"Malopolska" by Yirmi Pinkus

The first issue of Guilt & Pleasure magazine contains the short comic story "Malopolska". The Table of Contents for the issue, as it appears on the website, provides the following description :

Pinkus’s comic strip asks whether there is really anything new about renewal. As Jews move on, do Jews just create new versions of the places they left behind? After visiting Poland, Pinkus wonders whether his hometown of Tel Aviv could be seen as a kind of shtetl redux as opposed to a medieval city? This article can be a nice complement to Josh Kun’s memoir and Nathaniel Deutsch’s essay. To what extent are we always recreating what we know, for better or for worse?
