Total Vision

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. We hope you see what Vision means? Jewish TV Channel prefers to ‘share the vision’ of bringing Jewish communities closer together. So now you know what the TV stands for in JTVC. Total Vision is a monthly magazine for Jewish communities, which we hope you will enjoy!




Total Vision

Jewish TV Channel introduces its latest section especially for your enjoyment. Total Vision is a monthly digital magazine that promises to deliver more in keeping with the JTVC aim to update our content quality and delivery potential.

The first issue of Total Vision explores something very close to both the Jewish experience and how it shapes our world outlook. Waves of Despair in Rays of Hope will be our theme over the coming months. What does that mean exactly? Waves of Despair shares the obvious pain felt as Jews worldwide face the growing threat of Anti-Semitism, yet again. Rays of Hope presents the coming 75th Anniversary of the Children of Israel, that’s all of us, through the establishment of the state of Israel.

Ray of Hope

A child hides in a game of hide and seek, time passes and she’s still waiting, alone. Her friends have grown up and have sought other pursuits, while she still patiently waits.

Israel is celebrating its 75th Diamond Jubilee in 2023. How many remember a time, not so long ago, when Israel was the focal point of Jewish communities worldwide? The big brother was both all powerful, and something to be looked up to with pride and love. Alas, it seems that the majority of the Jewish Diaspora has moved on, engaged in its own world, where even the remote understanding of being in an entity called the Jewish Diaspora is forgotten.

After all is said and done, what is the Jewish Diaspora anyway? The Cambridge Dictionary defines the term ‘Diaspora’ as a group of people who spread from one original country to other countries, or the act of spreading in this way. Accordingly, in our context this is only a dispersal from the Jewish Homeland in Israel to foreign lands. Once that connection is broke, well, people get lost as far as where they think they belong, even if it is a Diaspora.

Regardless, the birthday child is patiently waiting – 75 years to be precise – and that’s just since the modern rebirth of the Jewish State of Israel!


Rays of Hope!       

The Jewish Diaspora and Israel are one, known as the Children of Israel.

Waves of Despair


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!

Aim for a better future by knowing what type of burdensome past needs to be changed.

David Bannister – JTVC Founder & CEO

David Lev Campaigner

David Lev Bannister leads a colorful life. In his early days as a singer & songwriter he was the first artist to be signed by John Lennon with the Beatle’s own publishing company. His compositions have appeared in film festivals, theatre and through various recording artists.

Since his arrival in Israel he has led a delegation of terror victims to the UK’s House of Commons, served as an officer in security combat units, participated in archaeological excavations, and importantly founded Jewish TV Channel.

The Lost. The Race.

Followers of Anti-Semitism are growing in their numbers and diminishing in their knowledge.



Hero's Trail

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.

Rudolph Marks wrote several plays in Yiddish and was described as a “well known and clever comedian”.

Marks arrived in New York aged 19, having spent four years in England after leaving Russia. In New York, he appeared with the Thalia Theatre and the United Hebrew Opera Company. By 1893, he was described as a “well known and clever comedian”,and was one of two contenders for the title of “most popular young actor” in a contest run by a New York newspaper. He wrote several plays in Yiddish, including The Bowery Tramp, “the great comedy success” Chaim in America, and The Shop Girl. By 1893, Marks had begun studying law at University of the city of New York, and was admitted to the bar in 1898. For some years, reports of court cases he appeared in described him as “better known as a writer of Yiddish plays and as an actor of Shakespearean parts in the Bowery theaters than as a lawyer”. He died in Manhattan on 6 May 1930

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.

Alaskan Jewish Community

The history of the Jews in Alaska began before the Alaska Purchase in 1867. Jews from Imperial Russia lived there periodically as fur traders, and a Jewish community has existed since the 1880s. The Klondike and Nome gold rushes attracted Jews to Alaska to seek their fortunes as miners and businessmen and resulted in the first organized Jewish communities. In the Nazi period, Jewish refugee resettlement in Alaska was seriously considered by the government, but after facing backlash, never came to be. Alaskan Jews played a significant role in business and politics before and after statehood, and have included mayors, judges, senators and governors. Today, there are Jews living in every urban area of the state.

The goal of Jewish TV Channel is to share the full picture with our community, which means getting the Total Vision.

Description is also the fiction-writing mode for transmitting a mental image of the particulars of a story.

The pattern of development that presents a word picture of a thing, a person, a situation, or a series of events.

The most appropriate and effective techniques for presenting description are a matter of ongoing discussion among writers and writing coaches.
