Watch Judd Apatow's PSA for American Jewish World Service That's Not Approved by American Jewish World Service


In honor of the American Jewish World Service organization’s 25th anniversary—not to mention the organization’s president’s 70th birthday—director Judd Apatow decided to film a funny skit promoting the AJWS. Although the short is understandably not endorsed by the charity, it still features cameos from lots of great Jewish and non-Jewish celebrities including comedian Sarah Silverman, Star Trek’s Patrick Stewart, Community’s Donald Glover and Lindsay Lohan’s Lindsay Lohan.

The three-minute video features great lines such as Silverman’s, “Last year, American Jewish World Services gave away more than $22 million in grants. That really throws a wrench in the ‘Jews are cheap’ premise. I mean, if you think that’s cheap, there’s no way you’re Asian, because you’re really bad at math.” Said lines might maybe lend a little evidence as to why the AJWS might have chosen not to greenlight the promotional video’s production.

The piece premiered at the charity’s benefit event last night in Manhattan, N.Y.
