Talmudic Reasoning and Jewish Humour

Presenter: Elie Schwartz

To the uninitiated, the Talmud is a peculiarly convoluted, tortuous, draining, gruelling, knotty, impossible - yet logical and delightful - type of mental gymnastics and Jewish reasoning. After all, its 6,200 pages served as the training ground for Jewish lawyers and Jewish comedians. A few laughs are the best medicine. Bring your Medicare card!!!

Languages have always been used to speak about ones enemies, but also with one’s enemies.
