Jews of New York

The symbiotic relationship between a people and a city is nostalgically portrayed in The Jews of New York. From the earliest immigrants through current day, narrator Tovah Feldshuh weaves a tapestry of the Jewish community and the impact it has had on the secular face of New York – from medicine to politics, from finance to Broadway and from real estate to retail. The film includes interviews with “Hizzoner” Ed Koch, Joe Stein and Sheldon Harnick (the playwright and lyricist of Fiddler on the Roof); David and Drew Schiff (the great grandson and great great grandson of Jacob Schiff); Dr. Arthur Aufses of Mount Sinai Medical Center; Hasidic Rabbi Haskel Besser, and three generations of the Russ and Daughters Delicatessen – representing the quintessential ‘flavor’ of New York.
