An Umbrella Full of Holes: A History of Jewish Humor

From 10 to 11:30 a.m. Tuesdays, June 30 through July 21. Why are the Jews so funny? What is unique about Jewish humor? Why are so many comedians, satirical novelists, and film directors Jewish?

We will also look at how the Jews have used laughter as both a coping mechanism and an instrument of self-defense against pogroms, forced migrations, and even the Holocaust. Taught by Avinoam J. Patt, Ph.D, Doris and Simon Konover Chair of Judaic Studies; Director, Center for Judaic Studies and Contemporary Jewish Life at the University of Connecticut.
