Finally, ShalomTV on Cablevision!

The best things in life are worth the wait. And so it is with ShalomTV, the America's national Jewish cable television network covering the panorama of Jewish life, created by good friend and Stamford's Own Rabbi Mark Golub. See Rabbi Golub's exciting announcement at Beginning this coming Monday, Cablevision subscribers will be able to access ShalomTV free on demand on Cablevision Channel 502 and select "News and World."

ShalomTV has broadcast a number of events from TBE, including recent Hoffman lectures - look for them to pop up on the menu from time to time.

Here is how the website describes ShalomTV's wide array of programming:

On Shalom TV, individuals who enjoy Jewish film festivals can watch Jewish movies, Israeli films, and Yiddish classics. Shalom TV also airs Jewish theme feature films distributed by Sony pictures (e.g. Avalon, Garden of the Finzi Continis, Lies My Father Told Me, Me and the Colonel).

On Shalom TV, those interested in the State of Israel can watch English-language news from the Middle East with an Israeli perspective, as well as hear leading Jewish minds debate issues of importance to the Jewish state.

On Shalom TV, viewers hear brilliant Jewish personalities address world issues, as well as have a front-row seat at major Jewish activities, presentations, exhibitions, and performances. Several of these programs are from the famous 92nd Street Y in New York City.

On Shalom TV, anyone with a passion for learning can watch various programs on the Jewish tradition (from "Jewish 101" to a "Daf Yomi" study of Talmud), Kabbalah, Jewish history (with documentaries), Hebrew lessons, Jewish cooking, and other wonderful facets of Jewish life.

On Shalom TV, parents find children's programs that introduce young people to Jewish traditions, the Hebrew language, Jewish songs, and history of the Jewish people.
