The first Jewish-themed genealogy television series will air in the fall on Jewish Life Television (JLTV) and is being produced by New York City’s Museum of Jewish Heritage along with its affiliate, the non-profit organization and website JewishGen.
The show, called Generations, will dive deep in the Jewish lineage of its guests. The show’s host will be JLTV Executive Vice President Brad Pomeranc.
The premiere episode will feature actress Camryn Manheim and her son, actor Milo Manheim. They will learn about their Jewish family roots through artifacts including objects, documents and photographs. The episode will also feature conversations with Camryn’s brother, Karl Manheim, and their 97-year-old mother Sylvia Manheim, who will talk about Camryn and Karl’s maternal and paternal family history.
Th announcement about Generations follows news from the Museum of Jewish Heritage about its plans to establish the Peter and Mary Kalikow Jewish Genealogy Research Center, where visitors will be able to use computer stations to access JewishGen’s genealogy resources as well as the museum’s records and data to learn more about their own Jewish ancestry.
