Krewe du Jieux is a free spirited parade organization committed to deflating the stereotypes that have historically been aimed at the Jewish people. Through laughter, satire and holy intentions, our goal is to empower Jieuxs to co-opt these negative stereotypes, thereby eradicating them in our own minds and in the minds of others. Established in 1996 as the first Jewish Mardi Gras krewe in New Orleans, Krewe du Jieux sponsors a variety of events throughout the year in addition to our annual Mardi Gras parade, including second-line parades for Chanukah and Purim, a Passover KreweSeder, a Rosh/Kippur Apology Party and the wonderfully irreverent “Running of the Jieuxs” second-line parade following our annual coronation of royalty.
