Heeb: The Musical…(Issue)

Depending on whether you love Heeb, or hate Heeb (and people generally feel only one way or the other), you might have attended last night’s Brooklyn launch party for Heeb’s Music Issue and have already devoured its glossy pages of irreverence and pics of cute hipsters.  You might …

A competition I would lose.

Not another Jewblog…

Sure, we’re about a decade behind the curve. But after an aborted stab at the Jewblog market two years ago (does anybody know how to take down old blogspot blogs with long-forgotten passwords?), New Voices is excited to present a brand new blog with a brand new sense of mission. Here’s …
