When Jews Were Funny

2013, 1 hour 29 minutes, Documentary

Language: English, Country: USA

Alan Zweig's 2013 documentary "When Jews Were Funny" surveys the often colorful history of Jewish comedy in America. The documentary is insightful, often hilarious and packed with one-liners. While taking the viewer on the journey through the history of Jewish comedy, a second journey is taken in the exploration of what it means to be Jewish in America.

 


Be on the lookout for community events and a TBA event for:

The One Book, One Jewish Community Book selection for 2023-2024

Book Cover: Israel by Noa Tishby

Israel: A Simple Guide to The Most Misunderstood Country on Earth by Noa Tishby

Israel. The small strip of arid land is 5,700 miles away but remains a hot-button issue and a thorny topic of debate. But while everyone seems to have a strong opinion about Israel, how many people know the facts?
