So even as technology continues to advance—and we perhaps gain the ability to beam music directly into our brainstems—these are the 200 albums from the 2000 s that we will still have on repeat. Like many of the best bands of the decade (Animal Collective, LCD Soundsystem, the Knife), Deerhoof makes immediately identifiable music with seemingly scores of imitators—yet, nobody else has managed to produce anything quite like “Sealed With a Kiss,” or the Ravel-esque “The Forbidden Fruits.”

A new L.A.-based film foundation called Jewish Story Partners launched Thursday with the goal of expanding the range of stories reflecting Jewish lives, with Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw backing the organization.

Jewish Story Partners supports independent films that give fresh, nuanced perspectives to tell a diverse spectrum of Jewish experiences, histories and cultures, and the group was also founded with the mission of addressing the glaring gap of funding in Jewish stories. The film foundation hopes to explore untold narratives and re-cast familiar ones, preserve historical memory, surprise with new ideas, challenge established positions, confront difficult realities and breach artistic frontiers.

"There is nothing like storytelling to foster connections and help us understand life's deepest truths," Spielberg and Capshaw said in a joint statement. "We are especially proud to help establish this initiative — which will make visible a fuller range of Jewish voices, identities, experiences, and perspectives — at a time when social divisions run painfully deep and mainstream depictions too often fail to reflect the Jewish community in all its complexity. We hope that JSP projects will long be a source of meaning within the Jewish community and beyond."

The Best Books to Give Dad on Father's Day

  The Best Books to Give Dad on Father's Day There's a read for everybody.

Whether it was the departure of longtime potentiator Blixa Bargeld or merely the singer approaching 50, something reignited a fire under Cave and his protean partners the Bad Seeds in the mid- 2000 s that smolders to this day. But even taking into account the subsequent highs of Grinderman and Dig!!! And perhaps most importantly, this was his first album not produced by Mannie Fresh, and he had the good sense to replace Fresh’s punchy ADD electro with swampy, primordial thuds that gave his jokes urgency and force. –Tom Breihan.

This list of the decade’s 100 best albums includes the work of rock revivalists (the Strokes, the White Stripes), dance floor visionaries (M.I.A., LCD Soundsystem), hip-hop icons (Jay-Z, Eminem, Kanye West) and old standbys like Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan and U2, who reinvented their sound without losing touch with what made them living. This list is not just an argument in favor of the enduring appeal of the album format, but a compelling case that some of the best music of all time came out between 2000 and 2009.

Jewish Story Partners is launching in a moment of rising anti-Semitism in America and around the world, but also as Jewish people are grappling with their "whiteness." An estimated 15% of American Jews are considered Jews of color, and Mizrachi and Sephardi people make up more than half of Israel's Jewish population. The goal of JSP is to expand the Jewish story and embrace its own range of diversity, welcoming more voices and telling stories that are not always redemptive or flattering.

In 2021, the organization will provide $500,000 in grants to U.S.-based feature length documentaries. And in the coming years, JSP has plans to increase its funding and expand eligibility to encompass international filmmakers and fiction projects. The inaugural round of grantees are soon to be announced and submissions are now open for a second funding round, with applications due on July 1, 2021. Filmmakers may learn more about those grants here.

"We're thrilled to create something that is both additive to the independent film community as well as critical to the Jewish arts and culture landscape.

Founding board members for Jewish Story Partners include film producer Dan Cogan, entertainment attorney Victoria Cook, film impact executive Wendy Cohen, political and equity strategist Ginna Green, writer, producer and showrunner Marta Kauffman, non-profit executive director and television executive Simon Kilmurry, executive producer Nancy Spielberg and historian and professor of modern Jewish culture Sarah Abrevaya Stein.

A matching gift was received from lead partner Maimonides Fund, with additional support from Jim Joseph Foundation.

"We believe strongly in the power of storytelling to shape how people see the world and themselves," Mark Charendoff, president of Maimonides Fund, said in a statement. "We are excited to support JSP's mission of getting more films out there that offer surprising and nuanced perspectives on Jewish life, and showcase the richness and diversity of the Jewish experience."

"Education and connection are the core engine driving everything we support at the Jim Joseph Foundation," Barry Finestone, president and CEO of the Jim Joseph Foundation, said in a statement. "We're proud to support Jewish Story Partners because we view film as an electric, yet under-utilized conduit for Jewish education — translating knowledge into a medium that resonates with the next generation."

"The range of films championed by Jewish Story Partners will expand our collective awareness of what it means to be Jewish today, and in the process help build a world where we all belong, no matter our religion, where we come from, or what we look like," South Carolina-based partner and chief strategy officer at Uprise and Jewish Story Partners Board member Ginna Green said in a statement.
