Sundays at 8 and 9 pm, starting December 21. In the Season 2 opener, we learn that every fairy tale has its sequel. On the brink of happiness at the end of last season, retail genius John Moray and his “little champion,” Denise, find true love a bumpy ride indeed, as Katherine and her new husband scheme to wreck their lives. In the first episode at 8 pm, time has not stood still since last season’s wedding disaster, and now Moray, Denise and Katherine reunite under a new regime. In episode 2, at 9 pm, fireworks ignite—literally—when a vendor named Clemence arrives from Paris. Tom and Dudley succumb. Jonas reappears. And wedding bells ring.

Tuesday, December 16 at 9 pm. Rabbi Israel ben Eliezer (1698-1760), known as the Ba'al Shem Tov ("Master of the Good Name"), is one of the most beloved and celebrated, yet elusive, figures in Jewish history. Today, Jews worldwide—and even non-Jews—revere him as the founder of the Hasidic movement, a 18th-century offshoot of Judaism that promotes a mystical interpretation of the Bible, and as a model of piety and spirituality. The documentary Fire in the Forest explores the life and legacy of the Ba'al Shem Tov through interviews with religious leaders and scholars, and on-location footage. The title derives from a tale about rabbis finding a hidden fire in the forest where they could appeal to God for help and have their prayers answered.]]>Mon, 15 Dec 2014 05:27:38 GMThttp://krcb.org/staff-picks/fire-in-the-forest-the-life-and-legacy-of-the-ba-al-shem-tov
