OUR CAMPUSES HAVE BECOME A BATTLEFRONT FOR MISEDUCATION
ANTISEMITISM DISCUSSED BY OUR HONORED GUEST TAMMI ROSSMAN - BENJAMIN Live on this Month's Edition of Total Vision
Hear conversations with Laura Kessler
The Jewish Diaspora, as a whole entity, is in turmoil. Anti-Semitism is not only on the rise but regarded as the norm in the most enlightened of societies. The loss of vast swathes of the Jewish landscape away from its ancestral heritage is beyond mere commentary. Parents have grieved over their children’s abandonment of Judaism for several decades, as assimilation only worsens. What of the plight of those who stubbornly resist temptation and pursue the path followed by their elders? Campuses have become breeding grounds for bullying, abuse, mindless violence against those identifiable as members of the Jewish race. The work place has placed obstacles on those wishing to observe Shabbat, Jewish holidays and other essential rights of Judaism. City streets, subways, etc. have increasingly witnessed acts of wretchedness towards our brothers and sisters.
How is Anti-Semitism justified in today’s society of the righteous?
Despite the fact that Jews are also known as the Children of Israel, with an unassailable connection with Israel, it is that very association that is being used as a means of justifying attacks against the Jewish people. In the penultimate act of this unfolding drama, Jews are turning against Israel itself, believing that will cure their problems.
Despair is rampant!

Smuggling Jewish Refugees
Aliyah Bet was the code name given to illegal immigration by Jews, most of whom were refugees escaping from Nazi Germany, and later Holocaust survivors, to Mandatory Palestine between 1920 and 1948, in violation of the restrictions laid out in the British White Paper of 1939, which dramatically increased between 1939 and 1948. Daniel Fliegler tells the riveting story of his father’s shared command of a ship tasked with smuggling these survivors onto the shores of Palestine, after evading numerous naval blockades.
Is this the Golden Age of Jewish Grassroots?

The Mossad Agent’s Trail
Zvi Zamir, Head of the Mossad, Intelligence, and Special Operations entrusted “Tarzan” with the mission of assisting freedom fighters in southern Sudan between 1969-1972. This was unequivocally a legitimate war for the purpose of righting generations of wrongdoing: slavery and the slave trade, humiliating exploitation, violation of human dignity, and depriving millions of their liberty – all for imperial control and territorial and economic gain. Tarzan carried out the mission with impressive success.
Knowledge Subdues The Liar
An Inner Love For Israel Justifies His Quest To Share The Truth
Mordechai Kedar was born in Tel Aviv. His Polish-Jewish parents moved to Mandatory Palestine in the 1930s. Kedar’s first language was Yiddish. Kedar is a Religious Zionist and an expert in Israeli Arab culture. He served for 25 years in IDF Military Intelligence, where he specialized in Islamic groups, the political discourse of Arab countries, the Arabic press and mass media, and the Syrian domestic arena. He holds a Ph.D. from Bar-Ilan University. He is fluent in Hebrew, Arabic, and English. He is described as “one of the few Arabic-speaking Israeli pundits seen on Arabic satellite channels defending Israel”.Since 2012, Kedar has promoted a Palestinian-Israeli peace plan referred to as the “Palestinian Emirates” or “Eight-State Solution”. This solution is based on the sociology of the Middle East, which has the tribe as the major cornerstone of society. ‘We should follow this characteristic of Middle Eastern culture as the basis for the Israeli-Palestinian solution.’ He says that the Western-style nation-state structures imposed on regions inhabited by multiple tribes are failed or failing, whereas states based on homogenous tribes such as the United Arab Emirates can succeed.
Jewish TV Channel adopts a broad definition of what constitutes a hero, in relation to serving the Jewish people and Israel. As this series evolves don’t be surprised to recognize a family member, a close friend, or just someone you’ve heard about in your local community, who’s profile is shared on our platform. Heroes can be about people leading ordinary lives faced with challenging situations. It is often about someone who serves a community with absolute devotion and dedication that we sometimes err in taking him or her for granted. And, it is also about those who have faced a dangerous predicament, while serving our best interests.
The Jew And Health
Ascribing to good health is evident in the very make up of the Jewish psyche, our Torah teaches us the importance of observing the most holiest day of the year, the Sabbath. Yet, with the stringent conditions under which it is forbidden to break Sabbath observance, there is one major exception. Should the life of a Jew be at risk it is forbidden ‘not’ to do everything humanly possible to preserve that life, even breaking Sabbath laws. Health is one such condition that can be life threatening, and the daily routine of looking after ones’ mental and physical well-being is regarded as a fundamental factor in living a health Jewish life. It is the Jewish way to be concerned about the well-being of others, hence we now better understand why so many of us follow a career in medicine to alleviate the sufferings of those less well off.
Lifestyle is a matter of perception when getting the Total Vision into sharp focus.

Alla Nazimova May 22 1879 – July 13, 1945) was a Russian-American actress, director, producer and screenwriter.
On Broadway, she was noted for her work in the classic plays of Ibsen, Chekhov and Turgenev. She later moved on to film, where she served many production roles, both writing and directing films under pseudonyms. Her film Salome (1922) is regarded as a cultural landmark.
Nazimova was bisexual and openly conducted relationships with women while being married to a man. She created the Garden of Allah hotel, which became a retreat for many celebrities of the time. She is credited with having originated the phrase “sewing circle” as a discreet code for lesbian or bisexual actresses.
Jewish Evolution of the Theatre
In our contemporary society it is easy to imagine that we created a diverse and colorful sub-culture by ourselves. Total Vision will not only destroy this myth, but also introduce you to the amazing world of Jewish entertainers that literally rocked the foundation of their civilized environment. We are talking about the vaudeville beauty that rode apparently in the nude in front of a large family audience. Then there’s the talented female actress that openly had bisexual relations, with her husbands’ knowledge. Have you heard of the Sewing Circle? I guess not, but this same star founded a luxurious refuge for other lesbians. Surely, this must be in our own time period? Not even close!
Take a front seat as JTVC presents some of the earliest known stars of the theatre, dating from the end of the nineteenth century, that’s well over a hundred years ago.
