What, No Birthday Present?

A Jewish gentleman, fresh out of gift ideas, bought his mother-in-law a large plot in an expensive cemetery.

On her next birthday, he bought her nothing. She was quick to comment loud and long on his thoughtlessness.

“Well, you haven’t used the gift I gave you last year.”

The Lost Sons

A Jewish father was concerned about his son who was about  a year away from his Bar Mitzvah but was sorely lacking in his
knowledge of the Jewish faith. To remedy this he sent his son to Israel to experience his heritage.

A year later, the young man returned home. “Father, thank you for sending me to the land of our Fathers,” the son said.
“It was wonderful and enlightening; however, I must confess that while in Israel, I converted to Christianity.

“Oi vey,” replied the father, “what have I done?”

So in the tradition of the patriarchs, he went to his best friend and sought his advice and solace. “It is amazing that you should come to me,” stated his friend, “I, too, sent my son to Israel and he returned a Christian.”

So in the traditions of the Patriarchs, they went to the Rabbi. “It is amazing that you should come to me,” stated the Rabbi,
“I, too, sent my son to Israel and he returned a Christian.

“What is happening to our sons? Brothers, we must take this to the Lord,” said the Rabbi.

They fell to their knees and began to wail and pour out their hearts to the Almighty. As they prayed, the clouds above
opened, and a mighty voice stated, “Amazing that you should come to Me. I, too, sent My Son to Israel …”

A Good Jewish Story

A Jewish businessman in Chicago decided to send his son to Israel to absorb some of
the culture of the homeland. When the son returned, the
father asked him to tell him about his trip.

The son said, “Pop, I had a great time in Israel. By the way, I
converted to Christianity.”

“Oy, vey,”said the father. “Vot haf I dun?”

He decided to go ask his friend Jacob what to do.

Jake said, “Funny you should ask. I too sent my son to Israel , and he also came back a Christian. Perhaps we should go see the rabbi and ask him
what we should do.” So they went to see the
rabbi.

The rabbi said,”Funny you should ask. I too sent my son to Israel . He also came back a Christian. What is happening to our young people? Perhaps we should go talk
to God and ask him what to do.”

The three of them prayed and explained what had happened to their sons and
asked God what to
do.

Suddenly a voice came loud and
clear from Heaven.
“Funny you should ask. I, too,
sent my Son to Israel . . . .

PHILANTHROPY

A visitor to Israel attended a recital and concert at the Moscovitz
Auditorium. He was quite impressed with the architecture and the
acoustics.

He inquired of the tour guide, “Is this magnificent auditorium named after
Chaim Moscovitz, the famous Talmudic scholar?”
“No,” replied the guide.

“It is named after Sam Moscovitz, the writer.”

“Never heard of him. What did he write?”

“A check”, replied the guide.

THE PARKING SPACE


Moishe is driving in Jerusalem. He’s late for a meeting, he’s looking for a parking place, and can’t find one.

In
desperation, he turns towards heaven and says: “Lord, if you find me a
parking place, I promise that I’ll eat only kosher, respect Shabbos, and
all the holidays.”

Miraculously, a place opens up just in front of him. He turns his face up to heaven and says, “Never mind, I just found one!”

THE SINKING BOAT


Two Jews, Morty and Saul, are out one afternoon on a lake when their boat
starts sinking.
Saul says to Morty, “So listen, Morty, you know I don’t swim

so well.”
Morty remembers how to carry another swimmer from his lifeguard

class when he was just a kid, so he begins tugging Saul toward shore. After
ten minutes, he begins to tire.
Finally about 100 feet from shore, Morty
asks Saul, “So Saul, do you suppose you could float alone?” Saul replies,
“Morty, this is a hell of a time to be asking for money!”
