Since 1976, The National Center for Jewish Film has rescued, restored,
distributed and exhibited films that document the diversity and
vibrancy of Jewish life.
The Center’s archive collection of 15,000 reels of film is the world’s
largest outside of Israel. To date, NCJF has restored 100 endangered
“orphan” films, including 44 Yiddish and silent feature films. These
rare films are screened worldwide and are key building blocks in
hundreds of new documentaries, educational projects and museum
Long recognized as a world leader in the collection and exhibition of
Jewish film and culture, NCJF provides programming and research
consultation to 7,000 artists, educators and curators each year.
NCJF needs your help. Thousands of films exclusively owned by the
Center are in critical need of preservation and digitization. The film-to-
film restoration of 35mm, 16mm and 8mm film is extremely costly.
Without your support, these rapidly deteriorating moving images
will fade into history.
Become a “Reel Funder” with as generous a gift as your circumstances
permit. Help save these precious documents for future generations.
Consider saving a film in honor or in memory of family and friends.
