The JAP Show–Live

Ep. 144: Discussing and debating the Jewish American Princess stereotype with Odd Mom Out’s Jill Kargman, Broadway legend Tovah Feldshuh, and Jewish Women’s Archive director Judith Rosenbaum at the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan

This week on Unorthodox: Is it OK to say JAP? We were lucky to be joined by Odd Mom Out‘s Jill Kargman, Broadway legend Tovah Feldshuh, and Jewish Women’s Archive director Judith Rosenbaum at the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan last week for a lively discussion and debate about the Jewish American Princess stereotype–its origins, implications, and cultural staying power. We also screened a short film we made about the JAP stereotype, which you can watch here, and heard from audience members about what the phrase means to them.
