Jewish 100, 2015: Mayim Bialik – Arts and Culture
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.”
