Shabot 6000

SomethingJewish is proud to present ShaBot 6000 a new Jewish cartoon created in New York and now available in the UK and across the web.

ShaBot 6000 is the continuing cartoon saga of a pious Jew who purchases a robot to work as Shabbos Goy for his household. The inquisitive robot, ShaBot, decides that he is Jewish, and is therefore unable to fulfill his duties as servant. ShaBot spends his days asking questions about Judaism, trying to find logic in a religion that sometimes DOES NOT COMPUTE.

About the Author

Ben Baruch, a direct descendent of the Vilna Gaon, has been asking unconventional questions about Judaism ever since he was a young boy in Yeshiva. While his queries about the Jewish faith were often met with disapproval, his passion for finding humor in religion only grew stronger. Eventually, he found that his only outlet was to express these feelings in the form of an innocuous comic strip. Today, Ben lives in Brooklyn, and in fear of G-d.
