Jewish Libertarians at PorcFest 2022

Its been awhile since the last blog post, and awhile since the last PorcFest post. Between being too busy and too lazy, I didnt get around to it the past few years, but Ive been determined to get something out again, so here we are. And what a PorcFest it was. From our humble beginnings TEN(!) years ago as a Facebook page and a WordPress-domained blog, Jewish Libertarians has grown to host a Shabbat get together at this annual gathering of libertarians in the White Mountains. And what started as a small potluck service is now in its second year as a Kosher Kookout. On top of that, this is the first year that had several Jewish events!

A Website, FINALLY

New Logo and Mascot, a hedgehog

I founded Jewish Libertarians as a Facebook page in September 2012 or so, but have long wanted an actual domain. Well, I finally got it together and imported the old blog to here. That site will no longer be updated. Instead, all new posts will be here. Over the next days and weeks, I will be customizing and upgrading the website to look like the old blog, and also improve it a bit. Things have come a long way over the past near decade.

COMING SOON: A new logo and merchandise!

The wait is finally almost over.
For years, I have used someone elses design and while I am against intellectual property, I have always felt bad about that and wanted a new logo for the organization and merchandise. While the virus hysteria has me in a more productive mode, I have commissioned two artists to help design new logos. This will have a desert hedgehog (קיפוד) as the basis, like the American porcupine logo. I will take that design and make many different things with it depending on use.
Shirts and stickers are planned, and I will expand from there. These should be ready by end of June or mid July. PorcFest is coming up (post soon about that) end of June, so after that. I will have everything printed and stored “in house” to keep costs down for now. Shirts will be $10-20 depending on what I can get. Stickers I dont know yet. All profits will go to the organization minus a small commission to me for the time and labor.
Stay tuned!
PS: More big news coming soon, but I cant say yet.
