It all started in a synagogue with “a thing for art.”
All it took was a Shabbat dinner between the President of Congregation Kol Israel, Fred Polaniecki, and comic book creator Fabrice Sapolsky. Together, they outlined the Jewish Comic Con - a place to explore how Jewish identity has influenced comics both on the page and behind the scenes. Featuring panel discussions, artist tables, and lots of shmoozing,
Congregation Kol Israel was built in 1924 and is on the National Registry of Historic Places. It is the oldest continuously running Orthodox shul in Brooklyn. All proceeds from the con will go to help preserve and restore this historic landmark.
The Brooklyn Jewish Art Gallery at CKI is a project of the shul's that showcases and supports Jewish art and artists from around the world.
Now, Congregation Kol Israel is proud to organize the first ever Comic Con in a synagogue, our synagogue!
