The Jewish Journey: America

The Jewish Journey: America explores what it meant to be part of a tight-knit Jewish community and make the heartbreaking choice to leave family behind, whether for economic opportunity or to escape persecution. Incredible archival photographs and footage bring to life the personal stories of first to fourth generation Americans who took a leap of faith and made it to America however they could.

Interviews with top scholars in Jewish history, notable Jewish-American writers, and many immigrants themselves detail the varied stories of migration through the last five centuries and an ever-changing ""Old Country"" (including South America, Europe, Russia, North Africa, and the Middle East), with a rarely-explored look at the actual journeys to get here. Narrated by Emmy Award®-winning journalist Martha Teichner, the film follows the trajectory of Jewish American life from the earliest arrivals in the mid-17th century through the impact of the Nazi regime in World War II, the creation of Israel, and the new challenges of 21st century assimilation.

Extended Interviews include…
- Rabbi Brad Hirschfield
- Rabbi Malka Drucker
- Martin Greenfield
- Joseph Berger
- Dr. Arnold Richards

VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS

Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
