Show Notes

With Purim just around the corner Aryeh and Alex sat down with the incredible, unstoppable, and incomparable Jordan B. Gorfinkel - better known as Gorf!

Gorf is the mastermind behind the new Koren Tanakh Graphic Novel series launched this year with Esther! Gorf is also the architect of the world-famous Passover Haggada Graphic Novel which has been a bestseller every year since its publication in 2019.

Outside the Jewish World, or perhaps in a different part of it, Gorf served as the manager of the Batman series at DC Comics for nearly a decade. He oversaw Birds of Prey which was later adapted into a 2022 TV series and a 2020 movie. He also directed the Batman: No Man's Land series which served as the inspiration for The Dark Night Rises and season 5 of the TV series Gotham.

Gorf shares his vision for Jewish education, a word he tries to avoid in favor of 'illuminating' for the next generation.

Join us to hear Gorf teach the whole Torah standing on one leg - al regel ahat!
