The Kerem House - Gedera 18, Tel Aviv,
Throughout history, Jews have laughed to keep from crying. In a country which has experienced its share of ups and downs, Israel has developed its own unique brand of humor. Benji tracks the changes in Israeli society through the lens of humor. Through viewing and discussing classic movies, TV shows, and comedy clips, the audience will develop a richer understanding of Israeli society.
