The First and Only Jewish
The Problem: No Representation
Jews do not have a seat at the diversity table in Hollywood when it comes to representation and accommodations, unlike every other marginalized group. That’s because Jews are seen as too white, too rich and too privileged – all ideas based in antisemitism. The result is TV shows and movies with inauthentic, cartoonish Jewish depictions at best and vilified ones at worst. With no framework to prevent tropes and encourage more nuanced, diverse stories to be told, the entertainment industry is fueling antisemitism. Per the 2022 FBI hate crimes report, Jews continue to be the most targeted minority group per capita in the US.
