Welcome to Jewish Humor Central

We have been searching for Jewish humor on the Internet ever since the Internet began. You would think that with so many Jewish comedians doing stand-up, TV, and films, there would be an infinite number of web sites with high quality Jewish humor. Well, there aren't. Sure, you'll find some sites with old Jewish jokes, books of Jewish humor included in Amazon's collection, and some hilarious YouTube videos, but you're unlikely to find a single web site that reports regularly on lots of funny things that are happening now in the Jewish world, and also comments on a wide variety of things Jewish that bring a grin, smile, chuckle, laugh, guffaw, or sometimes a sigh to readers.

That's our mission for Jewish Humor Central. We will be posting Jewish humor in the following categories: Jokes,  stories, parodies, satire, legends, books, films, Unbelievable But True, and In the News. Some will be new, and some will be classics. Occasionally some will not be really funny, but thought provoking.We'll include our own comments, but generally rely on the links to tell their own story.

We intend to include items from religious and secular sources of all Jewish denominations, and we will try to keep the site family-friendly. Any perceived slight to any group or subgroup will be unintentional, but we cannot guarantee that people without a sense of humor will not be offended by anything we post or link to.

For some of the first posts on this blog, we will be playing catch-up to introduce some existing web sites that capture the essence of Jewish humor in the categories listed above. After we establish this base, we will start to focus on new stories as they happen.
