Broad City is Bringing Jewish Justice to Halloween

I’m dying to see season 3 of “Broad City” set to premiere in February 2016.

But to make the wait a little easier, Abbi and Ilana have been regaling us with little video sketches. You know, so we won’t miss them too much.

The last one was a perfectly Jewy Yom Kippur sketch and their most recent clip, pegged to Halloween, is no less Jewish.

After a rant about sexy Halloween, which they hate —  not because it’s too slutty, but rather, too weather inappropriate (preach!) — Ilana and Abbi both surprise each other with their respective costumes: court dresses and frilly jabots. Are these “besties” so synchronized that they bought the same Halloween costume without telling each other?

Well, it turns out Abbi and Ilana will be dressed up as two very different Jewish judges… Watch the clip below:

I hope you appreciated this article. Before you go, I’d like to ask you to please support the Forward’s award-winning journalism this Passover. 

In this age of misinformation, our work is needed like never before. We report on the news that matters most to American Jews, driven by truth, not ideology.

At a time when newsrooms are closing or cutting back, the Forward has removed its paywall. That means for the first time in our 126-year history, Forward journalism is free to everyone, everywhere. With an ongoing war, rising antisemitism, and a flood of disinformation that may affect the upcoming election, we believe that free and open access to Jewish journalism is imperative.

Readers like you make it all possible. Right now, we’re in the middle of our Passover Pledge Drive and we need 500 people to step up and make a gift to sustain our trustworthy, independent journalism. 

— Rachel Fishman Feddersen, Publisher and CEO

Our Goal: 500 gifts during our Passover Pledge Drive!
