OT: Just noticed there seems to be no religious programming on TV for Jewish people or Muslims. Anyone else find this odd? Obviously it is on the internet, but the 2 oldest religions don't seem to be in the broadcast medium. I've never been to shabbat or synagogue so I was curious as to what goes on there. A friend of mine had a father who was an Imam but I was never invited to go there either. The Mormon Temple is for members only.
Oh well, I've got my Costco membership, but I do invite friends to go with me on occasion.

Don't know how much actual religious programming is on it, but Spectrum has a channel called Jewish Life Television.

I am sure you can watch a Jewish and Muslim service on youtube.

If you are a Christian interested in attending a Jewish service, there is a "Jews for Jesus" congregation I think in Claremont. They mostly keep the Jewish traditions but add in some Trinity and Gospels.

I caught a Jewish service online from the east coast, it was interesting. I was just commenting on the whole imbalance of religion on TV, I'm not looking for a new religion, just thought it was interesting. There are plenty of other religions out there that I'm sure most people have never been exposed to Taoist,Hindu,Buddhism, along with the 72 sects of Muslim.

It might have something to do with the fact that Jews don't evangelize.
