jQuery: Coding Efficiently Help


I am using this jquery plugin to pull content from an rss feed into my site: https://github.com/sdepold/jquery-rss. Works great. No issues there. However, I would like to have more than one of these little widgets on my site. I don't want to replicate the full code every time when the only thing that is changing is the url. All other options will remain as they are. I have tried to modify the origin plugin file, but cannot seem to over ride the default formats. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  var j=jQuery.noConflict();
    j(document).ready(function() { 
      jQuery(function($) {
            .rss("http://feeds.feedburner.com/patheos/Ukoy", {
              limit: 3,
             layoutTemplate: '<div class="destroy"></div>',
             entryTemplate: '<li class="view mix span4" data-name="{title}" data-age="{date}"><div  class="view-back"><a class="feedLink" href="#"><img src="/assets/greenarrow.png"/><div class="feedBody hidden">{body}{url}</div></a></div><div class="front"><div class="date">{prettyDate}</div><div class="title">{title}</div></div></li>',
             tokens: {
                prettyDate: function(entry, tokens) {
                return moment(tokens.date).format("DD <br> ddd")
