Moments in History: Jewish Entertainers in Film

| |

One of my favorite jobs here at the Jewish Women’s Archive is putting together our This Week In History email. I get a (admittedly nerdy) thrill at seeing what happened at other points in history. I like the idea of imagining myself on May 2nd 100 years ago—or 50 years ago—or 25 years ago, and wondering if I would be as brave, accomplished or celebrated as each of the women that we profile.

For Jewish American Heritage Month, we’ve scoured the archive for a special selection of posts we are calling Moments in History. This selection includes moments ranging from 1890 to 2011, each profiling a noteworthy moment in the history of female Jewish filmstars. I encourage you to read each selection and share your thoughts in the comments—and, of course, bookmark JWA’s Jewish American Heritage Month page and return throughout May to learn more about Jewish women on the stage, from TV, and in other forms of entertainment!
