Jewish Lexicon Project


The Jewish English Lexicon is the flagship of a multi-site project that allows the public to submit words from their culture that have a Jewish origin. The CakePHP4-based site has a fully built out moderators backend, Ajax callbacks for form validation and uses the MediaStream Recording JavaScript API to have users record the pronunciations of the words that are included on the site.

The project is in collaboration with the Hebrew Union College and various other partners and supporters. I have been the sole developer on the site for almost 10 years.
