The first-ever Jewish news network will begin broadcasting tomorrow.

“Jewish News 1 was born as an alternative to the world’s leading news networks – CNN, Fox News and Sky News,” reports Andy Sennitt for the Media Network. “But its main goal is to serve as the Jewish version of al-Jazeera, which has won the hearts of tens of millions of Arab viewers over the past 15 years.”

According to Israel’s Makor Rishon newspaper, the channel will be broadcast via satellite to Europe, North America and the Middle East.

In Israel it will be offered by the Yes satellite company.

Sennitt reports that the network plans to broadcast news from Israel and the world 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from studios in Tel Aviv, Brussels, Kiev, Washington, Paris and London — with broadcasts initially in English, but eventually also in Hebrew, French, Italian, Russian and German.
