About this project
IMPACT: Jewish Boxers in America will profile the lives of several great fighters that have brought noteriety to the sport and have used boxing to help them find and fulfill the American Dream. This is the story of Jewish men that have risen from nothing wearing the Star of David on their trunks and are conduits for the American success story---rising from nothing and using their raw fighting talents to establish themselves in our great society. It is also about the fight to end anti-semitism by showing a different side of Jewish culture that is triumphant and tradgic at the same time. These are brave men willing to risk it all to show the world their independence and will to survive while dismantling any notion that Jews are weak in the eyes of challengers. We will profile Jewish Boxers that include, Dmitry Salita, Cletis Seldin, Ed Gersh and Ron Lipton learning what makes them tick and why they've chosen boxing as their sport of choice. Masada shall not fall again in their eyes and they fight for what they believe is true. Coming in 2014. Airing on Cablevision and THE JEWISH CHANNEL.
