Jewish Humor: What the Best Jewish Jokes Say about the Jews Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here are more than 100 of the best Jewish jokes you'll ever hear, interspersed with perceptive and persuasive insight into what they can tell us about how Jews see themselves, their families, and their friends, and what they think about money, sex, and success. Rabbi Joseph Telushkin is as celebrated for his wit as for his scholarship, and in this immensely entertaining book, he displays both in equal measure. Stimulating, something stinging, and always very, very funny, Jewish Humor offers a classic portrait of the Jewish collective unconscious.

Synopsis:

"Insightful and provocative analysis . . . coupled with one of the funniest collections of Jewish jokes ever compiled".--"American Jewish World".

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 217-226) and index.
