Book Talk: Is Superman Circumcised?
Explore the Jewish origins of the Man of Steel, created by Jewish teens who based their hero’s story on Moses, Samson, and their families.

Superman is the original superhero–and he’s Jewish! From his introduction in 1938 as a refugee on the eve of World War II to present day, Superman’s mostly Jewish writers, artists and editors continue to borrow Jewish motifs and experiences for their stories, basing Krypton’s past on Genesis and Exodus, the trial of Lex Luthor on Adolf Eichmann’s, and more.

Author Roy Schwartz presents a fascinating journey through comic book lore, American history, and Jewish tradition.
