America: The Jewish Journey on DVD

THE JEWISH JOURNEY: AMERICA traces Jewish immigration to America through the centuries. The film is narrated by Emmy Award-winning journalist Martha Teichner of CBS News. Unlike other immigrant stories, Jewish-American history has been rooted in an ever-changing “Old Country” (South America, Europe, Russia, North Africa, and the Middle East to name a few). 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, with a rarely explored look at the actual journeys to get here.
