“I travel the world watching television and selling programs to the most important broadcasters on the planet (BBC, Discovery, National Geographic) and I must say that Moses has built VisionTV into one of the world’s most prolific broadcasters of programs exposing mass atrocities, religious persecution and intolerance around the world.” – Simcha Jacobovici, Emmy Award winning director, producer, investigative journalist, TV host and New York Times best-selling author

Libby Znaimer is joined by a panel of Jewish and non-Jewish clergy, and community activists to ask the questions why, why now and what is to be done?
