Boulder Jewish News is now an affiliate of Modern Tribe. We found their on-line site two years ago, when No Limit Texas Dreidel (NLTD) first came out. We are fortunate to count several poker fiends among the machatunim,* and dreidel fiends among the kinder, so we thought it would bridge generations, as it were. We highly recommend the deluxe edition for large groups, and make sure you stock up on boxes of gelt (poker chips work too).
Besides inventing NLTD, ModernTribe is the exclusive retailer of Spinagogue, the official spinning stadium of Major League Dreidel (who knew?), and the site now stocks over 500 items of Judaica and gifts. “We are a new kind of Judaica store and Jewish gifts shop for people with progressive minds, spirits, & style.” As seen in the New York Times, two of their menorahs were chosen by Jonathan Adler to Light The Nights: the Sabra menorah and Woodland Linking menorah (great article and photos).
ModernTribe works with Israeli and Jewish designers to bring innovative products to market, and to supply style-conscious shoppers with design-forward Jewish ritual items, Israeli designer personal accessories, apparel, and more. It recently acquired PopJudaica.com.“With more novelty oriented items and an emphasis on funny Jewish gifts, Pop Judaica fills a merchandizing space we don’t already cover, “ explains Jennie Rivlin Roberts, founder of ModernTribe and inventor of No Limit Texas Dreidel. “Plus, Pop Judaica is a great brand! It was a pioneer in the online Jewish gifts space, one of the first to bring the world funny Jewish t-shirts and novelty Judaica.” “The two sites have always made a great pair,” says Sara Schwimmer Marcus, founder of Pop Judaica. “Jennie is the most qualified mamaleh to take on my baby and I know she’s going to take Pop Judaica to the next level.” Sara is now concentrating on her newest venture, JewishWeddingNetwork.com, an online resource for modern Jewish brides. ModernTribe and Jewish Wedding Network will continue to collaborate to bring the best wedding resources and products to Jewish brides. (from PRWeb)

*What’s machatunim? There is no English equivalent. When two people are married, his parents’ machatunim are her parents and vise/versa. Used in reference to Bill and Hillary Clinton this week in Jewish Daily Forward (“For Chelsea Clinton, a Jewish Fiancé“): “…Mezvinsky’s parents…appear to have plenty in common with their future machatunim.”
