Let There Be Laughter – Jewish Humor Around the World
May 19, 2021 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Online, Interactive Tour with ANU – Museum of the Jewish People, Tel Aviv
What makes Jews so funny? And how did so many of the “People of the Book” turn out to be superstar writers, producers and comedians? Join the museum for a lighthearted look at the origins of Jewish humor and the major contributions of Jews to the rise of a global industry. We’ll experience humor from different perspectives, including learning more about the comedy and comedians of the US and Israel.
Led by Leebat Weiss, Museum educator.
