I couldn’t be more proud to be part of Keshet as we announce the publication of the world’s first English-language Jewish children’s book with LGBT characters, THE PURIM SUPERHERO.

The Jewish holiday of Purim is coming up next week. It involves, among other things, dressing in costume.
Last year I celebrated Purim in New York, so I went as Spider-man: The Musical.
