New Project: 50 States—50 Jews!

If you're looking at our little website, then chances are you've noticed something new in the top left.

Yes, we're doing a Kickstarter for our new book, 50 States—50 Jews.

For a long time now we've wanted to change things up, do a little more than the site, and this is what has come of it. The book is in progress as we speak (type) and you can see some samples of our work on the page right now!

When finished, the book will have a NEW profile for every state (including some re-do's on already profiled peeps like Bob Dylan and Jean Lafitte), plus Jewish historical facts, funny stories, and...well, the same kind of stuff you expect from us here. Except in book form.

What does this mean for you? Well, more of that content we all know and love. And, because it's a Kickstarter, there are lots of cool opportunities awaiting you, including the chance to have us instantly write the suggestion of your choice (Josh Satin fans rejoice!), get your very own Jew Score, or even write a profile yourself for the site! Subject to editorial approval, of course. But still! You can write for! And if that isn't the fulfillment of a lifelong dream, we don't know what is.

In any case, we'll provide updates in this space as they happen. Most of all, we just want you to know that we wouldn't, couldn't, be doing this without you—our faithful readers. Your support over the years inspired us that something like 50 States—50 Jews could be done.

We're so excited for this project. We just can't wait to share it with you!
