The Jews Who Stole Christmas

—In Devel­op­ment


This off­beat, irrev­er­ent doc­u­men­tary explores the rela­tion­ship between Jew­ish com­posers and Christianity’s biggest hol­i­day. It can be argued that Jews invented mod­ern Christ­mas music. And not just Irv­ing Berlin pen­ning “White Christ­mas.” The songs “Win­ter Won­der­land,” “Sil­ver Bells,” even “Rudolph the Red Nosed Rein­deer,” were all writ­ten by Jews. Fea­tur­ing David Wall, Michael Buble, Sarah Sil­ver­man, Philip Springer, Brenda Lee, Chuck Berry and more, this con­tro­ver­sial (and some­times self-hating) look at Hebrews and the hol­i­days (they don’t cel­e­brate) inves­ti­gates the Jew­ish stran­gle­hold on the most sacred of birthdays.
