Is Superman Jewish? Many classic comic books such as Superman, Captain America, and The Fantastic Four were created by Jews. Rabbi Simcha Weinstein explores what compels Jews to create superheroes by walking us through a history of comics by writers who often came from Yiddish-speaking immigrant families. Like the superheroes they created, these writers understood the experience of having different identities at home and work. By examining comic books through a Jewish lens, Rabbi Weinstein highlights the themes of the Jewish immigrant experience that comics reveal, and argues that although Superman is not Jewish, his values are.
