Writing Jewish Jokes


Jewish humor is a crucial part of Judaism! Have some fun coming up with original Jewish jokes, following these 3 activities by the author of Only Kidding!: My First Book of Jewish Jokes.

You can use this as a stand-alone activity or connect it with a unit of study (ex: history of Jewish humor or Purim)
