Did your father not address you as Esau, and did you not respond?’” (Genesis Rabbah 70:19).

Live from New York, It’s Saturday Night’s Jews!

From the very start, Jews and Jewish humor figured prominently. “Saturday Night Live waved the wand and said ‘Let there be Jews,’ and there were Jews, on the network, on the show, openly discussing their lives in sketches, as writers and actors,” says Marilyn Suzanne Miller, one of the show’s original writers.
