Hi there friends. You may or may not have seen Mishpacha running weekly in London's Jewish News newspaper or on www.j-wire.com.au in Australia and New Zealand. If you have, I hope you've enjoyed it. If you're new to the strip, I hope you're going to enjoy it.
Mishpacha stars the Kaufmans – a Jewish family headed by Benny and Cheryl, who run “Benny’s Deli” for a living. As you probably know, the word “mishpacha” means “family” and the strip mainly revolves around the Kaufmans, their children, Ylana and Jonah, Benny’s in-laws, Becky and Morrie and the family dog, Yomtov. Of course, other characters also feature. There’s Benny’s best friend, Ronnie, local gangster, Jack Iceberg and the wholly unpleasant Mrs. Grimstein.
Each strip contains a joke, but as readers have got to know the characters, they have also started to understand what makes them tick.
If you might be interested in running Mishpacha in your publication, on your website, or would like to discuss other ideas, please contact our Sales Director, Jonah Solomons at firstname.lastname@example.org.
