Ohav Shalom cordially invites the members of our Life and Legacy Society to a special VIP evening with Rabbi, Stand-up Comic, Author, Bob Alper! Be prepared to be entertained! Join us on ZOOM on Sunday the 21st at 6PM for : The Spirituality of Laughter: “A Jewish Look At The Holiness of Humor” 

A Jewish Look at the Holiness of Humor. This program,  explores how Judaism values the spiritual, psychological, and physiological benefits of laughter.  A mix of great Jewish learning and pure knee-slapping comedy is guaranteed!

Much as Bob would like to do stand-up comedy virtually, it simply doesn’t work. Stand-up is the most intimate of art forms, with the audience and performer as close to one another as possible, the antithesis of what protection from COVID-19 requires.

Bob is pleased to offer via Zoom is his widely-acclaimed “Spirituality of Laughter,” which has garnered rave reviews internationally. The program explores humor in ancient and modern Jewish tradition, and considers why laughter has been such an integral part of Jewish culture. It’s an engaging and inspiring event – while averaging two genuine belly laughs per minute!

This program is offered to Ohav  Shalom’s Life & Legacy Society members only, ZOOM registration required. Once you register (fill out your first and last name and email address) the ZOOM link will be sent to you. A reminder link will be sent the evening of approximately one hour before this special performance. REGISTER HERE.

NOTE: You are welcome to also join us at 7:15 as we open up another opportunity to meet with Bob Alper to the general Ohav community for:

Life Doesn’t Get Any Better Than This: The Holiness of Little Daily Dramas.

Rabbi Alper will tell stories from his book which the Detroit Free Press called ‘a volume of spiritual gems’ in a four-star review. The Miami Bureau of Jewish Education developed a study guide for this book, and uses it in family life education.  A mix of inspiring stories and pure belly laugh comedy is guaranteed!
