The Tavern #2: A comic celebration of Jewish humor

From Shalom Aleichem’s Shtetl pranksters to the best of black humor, from Hershel of Ostropol to Juha from Uzbekistan, from Chelm to Chacham Chanuka, Jewish humor is known worldwide for its sarcastic nature. A selection of familiar and less familiar stories and heroes will come to life at the local tavern in a surprising and comic series of events devoted to generations of Jewish humor.

Yair Lehman and Gady Weissbart will host, serve, perform and sing.
