From the Stacks: Heeb

It's time once again for Heeb's Chosen Issue (Fall 2007), when the sassy Jewish mag's editors ordain their favorite players in arts and entertainment. It's also, as editorial director Rebecca Wiener writes, "a great excuse to unleash our OCD tendencies" with a particularly careful selection process. If that doesn't scare you away, check out the issue's goods, among them an engaging profile of Joan Rivers, who is returning to her roots in the Manhattan comedy clubs, and a short piece about Dmitry, a 33-year-old Ukrainian-born Jew who finally goes ahead with his bris nearly 20 years after emigrating to the United States. The issue also features coverboy Jonah Hill (Superbad) and the Heeb Hundred, a roster of 100 up-and-coming members of the tribe. The print edition includes just 20 of the notably hip crowd, but you can assess the rest of the lineup at —Eric Kelsey
