while Moses is at the top of Mount Sinai....
G: And remember
Moses, in the laws of keeping Kosher, never cook a calf in its mother's milk.
So you are saying we should never eat milk and meat together.
G: No, what
I'm saying is, never cook a calf in its mother's milk.
Lord forgive my ignorance! What you are really saying is we should wait six hours after eating meat to eat milk so the two
are not in our stomachs.
G: No, Moses,
what I'm saying is, don't cook a calf in its mother's milk!!!
Lord! Please don't strike me down for my stupidity! What you mean is we should have a separate set of dishes for milk and
a separate set for meat and if we make a mistake we have to bury that dish outside....
G: Ah, do
whatever you want....

TO A JEWISH MOTHER
his mother over for dinner. During the course of the meal, Brian's mother couldn't help but keep noticing how beautiful Brian's
roommate, Debbie, was.
had long been suspicious of a relationship between Brian and his roommate, Debbie, and this had only made her more curious.
course of the evening, while watching the two react, Mrs.Goldstein started to wonder if there was more between Brian and his
roommate than met the eye. Reading his mom's thoughts, Brian volunteered, "I know what you must be thinking, but I assure
you Debbie and I are just roommates."
week later, Debbie came to Brian saying, "Ever since your mother came to dinner, I've been unable to find the beautiful silver
gravy ladle. You don't suppose she took it, do you?"
"Well, I doubt it, but I'll write her a letter just to be sure." So he sat down and wrote:
I'm not saying that you "did" take the gravy ladle from the house, I'm not saying that you "did not" take the gravy ladle.
But the fact remains that one has been missing ever since you were here for dinner.
days later, Brian received a letter from his mother, which read:
I'm not saying that you "do" sleep with Stephanie, and I'm not saying that you "do not" sleep with Stephanie. But the fact
remains that if she were sleeping in her own bed, she would have found the gravy ladle by now.
the Day .. don't lie to a Jewish mother
A ROSH HA'SHANNAH
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, du... outside,
standing like a putzel... eh?"
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..."
in front of an African Grey that cocked his little head and said: "Vus? Kenst reddin Yiddish?"
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.
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.
on Rosh Hashana, 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.
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.
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.
you can daven, so daven...come on, everybody's looking at you!" Nothing.
Hashanah services were concluded, Meyer found that he owed his Shul buddies and the Rabbi over four thousand dollars. He marched
home, upset as hell, 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.
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 Hashana, why? Why did you do this to
an idiot," the parrot replied. "Think of the odds on Yom Kippur!"

driver brought the vehicle to a grinding halt. Unable to contain his astonishment, he turns to the driver: "Listen", he says,"when
you went through the red light, I didn't say anything. But, why, in G-d's name, are you stopping at a green light?"
driver looks at him as if the American was deranged: "Are you crazy?!", he shouts. "The other guy has a red light! Do you
