The Comic Book Rabbi Comes to Toronto - Tues., Dec. 14, 8:00 PM

Rabbi Simcha Weinstein, author of Up Up & Oy Vey : How Jewish History Culture & Values Shaped the Comic Book Superhero will be appearing at Chabad @ Flamingo for a public lecture, followed by a Q & A with the author, who will be on hand to meet greet, and sign copies of his book.

Some of Simcha Weinstein's earliest memories involve comic books, superheroes and (the now valuable) vintage Batman and Superman toys. His hobby inspired him to study film and eventually pursue a career in film production.

Following a life-altering paradigm shift, Simcha became a Torah observant Jew and was eventually ordained as a Rabbi. He is the founder of the downtown Brooklyn Jewish Student Foundation, and he serves as the Rabbi of the Pratt Institute and the Long Island College Hospital.

Rabbi Weinstein is a witty, entertaining and sought-after public speaker who has lectured across North America and has appeared on CNN, NPR and WNBC. Vist his website to learn more about him.
