A branch of Shir Hadash...'Bringing Jews closer to Judaism, to one another & to Israel.'
Jewish Education Through Humor... JHP Jewish Humor Project Working with Jewish organizations and through our own initiatives, our mission is to add more life and color to the Torah lifestyle through funny and to educate through laughter. Torah is truth, so comedy must be for it to be truly funny. Comedic expression will help add more color to the already colorful life of the religious Jew, as well as for those that are longing to connect with the community and Israel. And we are here to help your community!!! Always respectful of Torah, yet edgy. We do not shy away from touchy subject matter, as we believe that truth and comedy is how people can see the beauty of our tradition, even in the hardest of times. We are out to touch the soul, and hit the gut of the people, because that is where laughter comes from.
