A Storm of Strangers

A rich portrait of the teeming Jewish “ghetto” that was New York’s Lower East Side at the turn of the century.  Narrated by Herschel Bernardi, this classic film uses period photographs to create the fictional story of Manya, a young Jewish woman, whose life is turned around by the tragic Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire of 1911.  Manya’s life is the chronicle of a struggle to maintain dignity despite poverty and the determination to enable the next generation to “rise above their origins.” Truly inspiring!

Jewish American Patriots
 
T
he Revolutionary War, the Civil War, and the two World Wars are well known to most Americans from elementary school on up. How many people, however, are aware of the fact that since 1654, Jewish Americans have fought right alongside their fellow compatriots for the freedom and justice they all so cherished. Through archival photos and expert testimonials, this documentary traces the heroic acts of such famous Jewish American patriots as Asher Levy, Haym Salomon, Commodore Uriah Phillips Levy and Sgt. Leopold Karpeles. The video also contains interviews with Jewish war veterans, heroes from World War II, Korea, Vietnam and Operation Desert Storm. The dedication and patriotism of the century old Jewish War Veterans organization is also examined in this fascinating video. 

"...blends film, photography, narration and music effectively, evoking a reflective documentary style."-Intermountain News
