Bring Jewish Humor Central to Your Synagogue or JCC

 
Now is the time when Synagogue, Men's Club and Sisterhood presidents and JCC and Y program chairpersons start to plan events for the coming year.  
 
Jewish Humor Central is available as a resource to bring the humor that you've been getting daily in your email into your Jewish Community Center (JCC), Y, synagogue, or organization. 
 
After three years of 900 blog posts on the internet, Blogger-in-Chief Al Kustanowitz is now presenting the best of Jewish Humor Central in a series of talks illustrated with video clips.

Each presentation is approximately one hour long and includes about 30 minutes of funny video clips and 30 minutes of commentary. Presentation content and length can be adjusted to meet the needs of your organization. 

To book a date for 2012-2013, contact Al at 201-796-9273 or akustan@gmail.com.
