Join LILRC as we welcome Jack Kliger, President and CEO of The Museum of Jewish Heritage, Avraham Groll, Executive Director of JewishGen, and Brad Pomerance, Host and Executive Vice President, Jewish Life Television (JLTV) to learn about a new partnership.
Using the digital resources of JewishGen, the historical resources of the Museum of Jewish Heritage, and the production resources of JLTV, a new television series, Generations will unravel centuries-old family histories. This program will explore the resources available for research at MJH and JewishGen and the stories being told with them.
Generations will be anchored by Brad Pomerance, host of award-winning television programs such as Air Land & Sea on JLTV, Uncovered in the Archives on KVCR in Southern California, and formerly Local Edition on HLN. Brad has received several awards for his work from the American Psychological Association’s Society of Media Psychology, Los Angeles Press Club, Religion Communicators Council, Religion News Association (1st Place, Outstanding Religion Documentary, 2021), Society of American Archivists, and Telly Awards.
“We look forward to partnering with JewishGen and JLTV, two pillars in the Jewish community, to bring this show to life. We hope this new series will provide moments of discovery to those we feature, and to broader audiences, where they will learn more about their ancestry and how to access the resources available. To better know who we are, we need to know where we came from. These personal stories will also provide opportunities to learn about many important moments and movements in Jewish history.” Jack Kliger, President and CEO of The Museum of Jewish Heritage.
“Helping people retrace their family history and strengthening their sense of Jewish identity aligns perfectly with JewishGen’s mission of being the global home for Jewish genealogy. This partnership is an ideal path to learn, to discover, and to grow, all while demonstrating how people can utilize our unique collection of records, and unparalleled historical and community focused resources on their own. It will demonstrate that Jewish Genealogy is accessible for anyone with a desire to gain a deeper understanding of their Jewish roots, no matter their level of familiarity or expertise.” Avraham Groll, Executive Director of JewishGen.
