A Treasury of Jewish Humor
Doubleday, 1993 - Religion - 768 pages
Illuminating the Jewish heritage in a manner no other book can, Nathan Ausubel's classic A Treasury of Jewish Humor brings together the many voices of that great oral and written tradition. Here are sermons of anonymous rabbis from the shtetlach as well as writings from the great authors. Always prodding, always making you laugh and always making you think.
