What’s So Funny About Jewish Humor with Author William Novak

Hosted By: Moment Magazine

Jewish jokes are a precious commodity and a special part of our heritage. Some of the best ones are worth looking at as succinct and entertaining expressions of our values. Join William Novak, co-editor of The Big Book of Jewish Humor, in print since 1981, as he explores some of the values behind the jokes and how they can be treated as secular Jewish texts. From well-known classics to relatively obscure examples, there will be some history, commentary and plenty of laughs.
