One of two Judaica stores in midtown Manhattan will be gone by the end of the month, a victim of the soft economy and stiff rents on a busy side street.

David Veseley, owner of Manhattan Judaica, hopes to clear his inventory by the High Holidays.

Commentary Kicks A Dead Horse: A Eulogy for JDub Records

For the young, artistic, mostly Brooklyn-based set, JDub Records was a boon. Founded in 2001, it announced this week that it was shutting its doors because of money problems.  It's a real loss to the Jewish community. To be sure, the closest JDub ever got to mainstream success was by being an early booster of Matisyahu, though if you live in New York, or L.A., Miami, or San Francisco, they've brought lesser-known (though I think much better) musicians to your town that most others probably never heard of.
