Summary

Rather than a celebration of the special Christian white person who did the right thing, the series is about how Jewish people and others under threat, including black people, Asian people and queer women of color, organize to protect themselves despite the indifference, or outright enmity, of those in power.Jonah frequently references Batman and other superheroes, and though they have no costumes or superpowers, the hunters are consciously positioned as "real life f------- Jewper heroes" — inheritors of the capes and masks handed down by those Jewish creators of yore. The series doesn't so much turn heroism Jewish, as it gives all those historical caped crusaders back the Jewishness that commercial considerations kept them from acknowledging.Perhaps the most compelling aspect of the series is the way that it insists that if you want to learn about fascism, you should listen to the people who are targeted by fascism. The other guests, including even her husband, don't believe her — which results in the the worst possible outcome for everyone.Perhaps the most compelling aspect of the series is the way that it insists that if you want to learn about fascism, you should listen to the people who are targeted by fascism."The greatest gift of the Jewish people is to remember," Meyer Offerman says.
