Jewlicious got major play from the JTA for Jewlicious @ The Beach 2. A fawning article about the event was accompanied by several other pieces focusing on youth and Jewish identity including one on Matzat advisors Steven M. Cohen & Ari Kelman’s soon-to-come research paper (and also includes the Brandeis Judaism-on-campus study we reported recently), another on the challenge of reaching European Jewish youth, yet another on Jewdas’ Punk Purim (which, apparently CK, who wasn’t even at the party, took a strong disliking to), and finally one about a struggling Jewish youth magazine in Argentina.
In related news, Cox News Service released their own story about “hipster” Judaism, both a day late and a dollar short.
I look forward to your comments…
