Shalom TV, a television channel that contains "ethical and moral programming" targeting Jewish audiences, will debut today in Baltimore, the greater Washington area and Northern Virginia for subscribers of Comcast's On Demand digital cable service.

Until now, the channel has been available only in Philadelphia, where viewers have been treated recently to a panel discussion on Darfur from New York City; former President Jimmy Carter and Prof. Alan Dershowitz speaking at Brandeis University about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict; and hip-hop entertainer Russell Simmons discussing anti-Semitism. In addition, Shalom TV has programs including minitours of the Middle East and Hebrew lessons.

Shalom TV is available to Comcast's digital subscribers on Channel 1 of its on-demand service. It is free until May 17, when it will cost $5.99 a month.
