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 5: Guilt and Pleasure
Guilt & Pleasure, as its title might imply, marries off-the-cuff hipness with sturdy intellectual yearnings. One gets the idea that smart is the new hip. The magazine/website is produced by New York’s non-profit group Reboot and includes figures like Jonathan Safran Foer and Gary Shteyngart as part of their editorial board. The recent Death Issue included such pieces as David Rakoff’s “All The Time We Have,” about dealing with death of a therapist, and Nathaniel Deutsch’s “Herring in Heaven,” humorous bit about an afterlife for Jews.
