LONDON – Last week saw the launch of J-TV, a global Jewish YouTube channel, in a packed House of Commons events room, as the division bells summoned members of Parliament to vote.
The channel, founded by British student Oliver Anisfeld, aims, he says, to help “Jewish people to see the beauty of their heritage.”
J-TV serves as response to what Anisfeld sees as a gap in dealing with a crisis of Jewish education in the UK and many other countries. Speaking to The Jerusalem Post at the parliamentary event on Wednesday evening, Anisfeld commented: “I think there’s a real need for this. We’ve got to relate to the mediums that people are using. There really is nothing like it for the Jewish community.”
