Funny Pesach for Families at Beit Hatfutsot

During Chol HaMoed Pesach, the Museum of the Jewish People at Beit Hatfutsot celebrates the Jewish humor around the world in a comprehensive exhibition: Let There Be Laughter!

What makes Jews so funny?  And how did “The People of the Book” turn out to be superstar writers, producers and comedians? The museum takes a lighthearted look at the origins of Jewish humor and the major contributions of Jews to the rise of a global industry.

The exhibition includes cutting edge interactive stations to allow visitors to have their say about what makes them laugh. Our vision is that the exhibition, rich in history and challenging questions about culture in the present, will also become a space of laughter and joy for anyone who walks in.

In addition, we invite you to download the “BH Challenge” app, that includes games, riddles and puzzles during your museum tour.
