The Jewish Americans


“Earnest, lively… all-encompassing”
–Ned Martel, The New York Times


The Jewish Americans: is a documentary series that explores 350 years of Jewish American history. Written and directed by award-winning filmmaker David Grubin and narrated by actor Liev Schreiber, the program tells a story of great achievement despite great odds. From the first settlement in the 17th century to the present, the six-hour PBS series is a journey in time.While the story of Jewish life in America is emblematic of the American immigrant story, it is also a story of how a people overcame discrimination and eventually created some of the most remarkable accomplishments in American history, arts, commerce, science and academia.


Bernier edited Part 2: A World of Their Own and co-edited Part 3: The Best of Times, The Worst of Times of this series.
