New web site for the Baha’i International Community

Baha'i News Service web site screenshotA beautiful new web site has been launched during the Festival of Ridvan by the Baha’i International Community. In addition, a newly revamped news web site has been launched at Here is a direct quote from the press release:

The Bahá’í World News Service has launched a new Web site that includes an expanded home page and a section designed to meet the needs of journalists. The address remains the same –

The section for media representatives includes brief descriptions of the Bahá’í Faith and its beliefs and history; a list of Houses of Worship; a style guide with spellings and definitions of names and terms; photos for downloading; and contact information.

All the pages for BWNS news, features, photos, slide shows, and video have been redesigned.

The makeover is the first stage in a plan to redo all the sections on, the international Web site of the Bahá’í Faith. The new home page for that site also appears today.

Also, nine countries have been added to a page that provides links to Web sites and contact information for many of the national Bahá’í communities around the world. The goal is to have a link for every country.

All the Web sites are maintained by the Bahá’í International Community’s Office of Public Information at the Bahá’í World Centre in Haifa.

Job well done to the Office of Public Information Internet team!
