Mayim Bialik

Actress

Actress Mayim Bialik has repeatedly urged Israel-backers not to be apologetic in voicing their support for the Jewish state.

“I think what’s important about speaking out is that I don’t even think of it as ‘speaking out,’ ” the Jewish Big Bang Theory star has said. “I don’t think you should be ashamed to talk about your support for a country where Jews can have an autonomous existence.” Like her television character, Bialik is also a neuroscientist.

She also made headlines in 2015 for a Facebook post in which she blasted critics who boycott her on social media because of her Zionist beliefs.

On a less serious note, Bialik recently starred in the Jewish web comedy series called “YidLife Crisis.”

    You are right. Jews shouldn’t be apologetic for supporting the Jewish state. It’s better than the old days when I would here, “Jews have a right to defend themselves”, and “Israel has a right to exist.”
    It’s a process of climbing out of the galut mentality.
    We will get over it soon.
