A Treasury of Jewish Humor by Nathan Ansubel 1951 A Treasury of Jewish Humor by Nathan Ansubel 1951



'I don't care who you are, this is a funny book!!' 


'The first collection in English of humorous stories, satires and witticisms from the rich Jewish literature of all times.'


'The book is like taking a trip through the world of modern and ancient jewry, illuminated by satire, wit, irony, and cockeyed waggery.'


It is 5 1/2 in by 8 1/2 in, and and over 2 in thick, its weight is almost 2 lbs, it is a big book!


The dust cover is ragged, but the book is in good condition, the pages are starting to turn yellow.  It will give many hours of enjoyment.


Sample:


'Do tell me, Rabbi,' once asked the president of a congregation, 'why is it that a godly man like you is always talking about business matters? Now, take me- I'm a businessman, but once I leave my office I do nothing but talk about spiritual matters.'


'This follows a very sound principle!' answered the rabbi.


'What principle is that, Rabbi?'


'Oh, the principle that people usually like to discuss things they know nothing about.'
