21st century Judaism according to satirist Jon Stewart

Last week was a big week for Jon Stewart. He held a mock-rally in Washington Mall and interviewed President Obama. Stewart could be one of the most influential – and at times one of the most controversial – Jewish personalities in the media. He is an “equal opportunity” satirist whose popular fake news show and bestselling books use humor in a thoughtful and provocative manner. “Earth: A Visitor’s Guide to the Human Race” (Grand Central Publications), Stewart’s newest book, is no exception. In taking on as subject matter all of human history, Stewart of course finds room for a little self-deprecation and a few scathingly funny jabs at our community. Reader warning: the content could be semi-offensive. Tell us what you think at connect@jinsider.com. Here are some excerpted highlights:
