Self-Loving Jew by Jonathan Rotsztain is a series of autobiographical comics claiming a secular, cultural Jewish identity. Guilt-free, Self-Loving Jew addresses the shift away from established Jewish institutions amongst younger Jewish people. The work is an attempt to articulate some of the ambivalence Jewish millennials may feel about religious Judaism, identity and assimilation. It embraces forging personal beliefs and practices that honour the Jewish legacy, adapting them alongside other value considerations.
