Thank you to all those who submitted caption entries for our Summer 2022 cartoon (left), based on Exodus 7:20: “Moses and Aaron did just as the Lord commanded. In the sight of Pharaoh and of his officials he lifted up the staff and struck the water in the river, and all the water in the river was turned into blood.” We are pleased to congratulate Jay Levy of Sherman Oaks, California, who wrote the winning caption, and our runners-up:
