New Tumblr Blog: All Jews Wear Black Hats and Have Beards

Leave a Comment

Recently, I’ve been noticing a lot of stories about Jews in the media illustrated with photos such as this one:

Jewish-men-walk-along-the-014

It strikes me as an interesting phenomenon – clearly, strictly orthodox Judaism is, for some at least, the public face of the generic Jew. So I’ve started a Tumblr blog to track stories that are illustrated with pictures of strictly orthodox Jews: All Jews Wear Black Hats and Have Beards.

To explain more fully why I’ve started this project, I’ve written this article. Enjoy.
