Director of 2003's The Hebrew Hammer Raises Funds for Sequel

Ten years after director Jonathan Kesselman blew our minds with The Hebrew Hammer (a spoof-driven hebrew hammer"Jewsploitation" made in homage to the great Blacksploitation films of the '70s), he's ready to do it all again with a sequel titled The Hebrew Hammer vs Hitler.

In the original 2003 film, the crime fighter known as the Hebrew Hammer (played to perfection by Adam Goldberg) is on a mission to save Hanukkah from the evil son of Santa Claus (Andy Dick in a role he was born to play) who plans to outlaw the Jewish holiday. If you thought Santa's son was formidable, get a load of this...in the sequal, the Hammer takes on non-other than the most-hated man of modern history...Hitler. See, when Hitler gets his hand on Time Sukkah technology™ and begins rewriting Jewish History, The Hebrew Hammer and his partner Mohammed Ali Paula Abdul Rahim set out through time to stop him. 

As Goldberg told The Hollywood Reporter, "You want to see him go after the big one. Who’s the Jewish Joker? Hitler. It’s implicit that if we are going to take on Hitler, there’s a time-travel element, so once that widened the scope infinitely, I thought it was important that we hook up with the other big Jew in history: Jesus."

Well, he's got my attention, but the film needs your help to get made! Help fun The Hebrew Hammer vs Hitler by donating on their fundraising page and by spreading the word.
