Elke Reva Sudin, one of the artists featured in the “Punk Jews” article I wrote for The Jewish Week a few months back, let me know today that she and her husband Saul are launching a unique new venture — SUDINmagazine — a magazine unifying Jewish art from all over the world.

The non-profit magazine, which will come out annually, launches this Chanukah and is fiscally sponsored by Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Also published alongside the yearly print book will be a website with “more constantly updated material, like a central place that’s not affiliated or discriminatory,” according to Sudin. They’re expecting to include a ton of video, cover art events and get people from Jewish communities around the world to contribute their thoughts and artwork, she says.

To accomplish all this, however, the Sudins are aiming to raise $5,000 to finance their project.
