The Case of the Missing Narrative: Hollywood, Media and Jewish Poverty

Monday, October 30, 2023, 2:00pm – 3:00pm EDT

This event has been postponed while we support our family and friends in Israel. We will provide an update as soon as a new date is determined.

What is the story of the Jewish people in America today? In order to better understand how Hollywood and the media shape our community's narrative, we set out to explore the stories of Jewish wealth and poverty Americans are presented with on film, television, and in the news media.

Through a new report, we learned that for every TV and film portrayal of a Jewish person experiencing poverty, there are NINE times as many wealthy Jews. Yet according to Pew Research, in 2021, 26% of American Jews had difficulty paying their bills at least once that year. See the full report here and read coverage in JTA. 

Please join us for a webinar led by the report’s author Mik Moore and other guests on October 30th.
