Founded in 1980 to broadcast the public addresses of the Rebbe, of righteous memory, live via satellite around the world, Jewish Educational Media has evolved into the multimedia archive responsible for maintaining a lifetime of images and sounds of the Rebbe, the Lubavitch movement, and Jewish outreach.
Today, JEM operates a one-of-its kind motion picture, audio and photographic archive serving researchers, scholars and producers.
Since 1996, its production division has released over one hundred broadcast-quality educational and documentary productions. Its flagship product, The Living Torah DVD Collection is viewed by nearly 100,000 people around the world every week, and is released in English, Hebrew, French, Spanish, Russian and Portuguese.
JEM operates from its production center in Brooklyn, and employs a full-time staff of 15 producers, video editors, researchers, archivists and translators.
