Dry Bones Comic Strip Creator Awarded Zion’s Builders Prize

The Dry Bones comic strip creator, Yaakov Kirschen, was awarded at the Knesset yesterday the Nefesh B’Nefesh Bonei Zion (“Zion’s builders”) Prize, which recognizes the achievements of outstanding Israeli immigrants from English-speaking countries and their contribution to the State of Israel.

Nefesh B’Nefesh said that Kisrchen’s strip “has provided a quintessentially Zionist, satirical and unique view of Israel to the world.”
