Morris the Mole


Morris the Mole was born Menachem Molesberg in the town of Łudz, Poland (b. 1937). He serves as our mascot. His motto is “dig deeper,” combining the unique qualities of Jewish inquiry and Mole-related digging.

Although there are many conventional mascots for Jewish organizations, Morris represents an approach we enjoy. He operates a dry cleaning store during the day, and at night attends Yiddish theatre, studies Jewish text, paints, and fits out his hole with the most interesting artwork.
