Join us each Shabbat for an uplifting and participatory journey – to Sinai and back. Then hang around afterward for a wonderful kiddush lunch, a little schnapps and a lot of shmoozing.

Come as you are – leave changed.

Torah on Tap Presents:
The evolution of Jewish humor

In honor of Purim, this month’s Torah on Tap presents a retrospective and discussion of Jewish humor.

From Shalom Aleichem, to vaudeville, to the borscht belt, to Seinfeld and Sarah Silverman, Jews have had a penchant for poking fun…mainly at ourselves. But that wasn’t always the case. There was a time, in the not too distant past, when Jews were regarded as having no sense of humor whatsoever. (Tough to be funny with a Cossack’s boot on your neck.) Times have changed, though. Join us as we talk about it and share some laughs along the way.

We’ll start with the short documentary, “When Jews Were Funny.” Then we’ll spend time sharing our views on the effects that history, assimilation and success have had on Jewish humor and the American comedic landscape. Along the way, we’ll try to work in a few more clips – both past and present – that span the scope of Jewish humor.

All are welcome. This program is free and open, although everyone is required to bring at least one joke to this session. For more information, contact Alan Silverman.
