Written by three loud, loony comedians, “A Field Guide to the Jewish People,” addresses some of the countless complicated questions of Judaism through a comedic lens.
Those questions include: Why do random Jewish holidays keep springing up unexpectedly? Why are yarmulkes round? Who was the first Jewish comedian? Or as it says on the book cover: “Where Do They Come From, What to Feed Them, What They Have Against Foreskins, How Come They Carry Each Other Around on Chairs, Why They Fled Egypt by Running Straight to a Large Body of Water, and Much More. Maybe Too Much More.”
The book is a laugh-filled read that may provide some insight into the myriad mysteries of the religion, and maybe tell you why Elvis is like Moses.
