Why are yarmulkes round? Who was the first Jewish comedian? Why do random Jewish holidays keep popping up unexpectedly?

These baffling questions and many more will be answered by the comedic powerhouse of Pulitzer Prize-winner Dave Barry (“Live Right and Find Happiness (Although Beer Is Much Faster)”), Adam Mansbach (“Go the F**k to Sleep” and “You Have to F*****g Eat”) and Alan Zweibel (“Saturday Night Live,” “It’s Garry Shandling’s Show,” “Late Show with David Letterman” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm”).

In their new book, “A Field Guide to the Jewish People,” the authors dissect every holiday and tradition, unravel a long and complicated history and tackle the tough questions that have been plaguing the long-suffering Jewish people everywhere for centuries. Follow the ancient Jewish tradition of gathering your chosen ones around a Zoom screen, pop open a bottle of Manischewitz and get ready to laugh as you finally begin to understand the inner workings of Judaism.

Signed books are available for purchase from Harvard Book Store.

Presented in partnership with Boston Jewish Film and the Jewish Book Council.
