Steven Spielberg (December 18, 1946)
Can you find Jewish content in Jaws, Indiana Jones, E.T., Jurassic Park, or Back to the Future? What about Who Framed Roger Rabbit? Spielberg has made so many films I can’t begin to name them. Two that do have Jewish content: Munich and Schildler’s List. Spielberg’s generous support of Jewish oral and filmed history projects is where he’s really earned my respect.
