“Our Writers & Readers series is not only about bringing
award-winning authors and writers to Cleveland, but also
exposing our patrons to a variety of diverse and interesting
thought leaders,” said Felton Thomas, Director of CPL.
“Rabbi Telushkin is a dynamic speaker that uses wit and humor to
engage his audience.”
Rabbi Telushkin’s reputation and appeal extend far beyond the
Jewish community. His engaging and amusing volume Jewish
Humor: What the Best Jewish Jokes Say About the Jews appeals
to readers of all faiths (or none) and provides a glimpse of the
wit and wisdom he shares with live audiences. True to his
calling, the Rabbi uses jokes, stories and parables to instruct
as well as amuse. His other works include Jewish Wisdom, The
Book of Jewish Values and two award-winning volumes of A
Code of Jewish Ethics.
His acclaimed book Words That Hurt, Words That Heal
teaches how and when to criticize, how to keep disagreements
from becoming disasters, and the one technique that will prevent
you, even when angry, from destroying relationships with words.
This event is free and open to the public. Seating is available
on a first-come, first-served basis. Books will be available for
