VARIETY and Jewish Life Television Partner to Broadcast “The State of Antisemitism” on JLTV


JLTV Will Premiere Variety’s The State of Antisemitism” on Sunday, November 19th at 9:00PM ET/PT

Los Angeles, CA, Nov. 15, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — On October 5, 2023, Variety announced its inaugural Antisemitism & Hollywood Summit. Little did the organizers know that two days later, Israel would face its worst terrorist attack in the history of the nation, with October 7th becoming the deadliest day for the Jewish people since the Holocaust. When the Summit was held nearly two weeks later, its participants could not ignore the trauma of the moment, coupled with the simultaneous anger and fragility that they each felt.

To amplify the critically important message of the Summit – that Hollywood plays a vital role as storytellers that can fight Antisemitism – Variety and Jewish Life Television have partnered to bring this Summit to a wider audience. JLTV will be airing a one-hour panel discussion with some of Hollywood’s great storytellers, “The State of Antisemitism.”


Matti Leshem, producer and founder of New Mandate Films, heads the panel with Greg Berlanti, executive producer of hit series such as “You” and “The Flight Attendant,” David Kohan, Emmy-winning creator and executive producer of “Will & Grace,” Josh Malina, actor in “Inventing Anna,” and Alana Newhouse, founder and Editor-in-Chief of Tablet. 

“We are proud to offer a platform for some of the most prominent people in Hollywood to speak about the issue of Antisemitism, which is tragically top of mind right now,” said Dea Lawrence, Chief Operating and Marketing Officer of Variety. “Our partnership with JLTV allows an even wider audience to see that Hollywood is committed to combating Antisemitism in all its forms.”

“We at JLTV were particularly heartened when we learned that Variety had planned to shine a light on the scourge of Antisemitism,” said Brad Pomerance, JLTV’s Executive Vice President. “Upon hearing the powerful messages coming out of the Summit after October 7th, we are incredibly pleased that we have partnered with Variety so we can bring their Summit to our large North American audience.”
