From Sinai to Seinfeld

April 25, 2017, Tuesday
10:00-11:30am & 7:00-8:30pm

When the Pew Research Center, in its 2013 survey of American Jews, asked,
"What does it mean to be Jewish?" 43% said, "having a good sense of humor."
That's more than those who answered "being part of a Jewish community" and
"observing Jewish law." Join us for 9 sessions as we delve into biblical passages,
the Talmud, folk takes, midrash, fiction, cartoons and transcripts for discussion and
analysis on Jewish humor.
