JDub, a non-profit Jewish music label and event company that signed such musical acts as Matisyahu and Balkan Beat Box, has acquired Jewcy.com, a three-year-old site that hosts blogs and articles targeted at Jewish young adults. The Jewish Federation of Los Angeles is committed to funding Jewcy, and Repair the World — a new Jewish non-profit promoting service — will be a “strategic content partner” for Jewcy, according to a press release about the JDub acquisition.
In that release JDub’s Chief Operating Officer Jacob Harris said, “Jewcy’s content is similar to our music catalogue in that it proudly presents very diverse Jewish thoughts, ideas, challenges and struggles in a quality and relevant fashion.”
A redesign of Jewcy.com is to be completed next year.
