This is a virtual event. Superman is Jewish? With Rabbi Elyse Wechterman
Faster than a speeding bullet. More powerful than a locomotive. Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. Look! Up in the sky! It’s a plane! It’s a nice yeshiva bocher? ! Let’s look at the Jewish history of Superman, He-man and many of the classic superheroes and what that tells us about Jewish fears, hopes and longings. Rabbi Elyse Wecheterman, self-proclaimed geek, will share the history of American superheroes and explore their connection to Jewish folklore and history.
