Compiled by Sherry Huang


Welcome summer with humorous Jewish t-shirts like the one shown above: "Jew-Jitsu." The design shows a traditionally dressed Jewish man crouched in a martial arts position while throwing weapons in the shape of the Star of David.

Some of the t-shirts here may seem irreverent when combined with familiar pop culture references, but we hope you'll keep an open mind and see which designs tickle your faith.
