Description

"A story about my family, our religious identity and the hazards of menorah lighting.

"Using old family videos as a framing device, I trace my family history back to the city streets of 1960s Bronx, New York; the parking lot of a Lutheran church in Cedar Rapids, Iowa; and the Jewish ghettos of Kobe, Japan and Shanghai, China throughout World War II in this full color autobiographical comic book.

"I look at what Jewish traditions were practiced by mother when she was a child, the ones she carried on in our home, and which ones my brother and I continued as we started adult lives of our own. It is a tale of history, religion, identity, and how strange home movies from the early 1990s look today."
