A funny and insightful four-episode TV documentary series showcasing the cultural and political influence of the Jewish community in the United States, the variety of alternative models it offers for living a rich Jewish life and the rifts in relations between them and the State of Israel – presented by Guri Alfi, one of Israel’s most popular comedians.
This series was produced for the Public Broadcasting Corporation in Israel.
“The New Jew” touches upon a complex and charged issue – Israeli and American Jewry relations- and manages to do so in an original, sensitive and, above all, funny way.
