  An Englishman, an American, and an Israeli are all out walking 
one day, when suddenly surrounded by cannibals.
  The cannibals rapidly capture the travelers, and tell them, 
"Hey, we're cannibals, and we're going to cook you up and eat 
you, but since we ARE civilized cannibals, we're going to grant 
you each one wish, first."
  The Englishman asks for, "A nice spot of sherry," which the 
cannibals provide, and which the Englishman drinks down, 
thoroughly enjoying the drink.
  The American says, "What I'd really like is a nice Cuban cigar."
The cannibals give him a really top-rate Cuban cigar, which the 
American thoroughly enjoys.
  Finally, the cannibals turn to the Israeli and ask, "Okay, now 
what would you like?"
  The Israeli responds, "What I'd REALLY like would be a good 
swift KICK in the seat of the pants!"
  The cannibals think this is the most ridiculous request they've 
ever heard! But being good for their word, they oblige, take aim, 
line up boot to touch ass, and give the Israeli a good swift kick 
that send the Israeli flying a couple of feet into the air. While 
in mid-air, the Israeli reaches into his shirt, pulls out an Uzi 
machine gun, and rapidly shoots down all of the cannibals.
  The American and the Englishman are just astounded!
  They ask, "If you had the machine gun all this time, why didn't 
you just use it right away in the first place?!"
  The Israeli responds nonchalantly, "I didn't want to be accused 
of being the aggressor."



You may be a Jewish Redneck if...

You light your shabbos candles from your cigarette

Your belt buckle is bigger than a yarmulke

Instead of a noisemaker, you've fired a shotgun at the sound 
of Haman's name

You have a gun rack in your sukkah

You think KKK is a symbol for Really Really Kosher

You think marrying your first cousin is required according to 
Jewish Law

You don't ride on shabbat because your car is up on blocks

When someone shouts l'chaim you respond l'howdy

You are saving a bottle of Mogen David for some special occasion

You think a good Bar Mitzvah gift is time shared on your hunting lease.

sign of the cross.

safely under the car which then gently sets down.
  After recovering, the passenger rabbi says, "Now Saul, I don't mean 
to be ungrateful but when that truck was about to hit us, why did you 
make the sign of the cross?
  The rabbi driving replied, "Because I didn't have time to make the

drinking in the company of undesirable characters -- even before 
the sun set on the evening of the Sabbath. The Rabbi called them

went to the congregation and asked for a raise in salary.  After 
much consideration and discussion they passed a rule that when the 
Rabbi's family expanded, so would his paycheck.
  After 5 or 6 children, this started to get expensive so the
congregation decided to hold a meeting again to discuss the Rabbi's 
pay situation.  As you can imagine, there was much yelling and 
bickering.  Finally, the Rabbi got up and spoke to the crowd.
  "Having children is an act of God!" he said.

up and, in his frail voice said, "Point of information - snow and 
rain are also acts of God, but when we get too much of it, we wear 
rubbers!"

they were after walking so far. Unfortunately, they were not
able to drink from the walls of water on either side of them, 
as they were made up of saltwater.
  Then, a fish from that wall of water told Moses that he and 
his family had heard the complaints of the people, but that they
could remove the salt from the water and force it out of their
mouths like a fresh water fountain for the Israelites to drink
from as they walked by.
  Moses accepted this kind fish's offer. But before the fish and
his family began to help, they told Moses they had a request. They
asked that in return for their help, they and their descendants 
should always be present in future, at the seder meal that would
be established to commemorate the Exodus from Egypt.
  Moses agreed to this, and he gave them their name which remains
to this very day, for he said to them,  "Go Filter Fish!"


 

  A Jew, a Christian and a Muslim were having a discussion about 
who was the most religious.
  "I was riding my camel in the middle of the Sahara," exclaimed 
the Muslim. "Suddenly a fierce sandstorm appeared from nowhere. 
I truly thought my end had come as I lay next to my camel while 
we being buried deeper and deeper under the sand. But I did not 
lose my faith in the Almighty Allah, I prayed and prayed and 
suddenly, for a hundred meters all around me, the storm had stopped.
Since that day I am a devout Muslim and am now learning to recite 
the Koran by memory."
  "One day while fishing," started the Christian, "I was in my little
dinghy in the middle of the ocean. Suddenly a fierce storm appeared 
from nowhere. I truly thought my end had come as my little dinghy was
tossed up and down in the rough ocean. But I did not lose my faith in
Jesus Christ, I prayed and prayed and suddenly, for 300 meters all 
around me, the storm had stopped. Since that day I am a devout 
Christian and am now teaching young children about Him."
  "One day I was walking down the road," explained the Jew, "I was 
in my most expensive designer outfit in the middle of New York city.
Suddenly I saw a black bag on the ground in front of me appear from 
nowhere. I put my hand inside and found a million dollars in cash. 
I truly thought my end had come as it was a Saturday and we are not
allowed to handle money on Saturdays. But I did not lose my faith in
God, I prayed and prayed and suddenly...for 500 meters all around me,
it was Tuesday!"



  A love-lorn couple were engaged by the question: Is it ok to have
sex on the day of Sabbath? (If sex were work, this would be forbidden)
  So the man went to the pastor and posed his question. After some 
thought, the pastor replied that sex was work. Not feeling satisfied 
with the lack of proper explanation (after all, the pastor was celibate,
what could he know about sex?), he approached the vicar, who after 
pondering the question, agreed with the pastor.
  As a last resort, the man approached a rabbi with the same question:
Is sex work or play? The rabbi, a man of the world, answered 
immediately "Son, sex must definitely be play; for if it were work, 
my wife would have someone else do it for her".



  A journalist, assigned to the Jerusalem Bureau, takes an apartment
overlooking the Wailing Wall.  Every day when she looks out, she sees
an old Jewish man praying vigorously.  So, the journalist goes down 
and introduces herself to the old man.
  She asks, "You come every day to the wall.  How long have you done
that and what are you praying for?"
  The old man replies, "I have come here to pray every day for 25 years.
In the morning I pray for world peace, and then for the brotherhood of 
man.  I go home, have a cup of tea, and come back and pray for the 
eradication of illness and disease from the earth."
  The journalist is amazed. "How does it make you feel to come here 
every day for 25 years and pray for these things?" she asks.
  The old man looks at her sadly. "Like I'm talking to a wall."
 


  The Chief Rabbi of Israel and the Pope are in a meeting in Rome.  
The Rabbi notices an unusually  fancy phone on a side table in the
Pope's private chambers.
  "What is that phone for?" he asks the pontiff.
  "It's my direct line to the Lord!"
   The Rabbi is skeptical, and the Pope notices. The Holy Father
insists that the Rabbi trys it out, and, indeed, he is connected to 
the Lord.  The Rabbi holds a lengthy discussion with Him.
  After hanging up the Rabbi says. "Thank you very much. This is
great!  But listen, I want to pay for my phone charges."  
  The Pope, of course refuses, but the Rabbi is steadfast and
finally,  the pontiff gives in.  He checks the counter on the phone 
and says, "Allright!  The charges were 100,000 Lira."
  The Chief Rabbi gladly hands over a packet of bills. A few months
later, the Pope is in Jerusalem on an official visit.  In the Chief
Rabbi's chambers he sees a phone identical to his and learns it also
is a direct line to the Lord.  The Pope remembers he has an urgent 
matter that requires divine consultation and asks if he can use the 
Rabbi's phone.
  The Rabbi gladly agrees, hands him the phone, and the Pope chats 
away. After hanging up, the Pope offers to pay for the phone charges. 
  The Rabbi looks on the phone counter and says, "1 Shekel 50!" 
  The Pope looks surprised, "Why so cheap!?!"
  The Rabbi smiles, "Local call."



  When Abraham Liebowitz gets to school he discovers that he is the 
only Jewish kid in the class. But it's a decent town and nobody really
bothers him.
  One day the teacher asks the class "Who was the greatest person who 
ever lived? and why?" And to make it interesting she held a twenty 
dollar bill in the air and said, "whoever gives the best answer will 
get this twenty dollars".
  All of the kids called out their guesses.
  One said "George Washington, because he was the father of our country."
  "That's excellent," said the teacher.
  Another said, "Abraham Lincoln - because he freed the slaves."
  "That's also good," said the teacher, reluctant to bestow an excellent,
but still being polite.
  One little girl said, "Joan of Arc - because she saved France."
  Another excellent choice said the teacher.
  Then Abraham Liebowitz, raised his hand.
  So the teacher called on him. "Abraham, who do you think was the 
greatest person who ever lived, and why?"
  And Abraham said, "Jesus Christ."
  The teacher was shocked. "Abraham," she said "I'm very surprised. Class,
I think we can all agree that Abraham should get the twenty dollars." 
  And she handed Abraham Liebowitz the money.
  At recess, the teacher was still very impressed. So she asked Abraham 
why he said Jesus.
  Abraham said, "Look, personally I think Moses was the greatest person
who ever lived, but...business is business!" 


 
  Three Reform Rabbis were in a terrible auto wreck. None survived. 
One minute they were driving along the highway, talking and laughing
and joking, and the next, BOOM! they were before the creator of all.  
  Shaking his head, The Omnipotent One looks at the three. 
  "Reform I can understand. But where will it end?" 
  "You! Goldblum! The ashtrays in your temple so My people could 
smoke while the Torah was being read? I can live with that. Men 
are weak, but the Word is strong!"  
  Goldblum sighed with relief. 
  "Bauman! Really, I can accept My people need to eat, but really, 
Serving Ham Sandwiches to the devout at the temple during Yom Kippur?"  
  Bauman hung his head in shame. 
  "Even that I can allow to pass, even with the eating of that which
is not Kosher. I'm not pleased at all with the playing fast and loose 
with my people, but I can accept these indiscresions."  
  Finally, he turns to the third rabbi and says, "You, on the other 
hand have gone to far!  Am I asking too much?  No, you flaunt the 
world at me, even on the holiest days of Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur
by putting out a sign saying..."Closed for the Holiday!"



  Meyer, a lonely widower, was walking home along Delancy Street one
day wishing something wonderful would happen into his life when he 
passed a Pet Store and heard a squawking voice shouting out in Yiddish,
"Quawwwwk...vus macht du...yeah...outside, standing like a putzel eh?"
  Meyer rubbed his eyes and ears. Couldn't believe it.  The proprietor
sprang out of the door and grabbed Meyer by the sleeve.
  "Come in here, fella, and check out this parrot..."
  Meyer stood in front of an African Grey that cocked his little head
and said, "Vus?  Kenst reddin Yiddish?"
  Meyer turned excitedly to the store owner. "He speaks Yiddish?"
  In a matter of moments, Meyer had placed five hundred dollars down 
on the counter and carried the parrot in his cage away with him. All
night he talked with the parrot.  In Yiddish.  He told the parrot 
about his father's adventures coming to America.  About how beautiful
his mother was when she was a young bride.  About his family. About 
his years of working in the garment center.  About Florida. The parrot
listened and commented. They shared some walnuts. The parrot told him 
of living in the pet store, how he hated the weekends.  They both went
to sleep.
  Next morning, Meyer began to put on his tfillin, all the while,
saying his prayers.  The parrot demanded to know what he was doing,
and when Meyer explained, the parrot wanted some too.  Meyer went
out and hand-made a miniature set of tfillin for the parrot.
The parrot wanted to learn to daven and learned every prayer.
He wanted to learn to read Hebrew so Meyer spent weeks and months,
sitting and teaching the parrot, teaching him Torah. In time, Meyer
came to love and count on the parrot as a friend and a Jew.
He had been saved.
  One morning, on Rosh Hashona, Meyer rose and got dressed and was 
about to leave when the parrot demanded to go with him. Meyer explained
that Shul was not place for a bird but the parrot made a terrific
argument and was carried to Shul on Meyer's shoulder.  Needless to 
say, they made quite a spectacle, and Meyer was questioned by everyone, 
including the Rabbi and Cantor.  They refused to allow a bird into the 
building on the High Holy Days but Meyer convinced them to let him in 
this one time, swearing that parrot could daven. 
Wagers were made with Meyer.  Thousands of dollars were bet (even odds)
that the parrot could NOT daven, could not speak Yiddish or Hebrew, etc.
  All eyes were on the African Grey during services. The parrot perched
on Meyer's shoulder as one prayer and song passed - Meyer heard not a
peep from the bird.  He began to become annoyed, slapping at his
shoulder and mumbling under his breath, "Daven!" Nothing.
  "Daven...parrot, you can daven, so daven...come on, everybody's
looking at  you!"  Nothing.
  After Rosh Hashanah services were concluded, Meyer found that he 
owed his Shul buddies and the Rabbi over four thousand dollars. He 
marched home, pissed off, saying nothing.  Finally several blocks 
from the temple the bird began to sing an old Yiddish song and was
happy as a lark.  Meyer stopped and looked at him. "You miserable 
bird, you cost me over four thousand dollars.  Why?  After I made 
your tfillin and taught you the morning prayers, and taught you to
read Hebrew and the Torah.  And after you begged me to bring you 
to Shul on Rosh Hashona, why?  Why did you do this to me?"
  "Don't be a schmuck," the parrot replied.  "Think of the odds
on Yom Kippur!"

  There was this rabbi in a small town, and he was really curious about
why so many people ate pork. He really wanted to try some, but there was
nowhere in town he could go and not be seen. One weekend, he made and
excuse and traveled to a distant town, went into a restaurant, and
ordered the first pork-containing item on the menu. While he's waiting
for his order to be prepared, the president of his congregation walks
in. He sees the rabbi and asks if he could join him for dinner, and the
rabbi has no choice but to agree.
  A while later, the waiter returns with the rabbi's meal. He takes the
cover off the platter, and there is a whole roast pig, with an apple in
its mouth.
  The congregation president is more than a little surprised. "What a
fancy place," explains the rabbi quickly. "Just look at how they serve
an apple."



  Two orthodox Jews went to Pincus the tailor for new suits. "Listen,
Pincus," one said, "the last suits you made for us were sort of gray.
We want black suits, the darkest black cloth that we can get."
  "See this cloth?" Pincus said, fingering a bolt of fabric. "This is
the stuff they make nuns' habits from. There ain't no blacker cloth."
  A few weeks later, the two men were walking down the street in their
new suits when they passed two nuns. Impulsively, one of the men went 
up to the nuns and matched his suit against their habits. Becoming 
angry, he muttered something to his friend and they both walked off. 
  "What did that man want?" one nun asked the other. 
  "I don't know," she replied, "He looked at my garment, said something
in Latin and left." 
  "What did he say?" 
  "He said, 'Pincus Fucktus'."

She starts looking for a repair shop.  After a long and frustrating 
search she finds herself in an area where many shop signs are in 
Hebrew.  Finally, she notices that one of the stores has all kinds 
of clocks and wristwatches displayed merrily in the window.  She
walks into the shop and puts her wristwatch on the counter in front
of the proprietor.
  "Would you please fix my wristwatch? she asked?
  "Madam, I do not repair clocks or wristwatches. I am a Moel, 
I perform circumcisions."
  Puzzled, she asks, "Then why on earth do you have all these 
clocks and wristwatches in your window?"
  "Well, what should I have in my window?"

mitzvah, cost me a fortune to educate him.  Then he tells me last 
week he has decided to  be a Christian.  Rabbi, where did I go 
wrong?"

brought my boy up in the faith, put him through University, cost 
me a fortune, then one day he too comes and tells me he has 
decided to become a Christian." 
  "What did you do?" asked the Lawyer.
  "I turned to God for the answer" replied the Rabbi.
  "And what did he say?" pressed the Lawyer.
  "God said, 'Funny you should come to me...' "



  Isaac and Hymie were two tired Brooklyn businessmen who were
ordered to take a Caribbean cruise by their doctors. The second 
night out on the way to Martinique they were leaning against the 
rail, looking at the big bright tropical moon on the sea, really 
starting to unwind.
  Suddenly the rail broke and both Jews fell screaming into the
ocean. They came up gasping and spluttering and saw the ship 
sailing away from them into the darkness. As Isaac had fallen 
overboard he had managed to grab a life preserver, and now he 
clung to it, desperately treading water.
  "Hyman!" he called out, "Hyman, can you float alone?"
  "Oy vay!" called out Hymie from the dark waters. "What a time to
talk business!"

everything."

the first one after a while, "How do you arrange for a flood?"



  A man walks into a bar and sees a beautiful woman sitting 
at the end of it. She is so beautiful he cannot take his mind 
off her, so he calls the bartender over and says, "Take that 
woman a drink on me."
  The bartender says, "It won't work."
  "What do you mean, it won't work?"
  "That woman," says the bartender, "is a hard-hearted bitch. 
You won't get anywhere with her. Nobody does."
  "OK," says the guy. "How about this: you got any Spanish fly?"
  "Spanish fly? No," says the bartender, "I've got Jewish fly."
  "So, what the hell is Jewish fly?"
  "I don't know; I've never used it. You want to give it a try?"
  "Yes," says the guy, and the next chance he gets, on his way 
to the men's room, he reaches behind the woman's back and drops 
the stuff in her drink.
  Nothing happens for a long time. But then all of a sudden he 
feels her body close to his, and her voice is whispering hotly 
in his ear, and she's saying, "I can't stand it any more! You 
excite me so much! Take me shopping!"

him in the face.

   "That was for Pearl Harbor," the Jewish man says.
   "But I'm Chinese!"
   "Chinese, Japanese, what's the difference?" The Jewish man 
sits back down.

I don't know you, so you must be a stranger. If I answer you now, 
I'll have to invite you to my home. You're handsome, and I have a 
beautiful daughter. You will both fall in love and you will want

  A young Jewish boy has been having trouble with school. 
In fact, he has just been kicked out of three private Jewish 
schools in a row. There being no more Jewish schools in town, 
his parents decide to send him to catholic school.
  A month later, to his parent's surprise, he is still in 
school and hasn't gotten in any trouble.
  In another month, his midterm grades come home--and he has 
aced every class!
  His parents ask him, "What's so great about this catholic 
school? How come you got thrown out of three good Jewish schools 
only to do well in this Christian one?"
   "Well," the boy answers, "These Catholics scare me. In the 
whole history of the school, they've only admitted one other Jew."
   "What of it?" His dad asks.

  A Rabbi and a Priest were sitting together on a train, and the 
Rabbi leans over and asks, "So how high can you advance in your 
organization?"
  The Priest says, "If I am lucky, I guess I could become a Bishop."
  "Well, could you get any higher than that?" asks the Rabbi.
  "I suppose that if my works are seen in a very good light that I 
might be made an Arch Bishop," said the Priest a bit cautiously.
  "Is there any way that you might go higher than that?"
  "If all the Saints should smile, I guess I could be made a 
Cardinal", said the priest.
  "Could you be anything higher than a Cardinal?" probed the Rabbi.
  Hesitating a little bit, the Priest said, "I suppose that I could 
be elected Pope, but..."
  So the Rabbi says "And could you be anything higher than that?  
Is there any way to go up from being the Pope?"
  "What?!  I should be the Messiah himself?!"
  The Rabbi leaned back and said, "One of our boys made it!"



  In a certain town somewhere in the USA, there happened to be a
vivid religious community. On one side of the road, there was a
catholic church, on the other side of the road was located Temple
Beit Immanuel - a reform jewish synagogue.
  Now, it happened that a wealthy parishioner bought the Catholic 
priest a brand new Cadillac, with the state of the art everything, 
plum red color and white leather upholstery. He accepted graciously, 
and was very proud of the car, for about two weeks...
  You see, the rabbi of TBI had several very wealthy members in his
congregation, and started working on them like a good rabbi ought 
to, and after about two weeks, on the friday, he had an identical 
car - to the minutest of details.
  Of course the Catholic priest became upset. He had to do something 
about this terrible ... terrible ... uuurgh. So he called everybody 
to a big mass, celebrating the sunday, and sprinkled the car with 
holy water, using frankincense and a lot of latin words, meaningless 
to the most. But the rabbi wasn't lost behind a carriage ­ he 
gathered a minyan next shabbat, around the car, took a hacksaw, and
cut off a 1/2 inch from the cars tailpipe.

  A Jewish father, Moisha, was paid a visit by his eldest son Yitzak...
"Father, I am going to marry!"
  His father begins to dance with joy and sing Hava Nagila... "Tell me,
is she a good Jewish girl?" says the father. "What is her name?"
  "O'Brien," replies the son... "She's Catholic..."
  "Oy!" says the father.... "But are you happy?"
  "I'm very very happy," says the son..
  OK...as long as you're happy ... my blessings to you both," replies
 Moisha. But the father is still counting on his remaining sons, 
Schlemiel and Chutzpah.
  Schlemiel calls on his father the next evening.
  "Father... I too will be married soon!"
  Again, Moisha breaks out in a dance and sings God's praises. "What
is her name?," implores the father.
  "Kazalopodopolous," says the son. "She's Greek Orthodox."
  "Oy," says Moisha. "But are you happy?"
  "I'm happy, Father."
  "OK ... then you, too, have my blessing," intones Moisha. 
Dejected, Moisha goes to the Temple to pray. "Please God... let my
remaining son, Chutzpah, marry a nice Jewish girl to raise nice Jewish
children in your eyes ... PLEASE," he cries out.
  The next week, Chutzpah comes to his father excitedly and exclaims,
"Father!!, I am to wed in the spring!"
  "HER NAME? WHAT IS HER NAME?", his father immediately demands.
  "Goldberg!" says Chutzpah! Moisha is beside himself with joy! 
"Praise God! Praise the Prophets!" Turning to Chutzpah, he asks, 
"Is she Doctor Goldberg's daughter Shelley, from Los Angeles?"
   "No," says Chutzpah.
   "Hmmm," says Moisha... "Must be attorney Goldberg's daughter 
Rachel from Beverly Hills?"
  "Ah... no, Father," says Chutzpah...
  "Well, then, what is her first name, my youngest, truest, most
beautiful son?"
  "Whoopi".
