CLARK – On Sunday, March 19 at 3 p.m. famed comedian Joel Chasnoff will appear at Temple Beth O’r-Beth Torah (TBOBT) for a free comedy show.

Joel is considered by many to be the premier Jewish comedian touring today. He has appeared on stage and screen in nine countries, in a USO comedy tour of Japan and Korea, in over 1000 Jewish events in North America and Europe, and on Israeli late-night TV.  He is the author of the comedic memoir, The 188th Crybaby Brigade.

Joel is appearing at the synagogue’s Sol Sern Memorial Program, a yearly tribute to the memory of Sol Sern, a member of the TBOBT family who passed away in 1993 and was much beloved for his sense of humor and good works in the community.
