Where Jewish Women Converse (on Television)

The Sisterhood blog is one forum in which Jewish women of different ages, denominations and political ideologies can debate issues of communal importance. “The Salon,” produced by The Jewish Channel and hosted by Forward editor Jane Eisner with media critic Rachel Sklar, is another. In this newly available episode, the panel — made up of comedian Judy Gold, filmmaker Lacey Schwartz and Nancy Falchuk, Hadassah’s national president — takes on Sarah Palin’s unpopularity among Jewish women, Israeli breast cancer advocates’ exclusion from a recent international cancer summit and the implications of supermodels strutting their stuff on behalf of Jewish organizations, among other topics. Watch the promo here, then tune into The Jewish Channel for the episode in full:

A message from our editor-in-chief Jodi Rudoren
