Learning Session with Taube Scholar and Senior Rabbi Emeritus Stephen Pearce, Ph.D

 

THAT REMINDS ME OF A JOKE

Well-placed humor has enormous impact because it reveals hidden truths, as Shakespeare wrote in King Lear: “Jesters do oft prove prophets." This workshop will explore the power of purpose-driven humor as opposed to random off-the-cuff comments merely meant to get a laugh.  

*This virtual event will be held on Zoom.
