Celebrate You and Get Cool Jew!

It's the first day of Chanukah and we're proud to announce the first winner of EIGHT DAYS OF GIVEAWAYS of an autographed copy of Cool Jew is Yoni Reinharz of the Twin Cities. Turns out, Yoni is a musician who rapped on the song "Beat Box" on Matisyahu's debut album "Live at Stubbs." The New York Times called him a "politically conscious, culturally Jewish rapper." We didn't know any of that when he won. Naturally, we love it... Mazal tov, Yoni!

More News:

Cool Jew remains in the Top Ten on Amazon's bestseller list for humor/religion titles. Today it's No. 6. It's also No. 13 on the Judaism bestseller's list.

Cool Jew is No. 45 at Virgin Mega Stores among all their books!

And Cool Jew is a bestseller at Borders Bookstore in the Century City Mall in LA.
