Mayim Bialik a Frum Jewish Actress Highlights Hollywood’s Rejection Of Religious Celebrities

Mayim Bialik, 39, the nerdy yet witty character from the Big Bang Theory, recently spoke out about Hollywood and her dedication to being an Orthodox Jewish woman.
According to US Magazine, Bialik told Fox news that she feels Hollywood isn’t as friendly to celebrities who are candid about their dedication to their religious beliefs.
“I think in general it’s never going to be trendy to be observant or religious in Hollywood circles,” she told FOX411. “There are people I know of faith and we tend to congregate together. I study Jewish texts weekly. That’s something positive to me when you’re a person of faith, it stays with you all the time.”
Bialik is not only a devote Orthodox Jew, but she is also openly supportive of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) and the Jewish state altogether. In the past when she had visited a friend in the IDF she received some rather hateful and anti-Semitic “fan mail.”
“I’ve gotten a lot of negative attention for visiting Israel,” she said. “That’s what’s amazing … simply by going to Israel this summer and saying nothing more than, ‘I’ve gone to Israel,’ I got the same amount of hatred and threats and anti-Semitism for actually making a statement trying to support people whether I like it or not are serving in an army.”
In addition to visiting her loved ones serving in the Israeli army, she also donated money to IDF last year for bulletproof vests,and enthusiastically supported the first Jewish Legos created by Minnesota man Yitzy Kasowitz.
“Am I dreaming? Jewish-themed Lego sets? I can get behind this Jewcer campaign 1000% and can’t wait for my incentives to come: an IDF Lego man and a Lego tzedakah box! (there’s also a Lego Seder plate!),” she wrote on her Facebook page.
Not only does she just support Israel, but she is also a practicing Jew who prides herself on her modest views. Last September, Bialik took to her blog to criticize Ariana Grande for being skimpy attire on a billboard.
The Big Bang Theory actress may be facing some opposition from anti-Israel fans and liberal Hollywood, but she won’t be going off the derech any time soon, making sure her liberal yet modest opinions are heard.

Watch this video,and see how the Satmar Kapo's of this generation indoctrinate their young ones in unadulterated vicious and pathological hatred towards Eretz Yisroel and it's Jews.
It should remind all of us,what the Nazi Germans did 70 years ago,when they set up the Hitler youth movement,for the sole purpose of poisoning the minds of their children with vicious Jew hatred,
of course this is much worse,because it is our own Jews doing it.
Please watch it and weep.
