In this televised miniseries, director David Grubin charts the ongoing struggles of Jewish Americans to find acceptance while honoring their culture -- from their arrival in a fledgling New Amsterdam to prejudices that persist in the present day. Liev Schreiber narrates a centuries-long tale that includes interviews with the likes of Carl Reiner, Mandy Patinkin, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sid Caesar and Abigail Van Buren ("Dear Abby").
