Jewish hipsters: the new bubble

menorah.jpgLos Angeles is home to many bubbles: the real estate bubble, of course, but also the jeans bubble, the smoothie bubble, the media blog bubble, and, I would argue, perhaps a smarmy self-contentment bubble. Anyway, for all you bubble watchers out there, here’s a new one to look out for: hipster jews. From The Jewish Week:

No sooner had Hip Judaism’s bold and brassy dance parties, T-shirts, magazines, concerts, comedy shows, blogs, and open mics attracted widescale attention in the media and pop culture — “Jews have all the fun,” declared Katherine Pushkar in Saturday’s New York Post — than the inevitable backlash set in.

Although it’s worth noting that LA might be pre-bubble on this issue, since a quick glance at the Jewish Journal will tell you that here in SoCal, Jewish square trumps Jewish hip. So who knows if we’re even ready for a backlash.

Anyway, something to ponder/kvetch about.
