Today’s Jewish writers are reclaiming and reshaping Jewish identity onscreen, and audiences are reacting to the increased Jewish representation with enthusiasm and worry, alternating between celebration and condemnation. So what do we look for in Jewish representation on TV? We’ll look at clips from Tv shows (and maybe a movie or two) and talk about how Jewish identity is being portrayed on TV and in the world.
