A Few Jewish Jokes

Life in Israel is no laughing matter. Countless lives have been devastated in the current conflict and war.

At times, everything seems hopeless. But when the Jewish people are faced with hopelessness and despair, they unleash their secret weapon - their sense of humor.

The Jews have been enduring tough times for thousands of years. Yet remarkably, they have managed to keep their sense of humor through it all.

Some have wondered what their secret to survival is. Perhaps a small part can be attributed to this sense of humor. Their ability to see the light in difficult situations, to look beyond today and know that there will be a tomorrow.

No matter how unbearable their current situation is, they will get through it, somehow, and survive.

Jewish humor isn't just funny, it's extremely powerful.
