From Sinai to Seinfeld- A history of Jewish Humor with Congregation Etz Chaim

Sundays, 05-31-2020 (10 sessions)
10:00 AM to 11:30 AM
Online Class •

 

 

A treasure of irresistible jokes provides the organizing principle for a presentation of 10 major themes in Jewish history - from the Israelite relationship with God to the growing divide between cultural and religious Judaism in the early 21st century. The course demonstrated that the most resonant Jewish jokes are deeply revealing sign posts along our Jewish journey. Treating Jewish jokes as text, the course invites students to analyze and interpret the evolving concerns, styles, rhythms, preoccupations and values of the Jewish people that lie buried deep in the words that make us laugh as Jews, and that bond us as a people.
