Jews and Humor
Wednesday, October 2, 2013 • 9:59am
Temple Sholom, a Reform Jewish congregation, will host a lecture from noted author and public speaker Rabbi Jeff Salkin entitled Jews and Humor on Sunday, October 20, at 7pm, at Temple Sholom, 74 S. Martine Avenue, Fanwood (Marian Street entrance in the back of Fanwood Presbyterian church).
Why are so many comedians Jewish? Is there something inherently Jewish about comedy? Are some things simply not funny? Join Rabbi Jeff Salkin, student of Jewish comedy and author of numerous books including The Gods are Broken, and Putting God on the Guest List, on a "serious" journey through Jewish comedy.
The event is free thanks to funding from the Rabbi Nathanson fund at Temple Sholom. It is open to the public and recommended for adults. This program kicks off an exciting series of evening events to include lectures, films and discussions, brought to you by Temple Sholom’s Adult Education Committee for 2013-2014.
