Our Annual (well, from now on) Top Jew of the Year list features Jews who embody the best in Jewish values. And you don’t have to be Jewish to win: see our “Honorary Jew of the Year.”
1) Jon Stewart
For his intellect, his sense of humor, his willingness to speak truth to power,...

When “Saturday Night Live” alum “Father Guido Sarducci,” delivering the benediction at Jon Stewart’s Rally to Restore Sanity, ran through a list of religions seeking the true faith, Judaism received the biggest applause.
That didn’t surprise Rivka Burstein-Stern.

Comedian Jon Stewart’s recent selection as the most influential man in America in a poll by AskMen.com, a popular online magazine, is more than just an inane piece of trivia. It can help inform the international Jewish community of the approach we must take to confront the very...

If 10 million gathered for the Rally to Restore Sanity on the mall in Washington, D.C., as Jon Stewart proclaimed (really, probably more like a few hundred thousand), then there were at least 1 million in Los Angeles’ MacArthur Park on Saturday (or maybe more like 2,000) all...

“The Daily Show” host Jon Stewart jabbed back at fired CNN anchor Rick Sanchez.
Sanchez was fired Oct. 1, a day after he suggested that Jews run the news business and called Stewart, who is Jewish, a bigot.
During the taping Oct. 2 of a Comedy Central benefit to raise money to...

Rob Kutner is a veteran comedy writer for “The Daily Show” and author of the tongue-in-cheek “Apocalypse How” (Running Press, 2008). Having just returned to Los Angeles to work for “The Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien,” he talks about being an observant Jew in...

Google the question, “Is Jim Cramer Jewish?” Go ahead—about 500,000 web surfers already have. For a long time, the first result to pop up was a forum entry at stormfront.something-or-other, the Internet’s safe harbour for Frustrated White Males. The entry offers only this...

Comedy (?) from The Daily Show. Post-debate analysis reveals John McCain is going to die soon, and Michelle Obama has a big butt. Are these Florida swing voters hilariously out of touch, or simply telling it like it is? Wyatt Cenac reports.

My primary criticism of Bill Maher’s “Religulous” was that it argued apples (religious people) were absolutely bananas (insane) by almost exclusively focusing on kumquats (the strangest fruits you’ll ever eat). To Jon Stewart’s credit, he skewers his victims not by often choosing the biggest target but by trapping the leaders of our world in their own words.
The above video was brought to you by my wife, the

I hate to start my blog off like this, but its necessary. The Daily Show with Jon Stewart totally ripped me off. As many of the VideoJew watchers know, I’m a huge fan of the elderly Jewish scene. I’ve learned Mah Jongg and even attended the 94th Annual Hadassah convention (see...

"Munich" and "Paradise Now," two films subjected to considerable controversy in the American Jewish community and Israel, came up empty-handed at Sunday evening's Academy Awards ceremonies.
Not at all controversial was the selection of Rachel Weisz as best supporting actress in "The...

The new Oscars' host and the latest Jew to take on the role is -- drumroll, please -- Jon Stewart, the comedian and host of Comedy Central's mock news program, "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart." Stewart is the latest in a long line of comedians, including Johnny Carson, Bob Hope,...
