or more than 25 years, Joel
Levitch has brought hun-
dreds of hours of high-quality
Jewish television programming to
the Detroit area via Comcast chan-
nel 18. He is the president and CEO
of National Jewish Television, whose
Sunday offerings are distributed live
from New York City to more than 40
million households nationwide via
satellite and cable television.
Now he has
teamed up with
another Jewish cable
network out of Los
Angeles and the
combined channel
— called Jewish Life
— is run-
ning 24 hours a day,
Joel Levitch
seven days a week.
And while the new network can be
seen in major markets like New York,
Chicago, Philadelphia, Los Angeles and
South Florida, it has yet to make its
appearance in Detroit.
Levitch recently paid a visit here in
an effort to spread the word about
JLTV, which is also live-streamed on the
Internet at www.jltv.tv and is available
on DirecTV channel 366. He is urging
people to write or call Comcast asking
for the Jewish channel to be added to
the cable lineup here in Detroit.
According to Comcast spokesperson
Mary Beth Halprin, "The company
does evaluate programming decisions
on a regular basis. Decisions about
the channel lineup are based upon a
number of factors, including customer
feedback requesting programming,
a potential network's ability to offer
unique programming that is cur-
rently not offered by other networks
today and contractual agreements that
impact viewing areas, among others:'
According to Levitch, program
offerings on JLTV run the gamut of
Jewish interests. The channel offers
two hours a day of news programming,
including a daily half-hour newscast in
English from Channel One in Israel. On
the entertainment side, there are con-
certs of all stripes — from classical to
Klezmer. Jewish nostalgia reigns as well.
"Our special programs include docu-
mentaries about Jewish history and
the Holocaust. As an example, we are
currently replaying the entire trial of
Adolph Eichmann. There is program-
ming for children as well, including
Rehov Sum Sum, the classic series from
Children's Television Workshop, featur-
ing the Muppets teaching the Aleph-
Bet and Jewish holidays:' he says.
