As we begin a new year, we thought it would be a good time to restate our mission at Jewish Humor Central to our growing number of subscribers and regular readers.

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, or guffaw 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. We'll include our own comments, but generally rely on the links to tell their own story.

Occasionally, a post won't be really funny, but nostalgic, thought provoking, or just providing some yiddishe nachas.  Tomorrow's post is an example of this -- watch for it.

We intend to include items from religious and secular sources representing 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.

It's our pleasure to help you start your day with a smile, or provoke a Jewish thought.  Please feel free to post your comments or send us an email at any time to let us know if you think we're living up to our stated mission or if you would like to see any changes to the site.
