Mordechai Jefferson Carver, aka the Hebrew Hammer, is an orthodox Jewish stud who goes on a mission to save Hanukkah. When Santa Claus's evil son Damian is pushed over the edge by his father's liberal policies, he does away with the Christian patriarch. Subsequently stepping into his father's role, Damian launches a campaign to eradicate the Jewish Holiday. The Hammer joins forces with Esther Bloomenbergensteinenthal, the gorgeous and dangerous daughter of the leader of the Jewish Justice League; and his brother-in-arms Mohammed Ali Paula Abdul Rahim, the head of the Kwanzaa Liberation Front, to topple Santa's evil progeny and to save Hanukkah for future generations of Jews.

Adam Goldberg claims that he knew he had to do this movie as soon as he read the line "Shabbat shalom, motherfuckers!" See more »
In the scene where Mordechai is using his tefillin as a grappling hook, he can be seen wearing them on his right arm and hand. Because tefillin are wound around the non-dominant arm, this would only be correct if Mordechai is left-handed; in the next scene he is holding a gun in his right hand. See more »
I am Jewish, so when I heard of this concept I felt that I had to see it. The movie was just flat out filled with laughs. The Hebrew Hammer is displayed as a cool styled Jewish private investigator. He joins with the Jewish Justice League as Damien Claus (Andy Dick) is on the verge of destroying Channukah and possibly Kwanzaa. With a pretty memorable performance from Adam Goldberg as the Hammer himself. Most of the lines become pretty memorable and even if you are Jewish and find the content too risky for your liking, you still have no choice but to laugh at the guys Star of David hood ornament as well as other things, like the Star of David spurs on his boots. The movie is definitely not for everyone. The content may offend those who celebrate Channukah, Christmas, Kwanzaa and are Jewish. But even for me being a Jew, I can't help but just sit back and laugh at humor like this.
