Watch The Jews of New York
The Jews of New York profiles Jewish individuals and institutions that changed the face of New York, woven together with expert commentary, to present a broad spectrum of the ways in which the Jewish community has impacted secular New York life from the earliest immigrants through today. These slices of Jewish life in New York reflect the larger community experience - what one people did for a city, and what the city did for them - from medicine to politics; from finance to Broadway; from real estate to retail, including a business that truly represents the quintessential 'flavor' of New York.
