“What’s So Funny, Habibi?”: The Healing Powers of Comedy

Workshops
Humor often helps us deal with tragedy and adversity. That being said, who decides what is funny and where to set the line of appropriateness? In this new workshop, we’ll take a look at humor’s healing powers in Israeli society and the Jewish people, debate what “too far” and “too soon” mean, and try our own hand at using humor to tackle some of our people’s most serious topics.

“What War Zone?”: Stand-Up Comedy Show

Stand-Up
Benji presents a hilarious picture of Israel by deconstructing cultural differences and the immigrant experience in Israel. Benji’s energy and enthusiasm will make you laugh out loud as he sheds light on embarrassing Hebrew mistakes, Jewish holidays, and exactly what makes Diaspora and Israeli Jews different from each other. Can be followed by Q&A.
