And The Lord Said, “No! Use The Other Remote”

So you live too far from the nearest Synagogue to manage to get there for the holiest days of the entire year. What do you do? Previously you were s#$%^t out of luck. You either missed out on some of G-ds loving touch or you pulled your ass off the sofa and made the trip. But not now. Technology has brought you a new option. Just reach that arm out and grab the remote.

Shalom TV is a free Video-On-Demand Jewish cable network currently available in more than 38 million homes. This year it will broadcast the Jewish High Holiday services via national cable TV for the first time. According to the network, its “designed for those who cannot attend a synagogue service” They will air Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur congregational programs beginning the week of September 5. The different parts of the services will be presented as individual programs such as liturgy, Torah readings, Shofar Service on Rosh Hashanah and more led by Rabbi Mark S. Golub, president of Shalom TV from his home community in Connecticut. Shalom TV is available through Comcast, Time Warner, Cablevision, Verizon FiOS, Cox, RCN, Bright House, Armstrong, Service Electric Cable vision, Buckeye CableSystem, MetroCast, Blue Ridge Communications, Frontier and Rogers Cable (Canada).


I’m totally sitting on my ass this year. And the best part is when I fall asleep in the middle of the sermon, I can just rewind and watch what I missed later in the day!

I love technology
