Jewlicious at the Beach v2.0

The great minds behind and 'Jewlicious at the Beach' have done it again:

The second annual Jewish student gathering Jewlicious @ The Beach.2 — a hip, eclectic conference on Jewish life and identity — is February 17-20, 2006. Hundreds of Jewish college students are expected in Long Beach, CA from colleges and universities all over the Western states.

Jewlicious @ The Beach.2, or JTB2, will feature presenters and musicians from across the USA, Canada, and Israel. Some of the best and brightest emerging Jewish talents will be part of the weekend festivities that include explorations of modern art, fashion, henna tattooing, print and online journalism, improv, activism, wine-making, bronze-casting, podcasting, Indie music, spoken-word, unorganized religion, and blogging —all in a passionate display of the vitality and diversity of Jewish life.

Whether we are Ashkenazim or Sephardim; atheists, agnostics, or believers; nerds, jocks, geeks or hipsters, we are all members of the same community. The chance to learn from and about each other is a rare and precious opportunity to revel in our shared culture and history.

Weekend highlights include folk-jazz café, master challah baking, Friday Night Feast, Kiddush wine tasting, iMac Saloon, iPod listening lounge, WIFI, concerts, films, poker tournament, parties, dramatic Torah reading, fashion show and bazaar.

As of right now, Rav Shmuel, DJ SoCalled, and the Makkabees are billed to perform. I don't know, it almost sounds too good to be true. Check out the podcasts, amazing. Click here to join the JTB2 listserv. Earlybird cost of weekend is $36. More info to come.
