Subject:  Stand Up!
Message:  I cant believe some of the questions asked in this forum. The best part though is the insightful and funny answers! Maybe we can have rabbis doing stand up comedy! With a little bit of humor it may be a little more engaging to learn torah. What do our sages say about humor and or comedy in the Torah. It doesnt seem there was much of it mentioned in the Torah.
   
Reply:  The Talmud says that we should always start our Torah study sessions with a little joke, so it's in there. There are many issues regarding comedy and jokes....
