Client: Shavei Israel

Completed: March, 2017
Shavei Israel is a unique non-profit organization dedicated to assisting descendants of Jews and the Lost Tribes of Israel to reclaim their roots. Active worldwide, Shavei Israel is the starting point for anyone with Jewish heritage or ancestry who yearns to return.
One of their main branches of support is their shop, where books and products are produced with love for their communities. Typiary undertook a comprehensive project to completely re-design the store’s online presence and underlying architecture – while at the same time updating Shavei’s main website and five blogs.
Planning and logistics were a necessity to meet their goals. A full-featured WooCommerce system was built into Shavei’s new online store (inner page pictured, above right), translated into three languages and accepting any currency. A premium donation system was implemented to be attractive, streamlined, and capable of handling multiple campaigns or free products. A price slider can filter your selections in addition to the categories and tags.
Typiary was able to perform maintenance, train staff, and follow up on all proposals for over a year. We migrated hosting and transferred DNS to new sub-domains with SSL certifcates on
our recommended hosting platform, Flywheel.
Typiary completely re-designed their main website with a customized theme and a restructured digital architecture. Five new blogs were released with a consistent style; Shavei’s content is displayed in seven languages, easily switched with the world’s leading multi- language extension. Shavei’s blogs were optimized to make full use of revised content production work ows and Mailchimp integrations.
