Join Rabbi Birnholz As He Explores
The Anatomy of a Jewish Joke: “Two Jews Come to a Rabbi…”
7:30 pm at Congregation Schaarai Zedek
Jewish jokes take many forms. Some are philosophical. Others are barbed or outright anti-Semitic. Each joke can be analyzed from different perspectives and each has its own tale to tell. Debate what makes a joke Jewish. Discuss why a joke was written and what it says about the Jewish mindset. And laugh a little along the way.
