Jewish Life Television, www.jltv.tv, today announced the launch of America Undiscovered, its new primetime weekly series sharing uplifting examples about Jewish Americans. Debuting Sunday, February 12 at 9pm Eastern and Pacific Time, each 30-minute episode will share inspiring stories about Jews throughout North America trying to preserve their heritage: http://www.americaundiscoveredjltv.com/watch-sizzle-reel.
“We’re taking viewers on a cross country adventure to meet amazing people in communities and places you’d never expect who are passionate about keeping Judaism alive,” said Susan Neisloss, host and executive producer of America Undiscovered. “It seems like every time you turn on the news, you see some form of intolerance or hatred. It’s a fact that anti-Semitism is rising – our show spotlights inspiring Jewish Americans, more important now than ever.” According to a 2016 study by the non-profit group, AMCHA, there was a 45% jump in anti-Semitic incidents on college campuses in the past 12 months.
Of America’s 320 million people, approximately 2% are Jewish and that number is in danger of decreasing especially given assimilation and apathy among younger Jews. America Undiscovered also is intended to inspire more Jewish Americans to become proactive in embracing their identity at a time when only one in five consider themselves Jewish.
JLTV, launched in 2006, is the first and only 24/7 Jewish-themed television network with a diversity of cultural, educational, entertainment, and public affairs programming. The network is available in more than 47 million households in all 50 states on major providers such as, DirecTV, Spectrum, Comcast, Charter, Bright House and online in 127 countries.
Additional information is available on the show’s website, www.americaundiscoveredjltv.com.
