The most prestigious cartooning Festival of the world, FIBD in Angoulême, France is the subject of controversy this year, and not for the first time.
French Jewish cartoonist Joann Sfar has created a series of cartoons imagining Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman character as the messiah.
Jewish cartoonist Joann Sfar asked the internet not to pray for Paris. But his call should not be seen as an attack on religion, fellow cartoonist Lior Zaltzman writes.
What happens when a cat eats a parrot? Obviously, it gains the ability to speak.

In a bid to shape which Jewish documentaries find an audience, the Foundation for Jewish Culture announced the recipients of the Lynn and Jules Kroll Fund for Documentary Film on December 15. The $140,000 grant (split between five recipients) enables filmmakers, considered to be expanding the understanding of Jewish experience, to reach a wider audience.
At 76, Rabbi Josy Eisenberg is a longtime representative of Judaism for the French public. He is the genial host of the half-hour religious program “La Source de Vie,” broadcast in various formats since 1962, and he helped write the 1973 hit comedy film “The Mad Adventures of Rabbi Jacob,” starring comedian Louis de Funès. In France, Rabbi Jacob is still so popular that in 2008, comedian Patrick Timsit, of Algerian Jewish origin, directed a music stage version complete with a Hasidic rap.
