Pop­u­lar Jewish ra­dio show to air from Hous­ton amid Hur­ri­cane Har­vey re­cov­ery

The Jewish Voice - - NEWS IN REVIEW -

(JNS.org) Pop­u­lar Jewish ra­dio per­son­al­ity Nachum Se­gal re­turns to Hous­ton this week for his lat­est round of broad­cast­ing in the flood-stricken city, as the lo­cal Jewish com­mu­nity re­cov­ers from Hur­ri­cane Har­vey.

In part­ner­ship with the Ortho­dox Union, the Nachum Se­gal Net­work’s “JM in the AM” pro­gram will broad­cast live from Hous­ton from Sept. 6-8. The ra­dio host also aired his show from Hous­ton in 2015, fol­low­ing that year’s Memo­rial Day flood in Amer­ica’s fourth-largest city, which dam­aged about 500 Jewish homes. Hur­ri­cane Har­vey is be­lieved to have in­flicted far more dam­age to the Jewish and broader com­mu­ni­ties than pre­vi­ous ma­jor floods in Hous­ton in 2015 and 2016.

“Our broth­ers and sis­ters in Hous­ton have gone through a ter­ri­ble or­deal with so much of the com­mu­nity they built sit­ting in ru­ins,” Nachum Se­gal said in a state­ment. “The goal of our trip is to high­light the com­mu­nity, what they’ve gone through and what lays ahead of them, shar­ing their sto­ries and show­ing them the sup­port from their brethren around the world.”

JM in the AM’s three-hour broad­cast gar­ners be­tween 75,000 and 100,000 lis­ten­ers each week­day morn­ing, ac­cord­ing to the Nachum Se­gal Net­work.
