Idol Chatter, a religion and pop culture blog, recently posted an item with its picks for the Top 10 Jewish Movie Characters. Mordechai Jefferson Hammer (Adam Goldberg, pictured) from The Hebrew Hammer came in at No. 1, because he was the most frequently referenced character when the author of the list solicited nominations from her Facebook friends. (I think it’s poetic, then, that I found out about the list from my Facebook friend Jonathan Kesselman, writer/director of The Hebrew Hammer, who said he was honored
using a metaphor I can’t print.) Check out the list — which also includes Star Wars‘ Obi-Wan Kenobi (Sir Alec Guinness, pictured) at No. 5, and Julius Levinson (Judd Hirsch), Jeff Goldblum’s father in Independence Day, at No. 4 — then tell us who you would have nominated.
