NCJF’s first priority continues to be the preservation
and restoration of rare and endangered nitrate and
acetate films.

NCJF has restored more than 100 films, including 38 Yiddish features films.

NCJF has long been recognized as the leader in the revival of Yiddish cinema, rescuing watershed films like The Dybbuk (1937) and Tevye (1939) from virtual oblivion.

By producing and distributing pristine film and DVD editions of such historic works with new English subtitles, NCJF reintroduces modern audiences to a unique cultural and cinematic experience.

NCJF is the world's only source for restored Yiddish films with English subtitles.
