The Jewish community has much to gain from an exploration and utilization of television's depictions of Jews and particularly the issues of intermarriage, assimilation, and Jewish identity. Television can be used as a resource to reach nonaffiliated Jews and to communicate ideas and values. Jewish communal leaders should help guide others to view television critically and to work to enhance positive Jewish televimages.
