The Salon, The Jewish Channel women’s issues chat show, is out with a new episode — featuring actress Tovah Feldshuh (of “Kissing Jessica Stein” and “Golda’s Balcony” fame), Lilith magazine editor Susan Weidman Schneider, and comedy writer Julie Klausner.

The monthly series is hosted by none other than Forward editor Jane Eisner, with Mediaite editor at large Rachel Sklar.
