Sarah Silverman Jokes for Israel

Sarah Silverman might shock and offend those who have more delicate sensibilities, but according to her big sister, Rabbi Susan Silverman (who recently penned an article about the comedian in the Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles), The Big S is a mensch.

Sarah will show her love for Israel when she and cast members from her TV series headline “Comedy Without Borders,” a performance benefiting the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies (an organization located on Kibbutz Ketura, where Susan, her husband and their five children live).

AIES is a program dedicated to teaching Israeli, Palestinian and American students about environmental issues facing the Middle East. The performance, which also features Rosanne Barr, will be held November 29 at the University of Southern California.
