Well, it’s not quite in the same vein or of the same tone as Judd Apatow’s public service announcement for the American Jewish World Service, but it does feature a few celebrities.

The Jewish Partisan Educational Foundation’s brand new PSA has Liev Schreiber, Larry King and Edward Zwick — along with a former partisan and her granddaughter — inviting the public to JPEF’s tribute dinner scheduled for November 7 in New York. In particular, these celebrities are asking the public to spread the word about the tribute to any partisans who are still alive and to their families and friends. JPEF hopes to have as many former partisans as possible attend the dinner to be honored, along with all partisans who fought the Nazis and their collaborators in WWII.

You will recognize Edward Zwick as having directed the 2008 feature film “Defiance” about the Bielski brothers, a family of partisans in the Belarusian forests who saved approximately 1,000 Jews. Liev Schreiber played the hot-headed Zus Bielski in the film.

Don’t remember Larry King being in that movie? Neither do we.
