Come hear a presentation and see images of this interesting comic. Jonathan creates autobiographical comics claiming a secular, cultural Jewish identity. Guilt-free, Self-Loving Jew addresses the shift away from established Jewish institutions amongst younger Jewish people. The work is an attempt to articulate some of the ambivalence Jewish millennials may feel about religious Judaism, identity and assimilation. It embraces forging personal beliefs and practices that honour the Jewish legacy, adapting them alongside other value considerations.
His collection of comic art entitled “Self-Loving Jew” was exhibited on the Koffler Centre for the Arts Digital Website last fall.
