One of the strange things about Hollywood is that it is simultaneously very Jewish and also not: The Holocaust is an acceptable topic of conversation, but Israel is not much discussed; Jewish victimhood is easier to process than the complexities of Jewish power. On the other hand, there's Zach Braff:
"As an American Jew it's an amazing feeling to come to a place where you feel you belong. You know we're such a minority in the U.S. Even though I grew up in New Jersey, which was very Jewish, and then I went to school in Chicago, which was Jewish, and then I moved to New York, which is very Jewish, and then I went to Hollywood, which is very Jewish. But they say we're only 2 percent of the population and shrinking because of intermarriage."
