Legacy Live is about giving people the opportunity to pass on
their values, personality, priorities and life story to their future generations.
Legacy Live is the multimedia division of JRoots, a non-profit organisation specialising in Holocaust education, Jewish heritage tours and passing on the values of past generations to present and future ones.
JRoots teaches thousands of young people about the Holocaust through trips to Poland accompanied by survivors. In late 2011, Rabbi Naftali Schiff, Founder and Director, had a broader vision.
He thought it could have even greater impact if they transformed hours of extensive trip footage into films. And so the first Legacy Live film was created, the highly regarded documentary “Your Faithfulness in the Night.” From there, the road was short to developing films and books about individuals and Legacy Live Productions was born.
Through our work we are able to spread timeless Jewish messages to enrich lives, make our communities stronger and show the world the values the Jewish people have to offer.
All Legacy Live profits are invested in furthering the aims of JRoots – educating Jewish youth about their past so they can create a better future.
