Facilitator: Rabbi Shaya Katz, moved to Kansas City with his family from Riverdale, New York. Rabbi Katz attended Yeshiva University, from which he is ordained, and he completed his degree in social work with a certificate in Jewish Communal Service.

Description: Everyone loves a good rabbi joke. Join Rabbi Katz to explore the great tradition of joking in Judaism’s earliest texts. What purpose does humor serve, if any? Are there any limitations to joking? What examples do we have in the Talmud of rabbis being funny (if any)? Join us to find out- and maybe laugh a little!
