The Academy Awards have been announced and two films with Jewish content received nods in the foreign-language category: “Beaufort” http://www.kino.com/beaufort/], a film about Israeli soldiers in Southern Lebanon by Israeli director Joseph Cedar, and the upcoming release “The Counterfeiters” based on the true story of Salomon Sorowitsch, known as “Hitler’s Jewish counterfeiter.” We previewed the latter film when it debuted in German cinemas.

"But Will They Split the Jewish Vote?" Your question means that Jews at the academy vote for film with "Jewish" contents. They don't. Many a film with Jewish content won naty a vote.
