The Golem of Brooklyn
The Golem of Brooklyn (on sale today!) is a ferociously funny reimagining of the golem of Jewish folklore. Accidentally brought to life in a basement apartment in Brooklyn, he embarks on an absurd road trip through modern America to face off against the rising threat of antisemitism in America. A thought-provoking novel from from Reboot network member, Adam Mansbach, author of the New York Times bestselling pseudo-children’s book Go the F*ck to Sleep, The Golem of Brooklyn is a modern-day adventure shadowed by an ancient past.

In celebration of the Jewish holiday of Sukkot, Reboot and Holocaust Museum LA marked the moment with a weeklong free public art exhibit in Pan Pacific Park. The Ushpizin of the Silver Screen was a reimagining of the traditional Sukkah fashioned as an old-time Hollywood era movie house, projecting stories on screens to commemorate our beloved elders and give them a voice. The Ushpizin of the Silver Screen was made possible with the generous support of CANVAS. The work was part of the national project – Dwelling in a Time of Plagues – which makes new outdoor art possible at museum sites, with organizational support from the Council of American Jewish Museums.
