Mission Statement

JEW(ish) is written by Jewish siblings who are trying to rewrite the media's current depiction of the modern Jewish family. It is important to us to represent as many minorities in our cast & crew, especially Jews, because to this day, Jewish stories are often told without a Jewish lens.

The Story

JEW(ish) is a dark comedy about a brother and sister who search for the afikomen during their family Passover Seder, but find instead a sinister secret. It's a story about the integrity of self-identity, and what responsibility we have for our ancestors' misdeeds. We explore this conundrum through the lenses of two Jewish-American teenaged siblings living in today's fraught society, and explore what it really means to be "Jewish." But funny!
