About Ariga

Ariga sounds Italian. It's not. Nor is it Greek, Phoenician or Turkish. It is a Hebrew word meaning weave, in other words, what we all try to do on the web.

The site was opened to the public in mid 1995 as an experimental web-publishing platform, the first web-based source of news from Israel, emphasizing the peace process, but including poetry, painting and other subjects of interest. Ariga now mainly carries information from pro-peace and human rights groups in Israel and Palestine. It is an open platform, unaffiliated with any specific group, solely owned, operated and edited by Robert Rosenberg.

At various times Ariga has been an hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, bi-monthly and quarterly, depending on how much time is available to deal with it. Archives of past Ariga front pages can be found here

The site is organized into three main sections -- Business, which as of January 1 2000 leads to Koldoon.com, the world's fastest growing database of startup technology companies and their investors; Peace, both on-site and off-site links to information resources about peace efforts for the Middle East; and Pleasure, arts, letters and entertainment.

Among the most popular sections in Ariga are:

The Yiddish page is an 850+ glossary of Yiddish phrases transliterated into English -- with translations. The Writers Guild of America chose it as the site they recommend to American writers who need a Yiddish phrase. You can scroll the full list for a specific term or word, or use you search button to find a word or phrase on the page.

The Human Rights and Peace Groups section where youc an find information about Israeli and Palestinian peace and human rights groups. For other peace group related links, click into the PeaceLinks page
