Today on Tablet

Where Jewish humor comes from, our favorite menorahs

Print Email

Today in Tablet Magazine, a collection of Adam Brio’s extended Jewish joke-stories prompts our critic Adam Kirsch to trace the arc of distinctly American Jewish humor as it begins, perhaps, to die altogether. For a slideshow, Hadara Graubart selects our favorite—or, in some cases, simply most provocative—hanukkiahs. From our archives, husband-and-wife novelists Karen E. Bender and Robert Anthony Siegel yank the commercialism out of Hanukkah. We’ll get our one commercial of the day out of the way: this “Today on Tablet” was brought to you by The Scroll.
