Hollywood is not only a fun factory of vapid entertainment. At times, Hollywood plays an important role. The role of the ancient storyteller. Hear its stories and draw from its wisdom.
If we believe that religious stories teach us valuable lessons, then we have a moral obligation to learn these lessons for ourselves and convey these lessons to our children. Wholesome Hollywood entertainment is a gift. Use it. Go to the theater and make it your study hall. See every non-subversive movie that is released. Support good, wholesome Hollywood entertainment. Support movies that teach the lessons our religions are supposed to teach. In the words of Maimonides: “Hear truth, whoever speaks it.”
At the moment that our foundational religious stories began to echo too distantly in the past, a new storytelling rose to supplement what time threatened to take from us. It sounds… almost Biblical.
