The Big Jewcy

The Big Jewcy celebrates people doing amazing things. It’s a list of 100 people that we think deserve to be recognized, like The Forward 50, Time 100, or the New Yorker 20 under 40, but with a special Jewcy twist. Starting today (June 7th) we will announce 10 names every day, leading up to our Big Jewcy bash at Bowery Electric on June 17th.  If you missed a few posts, don’t worry, you can check back right here every day for updates, and maybe next year you’ll be a Big Jewcy.
