This week is momentous. As you all know (or should know), Jon Stewart, king of the Jewish talk show hosts, is stepping down from “The Daily Show” after an epic 16-year run.

South African comedian Trevor Noah will replace him as host — but never in our hearts.

Jon’s imminent departure, combined with the end of “Chelsea Lately,” makes us worry that Jews are disappearing from the late night circuit. But lest you despair, we’ve compiled a list of some of his best (and most Jewish) moments dating back to 1999.

Did you know that the Daily Show website has a search function? You’d be amazed at the number of clips (approximately 711) that pop up when you type in words like “Jewish” and “Hanukkah.” Five hours later, here we are.

Check out the hilarious results below.

Bonus: If you make it all the way to Hanukkah you get Stephen Colbert circa 2000!
