Hammer


With the holiday season fast approaching, this is the time of year where the ubiquity of Christmas leaves a Jew like myself hungry for pop-culture representations of his own people. It’s not like Hanukah doesn’t get attention–thank you, Adam Sandler–but they are usually overly preoccupied with just how dwarfed the holiday is by Christmas.

It’s a trend that leaves a special place in my heart for “The Hebrew Hammer,” a hilarious 2003 movie that aired on Comedy Central featuring Adam Goldberg as a Jewish superhero. And you wonder why he doesn’t work more often.

Now the screenwriter behind the film, Jonathan Kesselman, is trying to raise enough shekels to produce a sequel, “The Hebrew Hammer vs. Hitler.” He’s turned to the website Jewcer, which raises funds for Jewish-themed enterprises. Because everyone knows Kickstarter is for gentiles.

Please give the Jews the gift of some pop culture of which we can be proud.
