Poster for Over the Top Judaism: Precedents and Trends in the Depiction of Jewish Beliefs and Observances in Film and Television

Author: Elliot B. Gertel

Over the Top Judaism offers criticism of scores of television episodes and films, mainly between 1980 and 2002, that highlight the beliefs and practices of Judaism, real or perceived. Author Elliot Gertel examines parallels and precedents in both media, and organizes the works topically, concluding with the most promising efforts. Chapters on classic television episodes cite interviews with writers and producers from Gertel's rare oral histories.
