Not a Fan of Bruno Mars? Tune in to The Kosher Super Bowl Halftime Show

Those not too fond of the Red Hot Chili Peppers or Bruno Mars may be excited to learn that a Jewish radio network will be hosting its own alternative halftime show — a “kosher” one.

The Nachum Segal Network has announced that it will be airing an alternative show featuring Jewish stars Lenny Solomon, Shlock Rock, Avromie Weisberger, Jonathan Rimberg, Ari Boianguiu and Ethan Bill. And like the official halftime show, the network says it might have a few surprises.

The 20-minute video, which will coincide with the Super Bowl’s official halftime show, will also be available on their website, Youtube channel and Facebook page after the show, JNS reported.

“The halftime show is a key component of the big game, and the NFL consistently brings the biggest names in contemporary music to play on the main stage. The only issue is that those acts often don’t appeal to the Jewish crowd,” radio host Nachum Segal was quoted saying in JNS. “We are proud to be providing a quality, kosher alternative that will entertain Jewish audiences and maintain a family-oriented vibe even during halftime.”

Believe it or not, the Nachum Segal Network’s show won’t be the first kosher halftime alternative.

Yashiva University has produced videos for the past two years featuring professors from the educational institution speaking about the spiritual side of sports.

Last year’s event was advertised with: “Forget the commercials – Are you ready for some — Torah?!”
