The Oscars are over. Or as B.B. King would croon “The Thrill is Gone.” But thanks to Heeb Magazine’s spectacular work, we don’t need to move on just yet. Check out this fantastic, crazy, hilarious and at times embarrassing collection of the “100 Greatest Jewish Movie Moments” of all time.
Because it’s the Most Memorable: #88 – The Chosen
It has the Best Anti-Semitic Character: #70 Fagin in Oliver Twist (2005)
Definitely the Hottest Non-Jew to Play a Jew: #66 Adrien Brody in The Pianist
You can watch/admire the Sexiest Middle-Aged Jewish Couple: #64: Dustin Hoffman and Barbra Streisand in Meet the Fockers (2004)
And gasp at the Most Offensive: #100 – The “Bite Tushy” scene from “Where’s Poppa” (1970)
And so many other greats, for other reasons.
