Are The Simpsons Jewish?

  • This event has passed.

Listen to a light-hearted look at a serious subject, and learn how Judaism is portrayed in the world’s longest running and most popular animated comedy. If you think you know Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and baby Maggie…think again. As you’ll discover in this lively discussion, Krusty the Clown and his father Rabbi Krustofski may not be the only Jews in Springfield. Moment Magazine Editor Nadine Epstein will interview Mark Pinsky, author of The Gospel According to the Simpsons: BIGGER (and Possibly Even) BETTER! Edition, for an entertaining event that illustrates why the all-American Simpsons have a few skeletons in their closet – and they’re shaped like menorahs.
