Joshua Silverstein — is an actor, comedian, and beatboxer who in 2019 performed in the Bay Area run of “True Colors,” an ensemble show about the experiences of Jews of color.

“Part of being proudly Jewish to me means fighting for the truth, that our differences, not just our similarities, make us human and that every group should feel safe.”–Joshua Silverstein

Listen to Joshua speak about being proudly Jewish on the Aish Unpacked series: 



About Unpacked: People are complex and complicated — yet we’re constantly being pushed to oversimplify our world. At Unpacked we know that being complex makes us more interesting. Because of this, we break the world down with nuance and insight to drive your curiosity and challenge your thinking.

The Silversteins — Joshua; his wife Cinthya, who is Mexican American; and their three children, Ami, Laila, and Shel — can be seen on Season 1, Episode 3 of “Home Sweet Home” a new life-swapping show by Emmy-winning and Academy Award-nominated Executive Producer Ava DuVernay. The family may well have been the first multiracial Jewish family to make a primetime appearance on American network television.
