The once revolutionary, understated “Jew-ish” and “Israel-lite” flavor of Seinfeld has been replaced by a brutal matter-of-factness that would make earlier generation cringe.
Your primer to the ever-changing face of Jewish comedy at the dawn of the 21st century: the new faces, their outrageous routines and their sometimes surprising seriousness about the most
(de)pressing issues of our time. This isn’t your zayde’s Jewish comedy!

The early comic book creators were almost all Jewish, and as children of immigrants, they spent their lives fighting for truth, justice, and the American Way.
An increasing number of fans and amateur historians, obsessed with back-story “mythology,” claim they’ve uncovered the secret “Jewish-ness” of the comic book characters. Superheroes, they claim, are usually outsiders; gifted yet misunderstood, and strangers in a strange land.
“I urge everyone who is interested in the deeper meanings behind heroes to enjoy this book.”
Stan Lee, Creator of Spider-Man, X-Men and The Incredible Hulk.
“This book shows the impact of Jewish spiritual wisdom on almost all of our favorite superheroes.”
Matisyahu, best-selling singer/songwriter
“This fascinating new book takes a look at the most surprising Jewish influence of all.”
Michael Medved, Film critic, Best-selling author, and nationally syndicated talk show host
