Jewish culture and history are full of fascinating, obscure, and amazing treasures. Some of them have been buried for thousands of years. Others are popping up in Broadway musicals, musty bookstores, and around the Internet as YouTube sensations. Jewniverse discovers them and sends you the scoop.
Jewniverse features extraordinary, inspirational, forgotten, and just-plain-strange dispatches from Jewish culture, tradition, and history. Yiddish workout videos? Dr. Seuss’s political cartoons? Novels about Jewish mail-order brides in the American Old West? You’ll find all these and more as you delve into the sometimes quirky, always interesting, and infinitely expanding Jewniverse.
Jewniverse is a unique and accessible way to infuse your life with a dose of Jewish culture, no matter your background. Step into the Jewniverse: You never know what you’ll find.
Jewniverse received seed funding from The Manuel D. and Rhoda Mayerson Foundation and launched in the fall of 2010 as a daily eletter. To receive Jewniverse in your inbox, sign up here.
