Schlemiels and schlimazels, Albert Einstein and Jewish mothers-in-law - what do jokes about Jews reveal about Jewish identity and self-worth? Does it matter if a Jewish joke is told by a Jew or a non-Jew? Are Jewish jokes masochistic? Are they funny? The Genius of the Jewish Joke supplies not only countless jokes and riddles about Jewish characters and communities, but also reveals the relationship between Jewish humor and attitudes about Jewish culture and identity.
