Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: “Hollywood”

“Like most religions and cults, Hollywood has both idols and worshippers, and a hierarchy not unlike that of a church.


Its leaders do not have glorious titles such as Archbishop or Grand Lama, settling instead on being executives, producers, and directors.


Even so, the lack of high-sounding titles and fancy dress do not hamper them from being rulers—sometimes absolute rulers—of their world.


Like a church, Hollywood has active and passive members; some people make the rules, and others comply with them.


There are the acolytes and the priests of the cult, and the multitude of worshippers.”
