How did JEM start?

In the summer of 1980, an enterprising young Chassid had a novel idea: What if he could find a way to broadcast the Rebbe’s Farbrengens on live television?

With the Rebbe’s blessing, a new organization was born. Their mission: to bring the Rebbe’s teachings to the wider world, by using the cutting-edge broadcasting technology of the time. They called it Jewish Educational Media (JEM).

Today, JEM’s staff includes scholars, producers, translators, researchers, video editors, archivists, developers and social media editors working from all around the world. The team is dedicated to the publication of video, audio and photos of the Rebbe.
