Jewish Humor Video Playlist, 1990-2020

Hi everyone,

Here’s the playlist for the 3rd and final session of my winter Jewish Humor class.  I figured it was worth putting online, especially with many of us looking for a smile or two in these difficult hours.

Please stay safe and well – and keep in touch.

Affectionately,

Jonathan

The Simpsons

FYI, … “[H]alf the show’s writers are Jewish as are three of the main voice actors — Julie Kavner (Marge Simpson), Hank Azaria (Moe Szyslak, Apu Nahasapeemapetilon, Duffman) and Harry Shearer (Mr. Burns, Ned Flanders, Principal Skinner).  “The place is sort of like a kibbutz, only more Jewish,” he said, throwing out one-liners that would have made Henny Youngman proud.  Reiss showed clips of a few Jewish moments in the show, including the backstory of Herschel Shmoikel Pinchas Yerucham Krustofsky, better known as Krusty the Clown, the son of Rabbi Hyman Krustofsky. The rabbi was voiced by Jackie Mason; Reiss described him as one of his favorites among the 800 or so guest stars the show has featured.  There also are several recurring characters in the show who are portrayed as Jewish, including Duffman, Superintendent Chalmers, Dolph Starbeam and a nursing home resident simply known as Old Jewish Man” (from https://www.jewishexponent.com/2019/03/20/simpsons-writer-reveals-shows-jewish-bona-fides/)

  1. Rabbi Blake, I hope you and your family are well. Thank you for reminding us that humor can be healing. This playlist is the perfect antidote to last night’s Jewish programming, which was watching “Unorthodox” on Netflix.

    I think you and the rest of the clergy can take a lot of credit for some of the good things that are happening in my house right now, which include Chloe leading UVA Hillel services on Friday nights, and Maisie continually engaging with the UT Hillel as well via Zoom. It fills our hearts to see them find comfort and caring in their Jewish communities at school, just like they did at WRT.

    We hope to be back at WRT very soon singing some shabbat songs and breaking bread as a congregation.

    Until then, please take care.

    Warmly, Leesa Leesa Suzman leesasuzman@gmail.com 917-796-1836
