From where do we know that laughter and joking and being seen as enjoying life is to be done beyond just a joke to start a shiur? Just curious as shulchan aruch doesn't suggest jesting or joking too much Reply

There are several sources in Torah and Jewish literature that tell us to serve G-d with joy. In Deuteronomy 28:47 G-d tells the Jewish people that they will receive punishment for not serving Him with joy when they had the opportunity. In Psalms, KIng David reminds us to serve Hashem with joy. Maimonides tells us that being joyful is an obligatory part of performing mitzvot. Reply
