“I thought about ‘The Jewish Americans’ for days after viewing it.”
– Los Angeles Times

“There’s no need to call [The Jewish Americans] a mitigated success; it’s an emphatic one. Some of it is interesting, much of it is fascinating, and parts of it are truly aglow – with the Jewish spirit, with American bravado and, inevitably in telling such a story, with the human condition.”
– Washington Post

“Grubin has punctuated the six hours with enough intriguing elements so that to enjoy it, you don’t have to be Jewish.”
– Daily Variety

“No matter how much you think you know about the subject, I guarantee you will learn something from this fascinating series.”
