While comedian Jon Stewart (né Jon Stewart Leibowitz) spent this summer on a lengthy hiatus from his “The Daily Show,” his production crew were busy preparing for his triumphant return next Tuesday.

In anticipation of the big day, a compilation of Stewart’s best Jewish moments, aptly titled “A Salute to Jewish People,” with the subheading “The Daily Show tapes before sundown, and therefore breaks no Passover laws,” aired this past week.

The montage features clips from interviews with Jewish comedian Sascha Baron Cohen’s alter-ego Borat, as well as other moments where Stewart’s Jewishness made for good comedic fodder or interludes.

Watch a video of Stewart’s “Salute to Jewish People” below.

  • How dare he make jokes when helpless ants are being crushed by Palestinian feet on breadlines across…YOU OWE US! YOU OWE US EVERYTHING YOU HAVE!!!!!! AND MORE!!!!

    More insanity from the orthodox bigots and fanatics who live in a world of fanaticism without any comprehension of humor.

    • Michael Abramowitz

      Orthodox Jews are often called fanatics or bigots because they see the world as it is and not in the PC mode that our news media would like it to be. With all the resources in the hands of Islam, and after the attack by Muslims on 9/11 which was greater than Pearl Harbor, you expect there to be no hatred and anger? America called their enemies by name in World War II and hated those who murdered our people in Pearl Harbor, a normal and natural instinct when your “family” is murdered. BUT TO PUT A BIT OF HUMOR IN TO THIS RESPONSE, IT HAS BEEN SAID THAT: The Orthodox
      are crazy, the Conservatives..hazy, and the Reform..lazy.

  • He is a sponsor of websites that accuse Jews with survivalist instincts of being Islamophobic. He is a traitor to the Jews.

  • Sasha Baren Cohen is the best. He makes me laugh. I like the one where he played the Dictator with all the women around him. Sounds familiar!

  • Jon Stewart just ridicules Jews and is unfunny. This was lame.

    • Elliot J. Stamler

      And Jackie Mason, the ultra-conservative, ultra right-wing Republican hater of every Democrat, of the president, etc. etc., doesn’t ridicule Jews. And yes Jackie Mason is hysterically funny…Jon Stewart is very witty and amusing…you people are really pills.

  • That would be “né” (masculine), not “née” (feminine)- meaning born – unless there’s something John hasn’t told us about? :)

  • Make no mistake. Jon Stewart is a Palestinean sympathizer, who riducules observant Jews and has bashed Israel.

  • Harry M. Stuart

    How was that “Salute” funny? I guess, if you love Jon Stewart, it was.

    10 New Hollywood Movies That Aim to Show Support for Israel (SATIRE)

    Ten major film studios are currently in production on projects that promote a decidedly pro-Israeli narrative. In famously liberal Hollywood, such a development has left mouths agape and set tongues a wagging. Since the Jewish State began defending itself from the thousands of rockets that Hamas has hurled at it – as well as ongoing terror attacks and murders, the overwhelming number of Tinseltown’s producers, directors, actors, and studio moguls have remained indifferent to the plight of millions of Israeli [...]

    Israeli Judoka Yarden Gerbi (63kg), 25, of Netanya, on Thursday lost the final round at the Judo World Cup, and her world title to Clarisse Agbegnenou of France, at a match held in Russia. “I have mixed feelings,” Gerbi told Israeli Army radio. But, “I shouldn’t assume that I’d win the world Judo championship twice in a row,” she admitted. Gerbi won gold in Rio De Janeiro last year. “When I made my decision, I knew it was going to [...]

    Surviving the Holocaust by Hiding Their Faith (REVIEW)

    “Jews Out!” was just the name of a child’s game that three little girls played in World War II Europe. But all is not as it seems because the three girls were Jewish, but hiding their true identities. In award-winning author R. D. Rosen’s riveting non-fiction work, Such Good Girls, “Jews Out!” wasn’t a game; it was a struggle for survival. The girls, Sophie, Flora, and Carla, grew up at a time and a place that did not allow them [...]

    Twenty Years On, the Real and Radical Legacy of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach

    JNS.org – “He was part hippie, part yippie, part beatnik, and part New Age,” wrote Elli Wohlgelernter in a Jerusalem Post eulogy in 1994, following the Oct. 20 passing of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach. Twenty years later, more robust accounts of Carlebach’s life have come to the surface. Earlier this year, Natan Ophir published the book Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach: Life, Mission & Legacy. This past summer, Rabbi Shlomo Katz’s The Soul of Jerusalem hit the shelves. But even the authors will admit [...]

    Beatlemania Invades the Gaza Strip (SATIRE)

    As Hamas loses its grip on power in the Gaza Strip as a result of war, poverty and disillusionment, the Islamist terrorist group has developed an ingenious way to raise the morale of the 1.7 million Palestinian Arabs it was elected to serve. While currently focused on delivering a rocket into every Israeli home, Hamas has not left its own people behind. To gently wipe away the tears of children strategically placed inside kindergartens as human shields, the Hamas Interior Ministry [...]

    Removing Jesus’ Jewish Identity From Artwork

    In a strong statement that challenges the historic divide between Christianity and Judaism, Pope Francis recently proclaimed, “Inside every Christian is a Jew.” But if you look at Renaissance artworks that depict Jesus, you will not find any evidence of a Jew inside the Christianized Jesus — even though the Gospels in the New Testament tell us that Jesus was Jewish to the core. Getting that point across to the public is a daunting task, as I learned in interviews I [...]

    JNS.org – Having started his career playing on his family’s pots and pans, Jewish musician Billy Jonas has maintained this homemade performance ethic while spreading his messages of simple living and environmentalism to a shared home throughout the world. After beginning in the kitchen, Jonas soon moved to the music room, where he picked up the piano, guitar, and trombone. These days, the multi-talented multi-instrumentalist plays on with pretty much anything he can find, including cans, bottles buckets, and other recycled-object [...]

    JNS.org – Sara Davidson’s The December Project is a new book that should be read by all senior citizens, and by those who hope to live a long life, for it raises a question that most of us have not been taught how to answer: What should we do in that final stage of our lives? Many of us continue working past the traditional retirement age of 65, not because we need the money and not because we find the [...]
