The Jewish Journey: America traces Jewish immigration to America through the centuries. The one-hour documentary is the latest PBS commission from Emmy award-winning director Andrew Goldberg (A Yiddish World Remembered, The Armenian Genocide). 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.
