Hollywood Celebs Unite to Combat Antisemitism in New Video: ‘I’m a Proud Jew’

With disturbing, new waves of antisemitism continuing to rage around the globe, a group of celebrities have come together to sound the alarm and combat the issue. The “New Year, New Voices” campaign emerged Wednesday with a new video that included several Jewish and non-Jewish voices, as Fox News reported.

Some of the well-known names in the video message are actresses Hayden Panettiere, Amy Smart, and Jamie-Lynn Sigler, and model Cindy Crawford.

“Our newest @2024newvoices hero video is here featuring some of our favorites speaking out against antisemitism,” a video description reads on Instagram. “Please spread our message by sharing the video with your communities. We are strongest together.”

The celebrities in the video make a variety of proclamations. Some say, “I’m a proud Jew” while others stand up against anti-Jewish sentiment and encourage people to rally around the Jewish people.

“I stand against antisemitism,” Crawford proclaims at one point in the clip.

Actress Mayim Bialik, who has been outspoken in her support for Israel since Hamas’ deadly terror attack, encourages people to follow the 2024 New Voices social media accounts to learn more.

While some celebrities condemned the Oct. 7 terror attack, the “New Year, New Voices” campaign takes a broader aim at antisemitism, with its founder, Samantha Ettus, telling CNN last month that it’s important to reframe how these issues are understood.

“Propaganda has made people think that standing up to antisemitism is political – and it’s not,” she said. “It is just as acceptable to stand up against antisemitism as it is any form of hate towards any ethnic group.”

Ettus, who has rallied many other celebrities to take part, also decried the fact there hasn’t been as much lamenting of antisemitism at award shows and other red carpet events, citing a “lack of…advocacy” among some in Hollywood.

“We have become this population that people are afraid to stand up for, and this campaign is trying to change that,” she told CNN.
