Jewish Heritage Video Collection

JHVCThe Center for Judaic Studies at the University of Denver invites you to explore Jewish themes using an exciting approach to Jewish education through media - The Jewish Heritage Video Collection (JHVC).

The JHVC is a lending library of over 200 titles, including feature films, documentaries, children’s programs, television series, and foreign films. These films deal with a wide-range of themes, from educating children on the basics of Judaism to educating adults on the realities of the Holocaust. The JHVC was donated as a gift of Martin and Colleen Frankel in loving memory of their son, Casey Frankel, and is now housed in Anderson Academic Commons at the University of Denver.

In 2014, CJS received a University Library Association Collection Development Grant to upgrade the original VHS donation to DVD. These DVDs are now available to all patrons of DU's library.

To access the JHVC, visit the DU library webpage to search for any of the titles listed in the drop down menus below.

If you are not affiliated with DU, please visit the lending services webpage to see how you can borrow from this collection or call the library at 303-871-3707.
