DrayMakhers November: Jewish Humor

Join KlezCalifornia for an hour of community culture building, hosted by Evie Groch, with topics rotating on a three-month cycle. On November 10, come prepared with five Jewish jokes or riddles to share while you enjoy others’ jokes and riddles. Be ready to participate unmasked (i.e., with your video on) and to laugh!

Definition: In a cultural community like ours, we find lots of gantze makhers, (“big shots”; gantse = complete/entire; makhers = big shots, fixers). If we sort ourselves into three specific groups that offer a mixture of laughter, appreciation of cuisine, and playtime, we come up with DrayMakhers (dray = three). What a mekhaye (pleasure/delight) to be part of the DrayMakhers! 

Next month will be conversation about Jewish food, and the following month thinking peoples’ games with Jewish themes. If you have any questions: contact coordinator Evie Groch.
