Remember when movie stars used to change their names because they sounded too Jewish? That doesn’t seem to be the case anymore. In fact, Jews and non-Jews alike are sporting their Magen David and Kabbalah bracelets around town.
We saw it with Lindsay Lohan when she was dating Samantha Ronson. Now, we’re seeing it with Britney Spears amid her relationship with Jewish boyfriend (and her agent!) Jason Trawick. And don’t forget about Madonna and Demi Moore.
And now, the trend seems to be taking the T-shirt world by storm. PopJudaica founder Sara Schwimmer said Hollywood stars are "wearing their religion on their sleeves, or tees I should say."

If you’ve seen the coming attractions for the new movie Funny People, you’ll notice that Seth Rogen is wearing a T-shirt with an emblem formed of a Jewish star and Superman insignia. The "SuperJew" T-Shirt can be purchased online at PopJudaica.com. "Ever since the Funny People trailer hit the theaters, the SuperJew T-Shirt started selling like hot latkes," said Schwimmer.

In the wake of an increased awareness in Kabbalah after the likes of Madonna, "It will be interesting to see what kind of impact this latest fashion trend has on Jewish culture," said Schwimmer.
We here at Jewcy like to think we started it all with our infamous "Shalom, Motherfucker" T-shirt, shown below.
The T-shirt that started it all…
Too bad my "Everybody Loves a Jewish Girl" T-shirt doesn’t fit anymore! Luckily, Jewcy hooked me up with my new favorite tee, "Make Bagels Not War."
My mom said this is going to be our Christmas card this year. If you think that sounds weird, read more here.
