In this review of the Hallmark movie, "Hanukkah on Rye," Greg Nussen, while recognizing its resonance for diaspora Jews, that by treating the American Jewish community as a monolith, it reinforces old antisemitic tropes about Jews. To watch the movie,, Nussen argues, "is to experience a racial othering in real time, as if Jews are perennially stuck in some manufactured bubble in which we're all badgered by overbearing parents, we all eat Chinese food on Christmas Eve while we watch a movie, and the only thing we disagree on is the proper way to dress up a bagel with lox and capers."
