In 2019, Jewish Life Television launched “Bubbies Know Best,” a dating show with a Jewish twist – where three Jewish grandmothers act as matchmakers for young and old, straight and gay, Jewish and non-Jewish. Based upon the show’s great success in season one, “Bubbies Know Best” began pre-production on season two earlier this year.

With the arrival of the coronavirus, the Bubbies pivoted in May 2020 and with Executive Producer Brad Pomerance at the helm, Bubbies Bunny Gibson, S.J. Mendelson and Linda Rich launched an audio-visual podcast, which includes words of wisdom, celebrity interviews and reactions to viral videos.

When the Bubbies realized that our nation faced an inflection point after the murder of George Floyd, they knew that they had to join the conversation – resulting in “Bubbies and Grannies Know Best.” In this extended episode, our three Jewish grandmothers welcomed three African-American grandmothers to talk, learn and listen about how the Jewish community and the African-American community can continue to build and strengthen alliances during these very difficult times. That episode premiered on JLTV on June 15, 2020.

As a follow-up to the well-received “Bubbies and Grannies Know Best,” JLTV is proud to announce the premiere and release of “Bubbies and Sistas Know Best,” where our three Jewish grandmothers engage in a heartfelt and often hard conversation with three African-American Jewish women, unpacking and unraveling so many of the critically- important issues facing our communities and our nation, because, as Brad Pomerance said, “Bubbies and Sistas do know best.” Joining Bubbies Bunny, S.J. and Linda are:
