Joys of Jewish Humor
A collection of anecdotes, epigrams and jokes displaying a wide range of colourful characters from the Jewish past and present. We laugh and sometimes cry with shlemiels, shlimazls, atheists, agnostics, rabbis, doctors, lawyers and others as they find themselves in some highly unexpected and always hilarious situations. This is a warm and unusually entertaining collection that will be treasured by all who want to know what makes Jews think and behave as they do.
