BEYOND THE PALE explores local, national and international politics, policy, and social movements from a Jewish perspective. We also bring listeners the voices and sounds of contemporary Jewish culture, from film critics to filmmakers, novelists, poets and musicians.

BEYOND THE PALE is the only Jewish program on radio or television devoted to bringing a progressive lens to political and cultural debates. Archived shows and Podcasts of BEYOND THE PALE, as well as an events calendar and other progressive Jewish resources, are available at

BEYOND THE PALE is produced with the support of Jews for Racial and Economic Justice, a New York City-based organization that mobilizes the Jewish community to support key social justice struggles in the city, such as opposing racial violence and economic exploitation and defending the social safety net.
