HanukKAPOW!: Judaism in Comic Books
with Rabbi Brandon Bernstein
Director of Jewish Learning at Moishe House

on Zoom and Facebook Live, Monday, December 14, 7:00 pm

Sure, Jewish writers and artists have been the creators of some of the most popular superheroes and comic books of the past eighty years. But what about what happens in the pages of those comic books? You may be shocked to see the Jewish content contained within, ranging from a superhero wedding under a chuppah to Shabbat prayers recited on the eve before battle. Together, we’ll look at Judaism (and Chanukah) in comic books and compare it to textual sources. Prepare for the most colorful text study of all time!

Rabbi Brandon Bernstein grew up in Palmdale and at BKB, where he became Bar Mitzvah and received confirmation. He currently co-hosts a podcast, Funny, They Don’t Look Jewish, which explores explicitly Jewish content appearing in superhero comic
