Why is this Monday different from all other Mondays? Because it's erev Pesach, and you're all probably overloaded with cleaning and cooking for the seder tonight. But that's no excuse for us to skip our Joke to Start the Week. Today it's also a Joke to Start the Week of Passover.
Today's joke teller is Rabbi Yitz Wyne, founder and spiritual leader of the Young Israel Aish of Las Vegas. He's usually busy as the rabbi of his congregation and as a talk show host with a weekly half-hour show on Jewish values called Life Is Great.
But humor is also part of his repertoire. After hours at the shul, Rabbi Wyne tests a few Passover jokes on an ambivalent audience. His topics include a drunk at the seder and two classic oldies -- the Jew at the queen's knighting ceremony and the great horseradish shortage. OK, so you've probably heard them, but how many times have you also heard the Haggadah?
Enjoy the jokes, the sedarim, and have a happy and kosher Pesach. We're taking two days off to enjoy Passover in Jerusalem with our family and we'll be back with our usual mix on Thursday.
