Superman Was a Jew - Beit Midrash class in Spring 2007

Jacksonville Jewish Federation is offering a course called "Superman was a Jew" in Spring 2007 as part of its Beit Midrash offerings.

This class looks at how Jews transformed the comic book industry from 1938—present. The creators of some of our favorite comic book stars — Superman, the Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, Batman and the X-men - were Jewish. Students will learn about how these creators designed characters and personas to reflect Jewish values and ideals, and will have the opportunity to design their very own story board in this exciting class.
Instructor: Mrs. Karen Morse
