Episode 20: “Jewish” humour and Sefirat Ha’Omer

The radio613 collective takes time to explore ideas around “Jewish” humour. Is there such a thing? Can it be useful for inspiring religious practice and interrogation? Can it be liberatory? Can it act to constrain and essentialize? Whose parents have the worst weekly Shabbat jokes? Many questions.

Also this week, Malcah outlines some meaningful interpretations of the Omer calendar, highlighting attributes of G-d embodied by Jewish women throughout history. Including a story by Rabbi Jill Hammer of Ritualwell.org told to mark the 18th day of the Omer.

Music from Jeszcze Raz and Daniel Kahn. Tune in!
