An amazing team at ABC and On The Red Carpet filmed a mini documentary on my life as an Orthodox Jewish woman, why I started Jew in the City, the JITC Hollywood Bureau, and why Jewish representation matters. They captured my life, my joy, my relationship to my Jewish identity so authentically because they let my light shine without projecting anything onto it. We must give a shout out to this TREMENDOUS team: Nzinga Blake Shako Liu, Sierra Stoltzfus, Jessica Dominguez, Lakesha Walker, Amit Lerner. They brought seventeen years of hard work, the JITC dream, to Hollywood!! I have never seen Orthodox Jewish representation like this from a major network and now that they’ve done this, we know it is only the beginning. Check out the ABC article here.
