This Sunday, JT will be one of the guest speakers at LimmudPhilly, taking place in Classroom 404 at the Gershman Y in Philadelphia, PA, 4:30 PM - 5:45 PM. His session, entitled "Make Your Own Comix Midrash" is described below.
Explore the topic of Midrash. How does this ancient process and body of work relate to us today? How does the show and tell quality of comics make it an ideal medium to discover personal connections to Jewish text, folklore and holidays? Following a lively presentation of the topic of Midrash and the Jewish connections within the comic book industry, participants will create their own mini-Midrash comics about familiar biblical or historical characters. No artistic experience required. All levels welcome!
