Tomorrow, Jewish News One, the network billed as the ‘Jewish al Jazeera’—owned by European Jewish Union president, Igor Kolomoisky, and vice president, Vadim Rabinovich—will join the airwaves, broadcasting to Europe, North America, and the Middle East. Its mission? “To introduce a new voice onto the increasingly crowded international news media landscape, complimenting the existing choices and offering international audiences a wide range of Jewish opinion and perspectives on key political, cultural and social themes.”

Solidifying the network’s Jewish street cred, expect an interview with Steven Spielberg next month.
