On Tuesday night, Jon Stewart announced that he will leave The Daily Show at some point in 2015. Under Stewart’s leadership, the show has become the preeminent satire of modern politics. And any of his Jewish viewers over the years can confirm another fundamental element of the show: Stewart’s Jewishness. Few in late-night comedy — or television in general— have spoken so candidly about Jewish topics, from conflicts in Israel to “problems” with the Jewish holidays.

Below are some of Stewart’s Jew-iest moments:
