Hollywood assistant confuses Rosh Hashanah for industry broker



If you didn’t know, today was the first day of the Jewish year and the beginning of the 10 holiest days on the Jewish calendar. Hag Sameach.

I wouldn’t expect many non-Jews to know when Rosh Hashanah falls on a given year or what it stands for. But, being that this is Los Angeles, I find it a bit unbelievable that somebody working in entertainment would confuse the Jewish New Year with some Hollywood big wig—no matter how much Jews dominate the industry.

But, indeed, that is the mistake an assistant at Dreamworks made. And, of course, her e-mail (pictured) made it’s way to Defamer, “embarrassing goyem all over the industry.”

Here goes:

Hey Ryan—

I’m sorry, b/c I’m covering for Lindsey’s usual asst., could you tell me, who’s Rosh Hashanah and why would he/she affect Kristi’s meeting with KN and MC?

Thanks! I really appreciate it!
