Laugh Until You Cry: A Bit About Jewish American Humor with Or Ami Village
Monday January 24 – 7:00 to 8:00 pm PT

American Jewish humor is an important part of American Jewish history and culture; part of our heritage that has connected us with the rest of the American community. Jewish entertainers have dominated the comedy scene for decades. Our humor helps us celebrate moments of joy and enables us to get through times of sorrow. Join Or Ami Village and watch a video featuring many of our favorite comedians and then we will share our own experiences with the humorous side of being Jewish. We’d love for you to share stories of your funny family members. Have some favorite jokes to tell us? We want to hear them. Join us!

Rabbi Joshua Garroway PhD explores the spectrum of Jewish utopian aspirations, including Torah’s Mishkan building, post-destruction Temple restoration, Shabbatai Tzvi’s false messianism, Zionism, Tikkun Olam and more.
