The 36 Best Jewish Memes Of All Time

Every day this week we’ll be highlighting classic and cutting-edge Jewish comedy, from the best Jewish comedians in the Trump era to the best jokes told by non-Jews about Jews. L’chaim!

The Jews have taken to memes as we’ve taken to many mediums of creative expression and social criticism over the millennia: with wild enthusiasm.

Jews have embraced the phenomena of internet memes — a sort of homemade pairing of popular images and words that have a joking and often biting connotation — resulting in a massive and constantly growing crop of bizarre, titillating, and comic Jewish content. Whether you’re already a proud member of several Jewish meme groups, or you don’t know your mincha from your ma’ariv, there’s something for everyone.

Following a mass search of the Internet, here are the Forward’s 36 favorite Jewish memes:
