JTA's Andrew Silow-Carroll Analyzes the Jewish "He Had a Hat" Joke


There's more to many Jewish jokes than meets the eye. Andrew Silow-Carroll, editor-in-chief of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency has started a series of short YouTube videos in which he walks you through a classic Jewish joke and explains what it's all about.

In the last two months we shared three videos in which Andrew analyzed some classic Jewish jokes. Here's another one of his analyses, this one about the Jewish grandmother who takes her grandson to the beach and has an encounter with God.

We'll bring you more of these analyses of classic Jewish jokes from time to time. We hope there will be more of them soon.

Enjoy!
