Another Reason to Love Lena Dunham

We have one more reason to love Lena Dunham. She is a dating a Jewish dude, Jack Antonoff, the guitarist from the band fun. Yes, that is right. A famous Jewish actress is unabashedly in love with a Jewish man. OMG! (They won’t get married until Gay marriage is legal everywhere, so don’t hold your breath or call Rabbi Yonah just yet.)

Antonoff spoke about his strong Jewish background to Heeb last spring and you can read more about him here.

I don’t think I could be more culturally proud of being Jewish. Religiously, though, there are a lot of things in Judaism, the religion, that I still have a very hard time with.

Lena spoke with the Jewish Journal about her own Jewish identity last spring too:

“I took an amazing trip to Israel two years ago,” she added. “It was the most connected I’ve felt to that part of myself. I learned a lot both spiritually and personally, so it’s something that I would like to write about, although I’m not sure this show will be the outlet.”

These two would love Jewlicious Festival with its creative Jewish fun come-as-you are attitude. Shall we start a petition?

struggling. emotional. help.

    Jewish actresses marrying Jewish men is more common than Jewish actors marrying Jewish women, actually.

We get that question a lot. It’s more than any other kind of weekend, and needs to be experienced to really get-it. HOWEVER, here is a short description: An agenda-free Jewlicious party of music, arts, and culture, for Jews ...
