My intention in writing this article is twofold. First, I aim to consider a small group of representations of British Jewish girlhood, and second, I attempt to expand the discourses through which Jewish girlhood has up until now been theorized, by considering Jewish girls beyond the confines of American spheres of representation. Representations of Jewishness have almost exclusively focused on the United States. This article considers how Jewish girls are represented in another context: that of British cinema.
