In a parody of “Santa Baby,” Bloom wears a blue-and-white Santa outfit to try to seduce her Jewish crush by playing up their tribal bond and cooing, “Come and bless my challah tonight.”

‘JAP Rap Battle’

‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ (2016)



Rebecca Bunch (Bloom) and her childhood nemesis, Audra Levine (Rachel Grate), duke it out in the Jewish American Princess Rap battle. These two “She-brews from Scarsdale” drop crazy Jewish verse, insulting each other with references to Birthright, AEPi and seder plates.

‘Remember That We Suffered’

‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ (2017)


At a bar mitzvah in Scarsdale, Rebecca’s childhood rabbi (Patti LuPone) and over-the-top mother (Tovah Feldshuh) prove that even during celebration, trauma is never too far from the Jewish psyche. This horah contains “the sweet and the bitter / Streisand and Hitler.”

Best line: “When I say ‘We,’ you say ‘Suffered’ / We — Suffered! / We — Suffered!”

‘Historically Accurate Disney Princess Song’

YouTube (2013)


Bloom offers a feminist send-up of Disney fairy tales as she searches for her prince in a medieval village decimated by the plague where Jews hide in the forest out of fear for their lives.

Best line: “Oh look everyone! It’s my friends from the forest — The Jews! Hello Jews! … Tell me, have you ever had a dream you thought wouldn’t come true? Oh I see, your dream is that people won’t want to kill you. Well, that’s definitely a dream that won’t come true!”
