Stereotypes only have negative connotations when used in a prejudicial way to demean a particular group of people. But the Jewish characters in “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” are wonderful stereotypes putting on display all of their cultural idiosyncrasies, good and bad, funny and irritating. They are authentically neurotic, self-defeating at times, guilt-ridden most of the time, but always ready to celebrate a common love of laughter, music and food. In my opinion, the writer’s notion that this wonderful series with Jewish stereotypes could somehow encourage anti-Semitism, is simply wrongheaded.
