Yiddish Old Time Radio

There were many Jewish old time radio stars, but there were few old time radio series dedicated to Jewish family, faith, and tradition during the golden age of radio. Some of our favorites Yiddish old time radio series include:

The Goldbergs
Gertrude Berg created The Goldbergs in 1929, which became not only a well-loved soap opera, it introduced the goyim to Jewish life in America.

Edward G Robinson
The Eternal Light
Part of NBC's Sunday Religious Programming, The Eternal Light was sponsored by the Jewish Theological Seminary. This well-written religious drama was created by the Jewish Theological Seminary and features stories from the Torah, the Bible, and important historical texts.


The People Take the Lead
Working with the American Jewish Committee, this series moves to fight for Civil Rights and overcome misguided attitudes and beliefs in regular folks. 

Mama Bloom

Mama Bloom's Brood
Combining a road trip across America in the 1930s and a Jewish family situation comedy, Mama Bloom's Brood was one of the nationally broadcast shows which helped to influence the image of American Jews.

The Golden Door
After the terrors of the Holocaust, some fortunate survivors were invited to enter "the Golden Door" to America, but joining this new Society was not always easy.

Abies Irish Rose
Abie's Irish Rose
This likable old time radio comedy show is about the marriage between a Jewish man and an Irish Catholic lass.

Channukah in OTR
Hanukkah is commonly referred to as "the Festival of Lights" and the word means "to dedicate".

Yehudi Menuhin
Yehudi Menuhin
Yehudi Menuhin was a child prodigy on the violin,

and worked to help the German people recover their
cultural identity in the wake of the Holocaust.

Presidential Hanukkah Recordings
The basis for the eight day celebration of Hanukkah states that the Temple only had enough oil to keep one of its most ritual objects; the menorah lit for one day. However, the flame stayed alight for eight days until a new supply of oil could be found.
