Jewish News One (JN1), is an international news network which covers world news with a focus on Judaism-related events. Its primary mission is to report Jewish and Israeli current affairs without bias, and according to spokesmen, JN1 can accomplish this because it’s an independent, non-profit organisation which does not depend on any nation, government, or political party. Their slogan is Informing Opinion, Explanding horizons. 

JN1 began broadcasting on 21 September 2011, and organisers have called it the first global 24/7,  Jewish-interest news channel in the English language.  However,  JN1 is more commonly referred to as the “Jewish al Jazeera”

JN1 currently broadcasts worldwide, 24 hours a day through the live stream on the website and also through the iPhone and iPad app. JN1 is also available in North America, Europe, and Israel via satellite and cable packages.  JN1 is not affiliated with and receives no funding from the government of Israel.

The network is owned by Ukrainian billionaires Igor Kolomoisky and Vadim Rabinovich, president and vice-president respectively of the European Jewish Union, a Brussels-based umbrella body of Jewish communities and organisations in Europe. They have reportedly invested $5 million USD in the channel. Both businessmen are prominent philanthropists in the international Jewish community, financing civil society events in Israel and Ukraine. They decided to launch a TV news network because, according to Bussels Bureau Chief Alexander Zanzer, “they now want to do something that resonates on an international level.
