Not your Bubbe’s Jewish site

Since the advent of Heeb, a wave of new media has popped up for both reverent and irreverent Jewish hipsters.
Slide 3: Jewlicious
Put together by a wide-ranging group of bloggers, Jewlicious championed a hip, engaged Jewish identity. While it covers the Middle East crises, it often does so with a hipster wit, as, for example, in the recent “Lebanon Launches Latest Offensive in Hummus War Against Israel” or “Bernie Madoff: Striking Down the Myth That Bald Old Jews Can’t Party Like Rockstars.” But their tongue-in-chic approach has not always been met with a warm embrace. Asked what has gotten them in hot water, the editors respond: “Oh golly. Posts where we had blog wars with Jewschool.com, posts that were critical of Birthright Israel, the aforementioned Conservative Judaism post... we get into hot water quite a bit I'm afraid.” [Jewlicious]
