A Yddishe Mame

Moy Volcovich


We all know that good humour is healthy and, why not, you could even call it therapeutic. Jewish Humour is somehow different. To talk about Jewish Humour is to talk about irony, philosophy and psychology but even many chapters on these subjects would not be enough to come up with a proper definition. These images will try to give us some clues of what Jewish Humour is by means of one of its best performers: the Yiddisher Mame.
