Mayim Bialik: Jewish Actress Unplugged
- This event has passed.
From Molly Picon to Natalie Portman, the experiences of Jewish women in Hollywood have often been shaped by their Jewishness. Join Mayim Bialik for a frank discussion about Jewish women and Hollywood stardom – from typecasting and “looking Jewish” to depictions of Jewish characters by Jewish and non-Jewish actresses.
Best known for her portrayal of a young Bette Midler in Beaches and her lead role as Blossom Russo in the 1990s sitcom Blossom, Bialik went on to earn a Ph.D. in Neuroscience and has since returned to acting, appearing in HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, Saving Grace, Till Death, and The Secret Life of the American Teenager.
Now leading a more observant Jewish lifestyle than her Reform upbringing, Bialik will also speak about how she balances aspects of her Jewish identity such as dressing modestly in an industry that leans toward provocative. Co-sponsored with Jewish Women International.
