“Too Jewish” is a lively and fast-paced show that highlights everything interesting in contemporary Jewish life and features music, arts, culture, comedy, and inspiration. “Too Jewish” is a blend of information, irreverence, and exploration of all things Jewish in the 21st century. “Too Jewish” makes Judaism accessible, interesting, and fun for listeners of all ages and backgrounds, and brings the best of Jewish experience vividly to life. But on “Too Jewish”, Rabbi Cohon also challenges accepted pieties and has fun with anything boring or inauthentic in the way Jews live today in the United States, Israel, and everywhere else.
Since its Tucson debut August 4, 2002, “Too Jewish” has featured such prominent guests as legendary singer and recording artist Neil Sedaka, Kinky Friedman, Elie Wiesel, comedian Lily Tomlin, folksinger Peter Yarrow, NPR Supreme Court Expert Nina Totenberg, Eve Ensler, U.S. Senator Russ Feingold, Rabbi Harold Kushner, Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, singer Matisyahu, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach and many more!
Regular expert commentators of the “Too Jewish” maven section include Tom Price, an educator and former diplomat who offers unique insights into Jewish life around the world, and Guy Gelbart on Israel. Comedy and musical selections drawn by Rabbi Cohon from the remarkable range of great Jewish material help make listening to “Too Jewish” an exciting and fun experience.
