DIY or YID humour

A brief look at humour including some Jewish jokes. Then you are invited to tell your own favourite jokes which is less daunting than most people think. See if you can make more people laugh than I or the other participants can. Try "stand up comedy" whilst sitting down. GSOH an advantage.

Fire, water, darker: Leonard Cohen, Yair Rosenblum; subversive prayer

Samuel Barth 

Yellow 21

Through music and metaphor Leonard Cohen and Yair Rosenblum subvert the classic High Holyday "Unetaneh Tokef. Looking closely at text and beyond text, seeing music as midrash, we uncover more facets of meaning. Some of light and pathways, others respond to Cohen's haunting demand: "You Want It Darker?" What might "avert" the "decrees" we face?
