Links to the world

This week, Rocky Mountain Jew brings you links to diverse activities and viewpoints. For those visiting Los Angeles, or those drawn to sketched fantasy worlds, an exhibition explores the beginnings of comic book heroes. We also post Rupert Murdoch’s view on terrorism, security and Israel. Less whimsical is Rabbi Joseph Telushkin’s new Facebook group, exploring Jewish ethics.

  • Rabbi Joseph Telushkin has set up a Facebook group “The Jewish Ethics Project.” Members can submit their ethical dilemmas, either receiving an answer from the former Boulder-based rabbi himself, or sparking debate among other group members. (Jewish Week)
  • Los Angeles’ Skirball Cultural Center hosts an exhibition tracking the rise of the superhero – many of whom were penned by Jewish authors and artists – in troubled economic times. See also, the IJN article, “It’s a bird, it’s a plane – it’s a Jewish Watchmen.” (CNN)

    What an insightful, hard-hitting and plain-speaking piece from Murdoch. I feel proud that the AJC has recognized him with their National Human Relations Award.
