Jewish humor: 5 must-read books

Laughing is good, because too much genealogy is too much of a good thing!

Tracing the Tribe likes laughter, and Sarah at the Jewish Publication Society Blog has just listed five must-read books on Jewish humor.

Take a laugh break, thanks to Sarah, who adds her comments on each book and some Jewish humor links.

William Novak and Moshe Waldoks’ The Big Book of Jewish Humor

Jon Stewart’s Naked Pictures of Famous People

Jerry Seinfeld’s SeinLanguage

Woody Allen’s Mere Anarchy

David Minkoff’s Oy!: The Ultimate Book of Jewish Jokes

Have fun!

And, if this doesn’t keep you occupied, read the previous JPS blog post on Jewish jokes spotlighting a website that offers – every Tuesday and Thursday – a new very short video with a new (old) joke.
