Did you know how many prominent American companies were founded by Jews? Baskin-Robbins, Ben & Jerry’s, Dunkin Donuts, Google, H&R Block, Snapple, Starbucks and many more. Do you want to understand why some people say that Jews run Hollywood? Do you want to know how and why Jews thrived in the garment industry? Jewish Media – power, myth and reality - Do Jews control the media?
We will try to answer these questions and learn about the lives of American Jews in industry, business, the arts, and media. How has their Judaism impacted their lives – do they embrace their Judaism or shun it?
