This offbeat, irreverent documentary explores the relationship between Jewish composers and Christianity’s biggest holiday. It can be argued that Jews invented modern Christmas music. And not just Irving Berlin penning White Christmas. The songs Winter Wonderland, Silver Bells, even Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, were all written by Jews. Featuring David Wall, Michael Buble, Sarah Silverman, Philip Springer, Brenda Lee, Chuck Berry and more, this controversial (and sometimes self-hating) look at Hebrews and the holidays (they don’t celebrate) investigates the Jewish stranglehold on the most sacred of birthdays.
