Does This Torah Make Me Look Fat?





Scott E. Blumenthal is a former Hebrew school principal, editor for the leading publisher of Jewish educational materials, and author of numerous Jewish children’s books that are used begrudgingly in classrooms across the country, including The Great Israel Scavenger Hunt and A Kid’s Mensch Handbook.


JoP is about a committed cynic who  himself turned -believer, professionally speaking, and the wacky hijinks that ensued. It’s about an Earth Jew who endeavored to break free of Judaism’s orbit, only to find himself drawn yet harder by its gravitational pull—by its best self, by its warmest corners, and by—as these things often go—its two most beautiful women.


A Jew on Pluto can help confirm [what you’ve always suspected:] that you’re far from alone in the universe.

Scott is…on-again, off-again relationship with its gravitational pull.
