About the event

You light candles for Shabbat but accidentally start a fire.

You go to synagogue services but talk the whole time.

You go on Birthright and never come back to the US....

Are those situations a mitzvah (good) or a shandah (sort of bad)?

Let's find out with a panel of comedians and Jewish personalities:

Radio host and comedian Chanel Omari

Internet personality Talia Lichtstein

Rapper Kosha Dillz

Writer Arielle Kaplan

Watch us take the hit conversational card game “Mitzvah or Shandah” live for the second time. The show is interactive, hilarious, and very Jewish (but all are welcome!!) By the end, we'll hear from the audience and uncover the biggest mensch and menace.

Cartoonist and game creator Danielle Brody (aka Jews in Doodles) will host and moderate.
