Top 10 Jews with capes

http://www.jewishjournal.com/blog/item/top_10_jews_in_capes_20110109/

With all the hype over NBC’s newest midseason replacement, The Cape, I started thinking if I know anyone who wears a cape.  I don’t (thank god).  But here’s a list of Jews who do.


1) Larry David


Who doesn’t remember Frank Costanza’s cape-wearing attorney? (Season 6, Ep. 4)



2) Superman


While he’s technically not Jewish, Superman exhibits many Jewish qualities (he’s and outsider, he’s committed to justice, he wears glasses).  Not to mention his parents, or rather, creators, Jerry Siegel and Joe Schuster were both Jewish.



3) Harry Potter


That’s not a wand in Daniel Radcliffe‘s hand, it’s a yad.



4) Maimonides


Tell me this guy didn’t wear a cape…



5) Dracula


He’s an Eastern-European immigrant, his day begins at night, doesn’t like crosses and always wears black.



6) Capers


They’re amazing on a bagel and lox with a side of herring and chopped liver.



7) Moses


So it was really a cloak, but whatever.



8) Chabad of Cape Cod


Donate here.



9) Magneto


This Marvel Comics supervillian, Erik Lehnsherr, clings to his Jewish roots and constant fear of suppression.



10) Every Jew on Shabbat


Cape, tallis - same thing…
