    Joe Bobker was born in 1947 in Ulm, a displaced persons' camp in Germany, to Polish Holocaust survivors Chaskel, zt”l, and Ida Bobker. On May 21, 1949, the family arrived in Sydney, Australia, on board the Luciano Marnaro liner as refugees from Adolf Hitler's reign of terror. The most searing influence on his Jewishness were his parents, two simple Yidden who saw over 131 family members turned into ashes by the genocidal Nazi war machine and yet never swayed from their beliefs. Their faith was clearer than vision.Mr. Bobker studied at the famed Mercaz HaRav Kook Yeshiva in Kiryat Moshe, Jerusalem. Over the years he has spoken frequently and is well known for his dozens of articles about Jews and Judaism in the 100-year-old Los Angeles Jewish Times, of which he was publisher and editor-inchief.
    Pirkei Avos with a Twist of Humor is a unique and whimsical journey through the impressive Sayings of Our Sages. Enjoy Joe Bobker's educational romp through Jewish ethics, heritage, law and lore, all stirred with a twist of humor and served with the intent of inspiring the reader to explore Judaism!

    • 4.5 Stars , Very Good

      Might not be apparent , written by a Frum person. The book does not go through Pirkei Avos verse by verse , or even chapter by chapter. Sort of by over arching themes. He quotes part of a Mishna and a gives a brief discussion and/or explanation, followed by a joke. I often don't get the connection between the discussion and the joke and most of the time the discussion is better than the joke.
