Variety Partners with JLTV to Broadcast “The State of Antisemitism” Panel Discussion
On October 5, 2023, Variety announced its Antisemitism & Hollywood Summit. Two days later, Israel faced its worst terrorist attack, and October 7 became the deadliest day for the Jewish people since the Holocaust. As the summit was held nearly two weeks later, Jewish communities were coping with trauma, anger, and fear due to a sharp rise in antisemitism around the world.
The summit’s participants knew they couldn’t ignore the situation and decided to bring the summit to a wider audience. Their goal is to amplify the message that Hollywood plays a vital role in fighting antisemitism.
“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.
Variety’s partnership with JLTV will allow for a 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 7, we are incredibly pleased that we have partnered with Variety so we can bring their Summit to our large North American audience.”
The panel will be led by Matti Leshem, producer and founder of New Mandate Films, along with Greg Berlanti, David Kohan, Josh Malina, and Alana Newhouse.
Viewers will be able to screen several other panel discussions that were held during the day-long Summit on Variety’s website.
