NPR host and author, Michael Krasny, will discuss Jewish humor in many of its forms of expression through different eras with emphasis on jokes – which can best be understood as narratives of Jewish history and Jewish identity. You’ll hear about the great Jewish comedians, Yiddish traditions behind Jewish humor and some thoughts about how Jewish humor has served and continues to serve Jewish people as well as those outside the tribe. Be prepared to learn and to laugh!

At Emanu-El, we are an active community of lifelong Jewish learners – in the endless pursuit of spiritual growth and exploration. As Jews, we are compelled to question and debate. These conversations energize us as we gain new perspectives and challenge our own long-held beliefs. Our shared desire for knowledge and for community enriches us as individuals and bonds us as a congregation.
Emanu-El thrives when we are learning together. We hope that you will find time on your calendar and in your mind to join us on a thought-provoking and powerful Jewish journey.
