Starting today, the Film Center of Lincoln Center is putting on a film series it calls “Hollywood’s Jew Wave” that celebrates the period from the 1960’s and 1970’s when a new group of Jewish writers, directors and actors produced a ton of influential Hollywood movies.
From Woody Allen to Dustin Hoffman to Mel Brooks to Elliot Gould to Barbara Streisand, it was a Jewy time indeed (I can say that because I’m Jewish). The film series runs from November 3 through November 13 and tickets cost $13 each. Check out the schedule here.

Just being Jewish (“I can say that because…”) does not give you license to make foolish and distasteful comments. Both the title of this column and coinage are offensive and out of line. They are not an example of non-PC, just dumb.
