Meet Lisa Klug, Buy “Cool Jew”, win a Video iPod
Posted by Oyster on November 13, 2008
Come tomorrow, November 13 to the intergalactic launch party for “Cool Jew: The Ultimate Guide for Every Member of the Tribe“, the latest Jewish hipsterdom tome to come out from the most prolific scribes of the tribe. There will even be a raffle to win a Video iPod from Oyster himself. Here’s the 411:
Cool Jew does for gefilte fish and matzah balls what The Official Preppy Handbook did for plaid and polo – only with much more chutzpah. With 250 pages and nearly 400 images, this bible of all things hip and Jewish covers Hebraic matters from womb to tomb, finally putting an end to Christmas tree envy.
Come out for an extravagant one-night festival of Jewish creativity combining a book signing, film screenings, a panel discussion with the local artists and innovators featured in the book, a dance party with live music and spoken-word performances and a DJ spinning contemporary Jewish rap, klezmer punk and hip hop tunes. A charity raffle with hip Jew swag will support Israeli victims of terror, kosher refreshments will be on tap and an unprecedeted Heebster marketplace will include books, T-shirts, music and more.
The evening’s lineup includes:
A panel discussion featuring Sarah Lefton (g-dcast.com), Jeremy Cowan (He’Brew, The Chosen Beer), indie filmmakers Tiffany Shlain (The Tribe) and Yoav Potash (Minute Matrimony/Life Sentence) and the San Francisco Giants’ Rally Rabbi, aka Yosef Langer moderated by award-winning journalist Lisa Alcalay Klug; screenings of Shlain’s and Potash’s award-winning films; performances by Hip Hop Shabbat rapper and recording artist Yo-Natan Gutstadt, the Shivat Zion Band and puppetiere Jen Miriam Kantor.
Presented by The Hub at the JCCSF
Presented in partnership with Birthright Israel NEXT & Bay Area Tribe, Second Saturdays at the Cellar, Young Adult Community at Congregation Emanu El, SF Chabad, He’Brew Beer, Thou Shalt Snack, FunkyFrum.com, Jewlicious Festivals
