Hollywood Yiddishkeit: Jewish Images in American Film

October 21, 2018 , 7:00 pm


Visit Temple Sholom of Scotch Plains on October 21, 7 pm, for an evening with author John Kenrick. Free and open the public, the evening’s program is entitled “Hollywood Yiddishkeit: Jewish Images in American Film.” It is a fascinating look at how an industry dominated by Jewish executives and creative talents has depicted Jews, from the silent era to the present.

John Kenrick gives talks on theater and film history, has appeared in numerous documentaries, and is the author of Musicals101.com, The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Amateur Theatricals, and the textbook Musical Theatre: A History. His college courses have included the History of Musical Theatre, Great Broadway Songwriters, and Rodgers & Hammerstein. He has also offered courses on Hollywood Legends, The History of Screen Musicals, and The Golden Age of MGM, among others. John has also lectured at Wagner College, Marymount Manhattan, Pace University and The University of the Arts in Philadelphia.
