SLIDE TIME BAR TO 22:20 TO SEE CLIP BEGINNING


Shelomo Alfassa was filmed at the Center for Jewish History by CUNY TV, channel 75, a cable channel serving the five boroughs of New York City with educational, cultural and public affairs programs. The topic was 'Hispanic Jews' in New York City. The discussion spoke of the once 25,000 Spanish speaking Jews that came from the Balkans, Ottoman Greece and Turkey to America in the early 20th century. Alfassa advised the interviewer that the first Department of Hispanics was founded at Columbia University by a Sephardic Jew from Turkey and other little-known facts.

As part of The City University of New York, CUNY TV operates as a non-commercial station. Its mission is to extend the academic and intellectual richness of the University beyond the campuses and to offer New York City residents a haven for life long learning experiences through television.
