Jewish Americans have made quite a contribution over the years in their adopted country. From science to music to the performing arts to business, people of Jewish faith have made their mark. Narrated by Liev Schreiber, this particular PBS series uses interviews, eye-catching graphics and beautiful music to tell the tale. The interviews are with individuals (famous or not) and their families/descendents.
Jews have an over 350 year history in the United States. An especially interesting time in Jewish history in America starts around the World War II period and the War and the Holocaust are examined in the series. How it affected survivors and other Jews is looked at. It shows how Jewish culture has adapted to the new environment and evolved. How they have integrated into the mainstream while keeping their culture is fascinating. Any question you have about Jewish Americans will be answered during the course of this six part series.
