My Entries in the Moment Cartoon Caption Contest for January/February 2017

Here's hoping my entries in the Moment Cartoon Caption Contest for January/February 2017 don't get a chilly reception. Moment Magazine calls itself "North America’s premier Jewish magazine," so I took the liberty of using some Jewish terminology in my captions. A minyan is a Hebrew term for the quorum of ten men age 13 and older—not children—required for public worship. Frum is a Yiddish expression meaning pious or observant. The drawing is by Benjamin Schwartz.
"Let's find enough kids to make a minyan."
"I think I'm getting the cold shoulder."
"I made him frum, but he could still drift."

March 23, 2013 Update:  The Finalists

April 22, 2017 Update:  I voted for the first caption.

May 20, 2017 Update:  Winning Caption

Glossary:  A kippah is a skullcap or yarmulke.

Note:  This blogger has now entered many cartoon caption contests by Benjamin Schwartz, more than enough to make a minyan.

Would you like to learn from my captioning mistakes? Right now you can search high and low through every single cartoon caption contest I ever entered. Alternatively, it might be easier for you to search just the Moment Magazine contests.
