Frankenstein Meets the Bible | Rabbi Levi Welton

Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein was published in London in the early 1800’s well after the Jewish legend of the Golem-creature who protected 16th century Jews in Prague Although there are some differences between the story lines, the similarities between Frankenstein and the Golem are striking: For starters, they were both big and scary with superhuman strength. Plus, they both had to be Jewish.
