You might ask, “What’s a nice, serious subject like Kabbalah doing in a book like this?” The answer lies in Kabbalah itself. Laughter is an involuntary reflex that transcends reason and lifts us above our physical state, allowing for an unselfconscious connection with something beyond the self – God, for example. A joyful person is open, available and willing to entertain concepts that don’t necessarily fit a logical paradigm. So jokes can become vehicles through which we can contemplate the divine.
