Can you draw a stick figure? Can you tell a story about what you did when you woke up? Are you Jewish? Well, then, according to Gorf (as Jordan B. Gorfinkel is known), you, like him, are a Jewish cartoonist!
Our 3rd and 4th graders had the opportunity this week to work with author Jordan B. Gorfinkel to create and illustrate their own comic book of Megillat Esther. Each student took a different section of the story to retell and draw, and Gorf will put them together into a complete comic book Megillah. Students will receive a copy of their class's collaboration in time for Purim so that they can share and enjoy with their families. Stay tuned...
Gorf is the author of a new Haggadah Graphic Novel that was on sale through Parents Council.
