“Unity of Differences,” a multi-image documentary produced by the United Jewish Appeal, was awarded a Silver Medal in the 1980 International Film and TV Festival in New York City. The documentary, written, composed and directed by Issachar Miron, director of the UJA’s Creative and Educational Programs Department, won the honor in the category of “inspirational audio-visual documentaries with public message.”

“Unity of Differences,” was originally produced for presentation to the UJA 1980 International Conference and shown at the Jewish Museum in New York. It relates the story of how the New York City Jewish community was organized and grew to become a source of inspiration to Jews around the world.

Requiring a stereo tape recorder, six slide projectors, two film projectors and three screens, the 17-minute production was narrated by Edward Warburg, a member of the family who donated its Fifth Avenue mansion to house the Jewish Museum. The film segments were executed by Performance Design, Inc.
