WHERE: Crobar, 530 W. 28th St. (10th-11th Aves.), New York City
TICKETS: Available via www.smarttix.com or 212.868.4444. Tickets range from $25 for general admission to $5,000 for VIP tables.
WHY: Channeling the electricity of the new Jewish movement, a stellar roster of Jewish artists will headline an historic concert bridging the best of Jewish pop culture with the Jewish legacy of charity.
Produced by young Jews, for young Jews (and those who love them), the first annual Jewcy Chanukah is poised to become a new holiday tradition for New Yorkers seeking something more „Jewcy‰ than dreidel-spinning contests or Matzoh Balls.
Hosted by Jewcy (www.jewcy.com), the hot-as-latkes collective leading a new wave of Jewish culture and pride, the concert will benefit Natan (www.natan.org) a philanthropic network of young Jews seeking to help transform the Jewish future by funding innovative solutions to address crucial questions of Jewish life.
