Jaffe, Jericho. Jericho Jaffe was created by Bertha Wiernik and appeared in the serial “The Menorah Spangled Ship” (Jewish Daily News, April 23-28, 1919).

Jericho Jaffe is a Jewish inventor who is killed during the sinking of the Lusitania. Before he dies he passes on to a friend plans for “Palestine’s first steamship,” an enormous colony ship which will carry ten thousand Jews and be unsinkable. Years into the future, Jaffe’s dream comes true and the Menorah Spangled Ship becomes a reality.
