NGOs to Promote Social Change in Israel through ‘Forgotten Mitzvahs’

30 Shevat 5773 – February 10, 2013
"Our joint goal is to have the Torah guide our agenda in all areas of life."

Cartoon Rehab: It’s Miller Time, Sort Of

7 Iyyar 5772 – April 29, 2012
Today's cartoon is from Al-Watan (Qatar), from way back in May 13, 2003. The U.S. and Israel are shown eating from two sides of an apple that represents “the Arab states.” According to the middle-east-info.org, where we found it, this cartoon is noteworthy because it was published in Qatar, home to the Al Jazeera TV network. Qatar is considered by many in the U.S. State Department to be a U.S. ally and a relatively moderate state.

Cartoon Rehab: Toon Gets Tattooed

5 Iyyar 5772 – April 27, 2012
This one took the Photoshop equivalent of plastic surgery. The depiction of both the vampire-like Jewish person and the dead child in his arms is so vile, I had to fix every little aspect of the image.

Cartoon Rehab: The Cleansing Power of Baseball

4 Iyyar 5772 – April 26, 2012
The trick with this nasty but very well drawn cartoon, in which the Jews are depicted as a creature reminiscent of Sigourney Weaver's Alien, speaking to a wise, old Muslim sage, was to remove both religious symbols. Once those were out of the way, it became a cute setup for some sort of vaudeville-style sketch ("Who's on first" comes to mind).

Cartoon Rehab: Fixing the Crucifix

2 Iyyar 5772 – April 24, 2012
This cartoon, by Syrian artist Tishrin, was published September 22, 2011, and, to be fair, as anti-Israeli cartoons go it is relatively tame. But I was delighted by the opportunity to turn Tishrin's clever (albeit kinda trite) use of the letter T as cross, into the letter T as clothesline.

Cartoon Rehab: Oh, Go Ahead, Surrender, You Know You Want To…

1 Iyyar 5772 – April 23, 2012
Welcome to the Jewish Press Online Cartoon Rehabilitation Project (JPOCRP), or, in short (suggested by our colleague Rafi Harkham) Cartoon Rehab. We found this cartoon on the ADL website. They say it was originally published in Oman, April 12, 2012, and the original text, written in blood, says: "We Will Never Surrender."

Tikun Olam

28 Kislev 5772 – December 23, 2011
Tikun Olam, "repairing the world" has become a modern day catch phrase. It appears to be everywhere from the yeshiva world, to Christian groups, used by even certifiable cult leaders and Kabbalah enthusiasts - both the respected ones and the phony ones

Self Portrait Of The Artist As A Jew, With A Los...

26 Adar II 5765 – April 6, 2005
There is something very Jewish about R. B. Kitaj's work.
