Tele, originates from the Greek language meaning far off or distant. Totalis is a Medieval Latin word that describes the ‘whole entire’ and gives us the modern word of Total.

Firebrand Essayist, Novelist, and Law Professor Thane Rosenbaum launches a new editorial opinion show this month. ‘What Others Won’t Say’ launched April 1st to rave reviews. The three minute segment is a bite, wink and smirk—and not a rant. Three minutes to bring out one or two smiles and a little head spin. At least one head spin came from YouTube, who banned it within 24 hours, yet wisely at least partially reinstated it after numerous appeals. The irony of an OpEd about Jews being told to sit down and shut up being itself censored and shut down was not lost on JTVC fans.

David Halahmy joins JTVC as Education Contributor
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 Aging Jew
The Torah is full of stories relating to the lives of elderly Jews. Aside from the incredible life span from Adam, the first man, through to Noah from the story of the flood; later generations seemed to be endowed with longevity.
Abraham, the forefather of the Jewish people lived to 175 years old. His son Isaac outlived his father by an extra 5 years, living to 180 years old. Jacob, the son of Isaac lived to 147 years old. Israel was the spiritual name given to Jacob, and accordingly the Children of Israel also known as Jews, have much to live up to being his descendants. The Torah carries many stories about the hard life Jacob endures as he worked well into his senior years to provide food and shelter for his growing family. It was not uncommon to hear about later generations following Jacob’s example in working throughout a long and eventful life.
Fast forward to our own time period and a vastly different picture emerges. The prospect of elderly Jews being assigned to a retirement home is not necessarily restricted to Jacob’s later day descendants, as it follows a global trend. However, beyond assisted living, Jews today have a myriad of events and activities to occupy their time and interests. With a focus on healthy living it is common to see many senior citizens participate in physical activities from walking to more vigorous exercise. The entertainment industry provides many shows specially geared for the elderly. In fact the leisure industry recognizes the monetary importance of catering for an audience that enjoys to be entertained in style.
Senior Jews in particular appear to be moving away from the more restricted activities and events of previous generations who’s focus seemed to be more on a survival mode. Jewish TV Channel will shortly be opening a channel dedicated for an older audience that prefers to live by the Jewish tradition of celebrating life – l’chaim!

Isaiah Edwin Leopold (November 9, 1886 – June 19, 1966), better known as Ed Wynn, was an American actor and comedian. He was noted for his Perfect Fool comedy character, his pioneering radio show of the 1930s, and his later career as a dramatic actor. Wynn began his career in vaudeville in 1903 and was a star of the Ziegfeld Follies starting in 1914. During The Follies of 1915, W. C. Fields allegedly caught Wynn mugging for the audience under the table during Fields’s Pool Room routine and knocked Wynn unconscious with his cue.
Wynn wrote, directed, and produced many Broadway shows in the subsequent decades, and was known for his silly costumes and props as well as for the giggly, wavering voice he developed for the 1921 musical revue The Perfect Fool.
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.
New York's Diverse Jewish Communities Pt 2.
FROM A JEW'S VIEW
Jews in New York City comprise approximately 9 percent of the city’s population, making the Jewish community the largest in the world outside of Israel. As of 2016, 1.1 million Jews lived in the five boroughs of New York City, and over 1.75 million Jews lived in New York State overall.
Ultra-Orthodox Jewish residents in Brooklyn, nicknamed “the most Jewish spot on Earth”, and home to the world’s largest Jewish community, which with over 600,000 adherents living in the borough, greater than both Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. Judaism is the second-largest religion practiced in New York City, with approximately 1.6 million adherents as of 2022, representing the largest Jewish community of any city in the world, greater than the combined totals of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.
Nearly half of the city’s Jews live in Brooklyn. The ethno-religious population makes up 18.4% of the city and its religious demographic makes up 8%. The first recorded Jewish settler was Jacob Barsimson, who arrived in August 1654 on a passport from the Dutch West India Company. Following the assassination of Alexander II of Russia, for which many blamed “the Jews”, the 36 years beginning in 1881 experienced the largest wave of Jewish immigration to the United States.
While there can be a common misconception that Jewish New Yorkers are a breed unto themselves, the facts tell a different story. Total Vision on Jewish TV Channel brings you a look at two very diversified communities, both of which consider themselves to be Jewish. In JTVC’s April edition our Community Spotlight introduced you to an Orthodox sect opposed to Israel, and a Reform movement entity, together sharing the busy and congested streets of New York City. This month we look at the history behind New York Jews.
