Today, I spoke with Becky Kramer about her amazing web series Jewvangelist. It is an awesome look into the life of an unmarried female Rabbi who is on the wrong side of 30 and who has spent her entire life in the synagogue.
When I talked with Becky, I instantly fell in love with the series and the characters. Not one time during the entire thought process of the show was it ever meant to be shaming, mocking or otherwise speak badly about the Jewish faith, but rather to celebrate it in a new way and show the new world of technology and progressive behavior to the people.
Becky is an amazing actress with a solid list of credits under her belt and she is, without a doubt, one of the most talented creatives I’ve had the pleasure to speak to on the podcast.
Jewvangelist should continue for many reasons, not the least of which is its compelling storytelling and great characters, but also because it is a solid web series that can only get better with a second season and can show people that there are so many opportunities to show cinema quality story and pictures in bite-sized chunks on the web.
This is one of those things that I think makes a lot of sense for a web series. It’s high quality in terms of cinematography, it’s well written, beautifully acted, and thought provoking. It’s also extremely funny, which makes it better than 80% of the stuff I see on the net right now.
Please support them in whatever way you can, promotion, encouragement or anything that can see this show get another season.
JEWVANGELIST follows the trials and tribulations of Leah Levy, a quirky young rabbi who, faced with the imminent loss of her family synagogue, decides to boldly go where no Jew has gone before…and sets out to convert some people.
