Song of a Jewish Cowboy is a 2002 documentary about Scott Gerber, a rancher and musician from Sonoma County, California, who sings cowboy music and Yiddish folk songs. The documentary shows clips from his performances and a personal interview with Scott.


Scott's parents were socialist chicken ranchers who moved to Petaluma, California. Scott also went into chicken ranching and then dabbled in shearing sheep. He was instilled with a love of his Jewish heritage from his mother and grandmother, and sings many of the songs they taught him. Much of the documentary focuses on the perceptions of others to the differences between Scott's appearance and the music he sings.
