Has anyone seen any of these here or in another city? Are they any good? Also, has anyone read anything about this trend? Five years ago I don’t think there were this many shows with the word “Jew” in the title, let alone depicting stories about Jews.
If anyone has any ideas about this trend or has seen any articles, please do reply to this post.
