According to Gabe Friedman of the JTA posted on November 7, 2017, the Hebrew Hammer is back…and this time, with a vengeance. As many may recall, Adam Goldberg played a quintessentially, and oft-times outlandish, Jewish superhero in a 2003 film by Jonathan Kesselman.  According to Friedman: “The film has become a cult classic, and its protagonist, who wears a yarmulke and a necklace with a machine gun pendant, has become a go-to symbol of Jewish toughness — something that’s rarely found in the pop culture zeitgeist.”

The Hebrew Hammer has been in retirement ever since. However, the recent political climate has motivated the team to reprise the Hebrew Hammer in a sequel. Golberg, Kesselman and producer Harrison Huffman have initiated a crowdfunding project to help bring the film to fruition:
