Event Description:
The Sandra Kahn Wasserman Jewish Studies Center at Baruch College
Why Are Jews Funny?: Jews and Jewish Humor
featuring Professor Linda Weiser Friedman and Hershey Friedman


Prof. Linda Weiser Friedman, a professor of statistics and computer information at the City University of New York, who co-authored God Laughed: Sources of Jewish Humor with her husband Hershey Friedman, a finance professor at CUNY. While one might not normally associate business or statistics professors with laughter, this dynamic duo discuss their decades-long labor of love in compiling a large mound of Jewish jokes and other humorous stories and then using them to explore what it means to be Jewish, religious, and (ultimately) human.

Location: lower level lounge in BPAC, 55 Lexington Ave., (enter at 24th Street)
