Chapter XI: The Cave And the Multiplication
The Travels of Reb Mendelovitch is an experimental comix strip in the form of a scroll, describing the imaginary adventures of reb Mendelovitch in a chaotic, politically unstable world. The protagonist is based on Schneur Zalman of Hebron, an orthodox artist and a HABAD rabbinical envoy who had traveled around the world, and the author’s great-great-grandfather.
In the final (!) installment Mendelovitch’s children accuse him of heresy, and he returns home to write the scrolls.
