Quest | Issue 7 | The Joke

10.00

Founded by Rabbi Louis Jacobs, the journal Quest, as it was in the 1960s, existed to reflect the age’s “tensions, problems, ideas and achievements.” Although today we are faced with a very different set of circumstances, the imperative to interrogate those circumstances remains unchanged.

This second issue of the relaunched Quest takes up the theme of the 'The Joke' -- strong-arming readers on a side-splitting journey from Bernard Kops' East End to contemporary Israel - where Holocaust jokes are rife - and Essex - where J-swipe is endemic. We ask if the Jewish joke is post-punchline, whether Israeli paratroopers rendered it redundant, or whether its contemporary resurgence merely provides some material for Jewish millennials’ claims to cultural difference.
