very large and frequently updated employment service section. YIKES exceeded our expectations with development and design. Our members are very happy with the new look and ease of use, and our staff finds the website easy to navigate and update. Working with the YIKES team was and continues to be a pleasure, they respond quickly to any questions we have and help find solutions fast. I feel like we not only hired a website developer but found a partner in the process.

The Solution

YIKES, Inc. took tens of thousands of content entries out of Django and replatformed into WordPress using categorized posts. We built a tailor-made members-only section for their over 2,300 members allowing them to update their profile information and access unique content. YIKES developed four custom post types and an events system so members can easily find the information they need, including an extensive Placement system for Rabbis to find congregations in need of new Rabbis.
