Not-so-Kosher comedy by Jews
It's wonderful that many of the 20th-Century famous comedians were Jews, such as those in the video.It's a chillul Hashem, however, that many of those whose "comedy" consists primarily of profanity and vulgarity were/are also Jews, ranging from Lenny Bruce to Seinfeld to Sarah Silverman.That's what happens when a Jew is raised without Torah and mitzvos (meaning "commandments," not "good deeds").
