First published as a book in Yiddish in 1938, A Bunch of Jews is a collection of stories by Max B. Perlson, focused on a small shtetl called Duboy in Belarus, and Brooklyn, New York, in the early 20th century.

This adaptation was done by the author’s daughter, Trina Robbins and a collection of fine artists

Featuring stories of arrogant schoolteachers, boastful travelers, stingy merchants, adoring pets, and all the disasters and triumphs that can happen to families and tight-knit communities, this comic is a loving tribute to Jewish culture before the coming of the war that would change things forever.
