Lunch and Learn - "Humor in the Talmud, Part 5"

Saturday, August 18, 2018 • 7 Elul 5778

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

On Saturday 18 August 2018, right after morning Shabbat services (about noon), there will be a Lunch and Learn led by Dr Maurice M. Mizrahi on the subject of "Humor in the Talmud, Part 5". Did you really think those venerable Talmud tomes are dry, legalistic, and totally devoid of humor? How wrong you are! Wry Jewish humor is what allowed us to survive. Teachings are best learned when associated with light stories. The Talmud itself records that a certain rabbi always began his lectures with a joke. Come and find out more about the lighter side of Judaism. For those of you who attended Parts 1, 2, 3 and 4 in past years, be assured there will be no duplication!
