When Tomer Sidi Shalom was a kid growing up in Holon, Israel, he was fascinated by the larger-than-life figures he watched on TV, who drop kicked and body slammed their opponents, as thousands of fans went nuts. The WWE wrestlers who were featured on Israeli television were his heroes, as were the Mexican grapplers who appeared on the World Wrestling Council (CMLL) circuit and who dressed in masks and colourful costumes that made them look like super heroes.
If 2016 was a big year for UJA’s annual campaign, the current one could be even bigger. Last year – in what was billed as the Centennial Campaign, to mark the UJA Federation of Greater Toronto’s 100th anniversary – the organization raised around $60 million in unrestricted gifts, targeted supplementary giving and corporate donations. This year, it expects to do even better with Campaign 2017.
The shuls are alive with the sound of music – at least that’s the case for several Toronto-area places of worship that say their musical services enhance the spiritual experience of congregants, bring them closer to God and attract people who might otherwise give prayer a pass. Solel Congregation is an established fixture in Mississauga, Ont., that offers its members a musical experience that its rabbi, Audrey Pollack, believes helps elevate their spiritual connection to God.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
