WHAT MAKES JEWS LAUGH: A JOURNEY THROUGH JEWISH HUMOR

March 2, 2014 0

 
Temple Beth Am of Randolph is honored to welcome noted scholar and author Lewis Glinert, Professor of Hebrew Studies and Linguistics at Dartmouth College. British by upbringing, Professor Glinert has held appointments at Haifa and Bar-Ilan universities, the University of Chicago, and London University, where he chaired the Centre for Jewish Studies until moving to the US in 1997. A best selling author of award winning books in Judaica, Professor Glinert has also published many scholarly articles in the field of Jewish literature and culture. In fact, his article on Jewish humor appears in the new international “Encyclopedia of Humor Studies”, Sage Publications, 2014. Invited by the BBC to script and present a documentary marking 100 years since the Rebirth of Spoken Hebrew, Glinert’s “Tongue of Tongues” was a BBC 1992 nomination for a SONY award. Please plan to join us, and bring a friend, along with a sense of humor. This program is free and all are welcome.
