Steinhardt helps promote Jewish rock


It seems that the recent Big Apple Rocktoberfest charity fundraiser featuring Meade Welles' "hedge fund rock band" isn't the only alternative investment-pop crossover these days. As it turns out, Michael Steinhardt, the hedge fund manager known for his philanthropic efforts to promote Jewish culture, has backed a new not-for-profit website called Jewsrock.org. The website is dedicated to covering rock music created by Jewish musicians. While it is intended to seriously promote up-and-coming pop talent, the site is full of tongue-in-cheek humor, including a "Challah Fame."
