LIVE ONLINE MUSEUM TOUR

Sunday, August 23, 11 am
Join us on Zoom as the Museum of the Jewish People at Beit Hatfutsot leads Beth Jacob congregants in a “tour” of the Tel Aviv museum’s exhibit “Let There Be Laughter – Jewish Humor Around the World”

Am Yisrael HA! What makes Jews so funny? And how did “The People of the Book” turn out to be superstar writers, producers and comedians? On this tour, we will take a lighthearted look at the origins of Jewish humor and the major contributions of Jews to the rise of a global industry. We will celebrate the diversity and vitality of Jewish humor, and explore how elements of Jewish joking have remained constant regardless of time, place, and language.

Also, mark your calendars to join us on October 25 for “American Jews” and on November 15 for “Jewish Art + Culture”!
