Institute for Jewish Policy Research (JPR), 1999

The authors (who form the JPR Working Party on Television) argue that there is a case for seriously considering television as a catalyst for reinvigorating contemporary Jewish culture. After examining five other minority-targeted channels around the world, the authors explore ideas and define possibilities for the content and tone of programs applicable to and appropriate for Jewish television. Ideally the channel would transmit informative and entertaining programs of Jewish interest, celebrate positive aspects of Judaism and Israel, enhance the lifestyle and activities of the Jewish community, serve as an educational aid to the young of the community, act as an easy information source concerning Jewish events and services, stimulate greater involvement in the Jewish community and identify and develop new creative talent within the Jewish community.
