Rabbi Simcha Weinstein and I became Facebook friends recently. We’re not even quite sure how it happened. But when I read this his bio, I wondered how in the world I’d never heard of him. An Orthodox (Chabad) rabbi who works at a prominent New York City art school (Pratt, which I applied to before I decided to major in English and forget my dream of becoming an illustrator) and loves pop culture and comic books?! And he’s a blogger and a speaker, too? Why in the world didn’t we connect early?
