When we toast ‘L’Chaim’ (to life), we mean just that.
Not to toot our own horn or anything, but our staffers are a pretty awesome. And turns out, others agree. Yesterday, Jewcy named Forward web editor and Sisterhood blog founder, Gabrielle Birkner, as part of the Big Jewcy: “A list of 100 people that we think deserve to be recognized, like The Forward 50, Time 100, or the New Yorker 20 under 40, but with a special Jewcy twist,” says the website.
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.
When we at the Forward run articles the world listens carefully. When we choose not to run pieces, apparently, the world jumps to attention and blogs it.
