Shalom TV made national television news last night–albeit on the comedy channel–when Samantha Bee of “The Daily Show” featured the Jewish-oriented network in her report called “This Week In God.”
After playing a Shalom TV clip in which Rabbi Mark S. Golub welcomes viewers to “the first national Jewish television network in America,” Ms. Bee exclaimed: “Finally a television network run by Jews!”
Segments from two original Shalom TV series were also played for the audience: “Out of the Mouth of Zion,” a no-holds-barred public affairs forum hosted by award-winning journalist Sidney Zion; and “Mr. Bookstein’s Store,” a children’s program filled with music, stories, and learning.
“Jon Stewart is among the brightest social humorists in America today and his show’s bit on Shalom TV was extremely well done,” said Rabbi Golub, network president & CEO. “Awareness of Shalom TV has grown exponentially since our launch in late summer and we are naturally flattered to be lampooned by one of the most popular programs on cable television.”
