Talmud Tales: The Rise of Yavneh

Recommended for older teens and adults

Artist Statement:

“Talmud Tales” brings a new perspective to the famous beginning of Gittin 55-56, in which Jerusalem is destroyed due to the confusion of Kamtza and Bar Kamtza. As a comedy writer and a cartoonist, we approached the piece with a contemporary voice and used humor to focus on the positive outcomes of the story. While most might view the tale as “the destruction of Jerusalem,” we like to think of it as “the rise of Yavneh.” We were inspired by each other’s similar comedic styles and had a ton of fun seeing the jokes on the page come to life with flash animation.
