A dialogue 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.


Moses: Ohhhhhh! 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.


Moses: Oh, 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!!!


Moses: Oh, 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....





Three men are discussing their previous night's lovemaking. The Italian says, "My wife, I rubbed her all over with fine olive oil, then we make wonderful love. She screamed for five minutes."


The Frenchman says, "I smooth sweet butter on my wife's body, then we made passionate love. She screamed for half an hour."


The Jew says, "I covered my wife's body with schmaltz. We made love and she screamed for six hours."


The others say, "Six hours? How did you make her scream for six hours?"


He shrugs. "I wiped my hands on the drapes."





A Jewish matchmaker singing the praises of a female client, brings an eligible young man to see her. He takes one look at her and turns away to whisper to the matchmaker.


"You said she was young, and she's 50 for sure...You said she was beautiful, and she's ugly as sin. You said she was shapely, and she is big enough for two, you said...."


"You don't have to whisper," says the matchmaker, "She's also hard of hearing."





It was a Sabbath afternoon and Moshe stood looking out the window of the rabbi's study. "Rabbi," he said thoughtfully, "If one sees a cow drowning on the Sabbath, is it permitted to save her or should one let her drown?"


The rabbi looked up from his studies, "It is not permitted to break the Sabbath over a cow," he replied.


"That's too bad. A cow has fallen into the lake and she's going under," Moshe continued.


"Yes, it's too bad," the rabbi muttered this time, without looking up from his studies.


"Her head is going under now," Moshe continued after a pause. "She's certainly lost now. I feel sorry for the beast."


"Yes," muttered the rabbi, "it's very sad. But what can one do?


"And I feel sorry for you," Moshe said.


"Why me?" said the rabbi looking up.


"It was your cow."





Brian invited 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.

Mrs. Goldstein had long been suspicious of a relationship between Brian and his roommate, Debbie, and this had only made her more curious.

Over the 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."

About a 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?"

Brian said, "Well, I doubt it, but I'll write her a letter just to be sure." So he sat down and wrote:

Dear Mother, 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.

Several days later, Brian received a letter from his mother, which read:

Dear Son, 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.




Lesson of the Day .. don't lie to a Jewish mother





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, du... 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?"

"Vuh den? Chinese maybe?"

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 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.

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, 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.

"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 Hashana, why? Why did you do this to me?"

"Don't be an idiot," the parrot replied. "Think of the odds on Yom Kippur!"





An American tourist was riding in a taxi in Israel. As the taxi approached a red light, the tourist was shocked to see the driver drive straight through without even slowing down. Surprised as he was, he didn't say anything feeling himself a "guest" and not wanting to make waves.

The trip continued without event until the next intersection. This time the light was green and, to the American's dismay, the cab 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?"

The Israeli driver looks at him as if the American was deranged: "Are you crazy?!", he shouts. "The other guy has a red light! Do you want to get us killed?"

"Yes, and it's lucky you have," said the woman, drying her eyes. "I used them to patch the hole."

A Ukrainian merchant and a Jew happen to travel in the same compartment of a train. And, as always in cases like this, the Ukrainian anti-Semite is only happy to show his spite to everything Jewish, so this is how their discussion goes:

Merchant: "You know, sir, I have a habit of using three sorts of newspapers when traveling: one Ukrainian which I read, the other Russian which I use to wrap my breakfast in, and the Jewish one which I use to wipe myself when I use a toilet."

Jew: "Aren't you afraid, with all due respect, that this way, your behind is apt to become more clever than your head?"





The pilot was Jewish, and the copilot was Chinese. It was the first time they had flown together, and it was obvious by the silence that they didn't get along.

After 30 minutes, the Jewish Captain finally spoke. He said: "I don't like Chinese."

The Chinese copilot replied: "Ooooh, no like Chinese? Why is that?"

The pilot said: "You guys bombed Pearl Harbor. THAT'S WHY I don't like Chinese !"

The copilot said: "Nooooo, noooo ...Chinese not bomb Pearl Harbah. JAPANESE bomb Pearl Harbah, not Chinese !"

And the pilot answered: "Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese ... it doesn't matter. They're All alike."

Another 30 minutes of silence. Finally the copilot said: "I no like Jews."

The pilot replied: "Why not? WHY don't you like Jews?"

"The Jews sank the Titanic."

The pilot tried to correct him: "NO, NO !! The JEWS didn't sink the Titanic, It was an ICEBERG !"

"Iceberg, Goldberg, Rosenberg .. no matter ... ALL THE SAME !!"

The Israeli Prime Minister, Ehud Barak, is visiting his friend, U.S. President Bill Clinton, in Washington, DC.

In classic Clintonian style, the U.S. President offers a gift to his guest. "Here you go, Ehud" says Bill. "Try out this shiny new Cadillac. It's their finest model."

"Thank you, Mr. President, but I cannot accept this magnificent gift," replies the Prime Minister.

Ehud Barak replied, "It's very easy. All the lion needs is a new lamb each day!"

At the emergency meeting of the UN, the floor has been given to the Israeli Ambassador.

The Israeli Ambassador began, "Ladies and gentlemen before I commence with my speech, I want to relay an old Passover story to all of you...

When Moses was leading the Jews out of Egypt toward the Promised Land, he had to go through the nearly endless Sinai desert... The people became thirsty and needed water. So Moses struck the side of a mountain with his cane and a pond appeared with crystal clean, cool water. The people rejoiced and drank to their hearts' content.

Moses wished to cleanse his whole body, so he went over to the other side of the pond, took all of his clothes off and dove into the cool waters. Only when Moses came out of the water he discovered that all his clothes had been stolen ... And I have reasons to believe that the Palestinians stole his clothes."

Yasser Arafat, hearing this accusation, jumps out of his seat and screams, "This is a travesty. It is widely known that there were no Palestinians there at the time!!!"

"And with that in mind," said the Israeli Ambassador, "let me begin my speech..."

They asked him, "Rabbi, did you enjoy the flight?"

He threw his hands in the air crazily and replied, "ENJOY??? What was to enjoy? Oy! Every 5 minutes the sun was rising and setting! On with the tfillin, off with the tfillin, mincha, maariv, mincha, maariv.... Gevalt!!!!!!"





Two women came before wise King Solomon, dragging between them a young man in a three-piece suit. "This young lawyer agreed to marry my daughter," said one.

And so they haggled before the King until he called for silence.

"Bring me my biggest sword," said Solomon, "and I shall hew the young attorney in half. Each of you shall receive a half."

"Sounds good to me," said the first lady.

But the other woman said, "Oh Sire, do not spill innocent blood. Let the other woman's daughter marry him."

"But she was willing to hew him in two!" exclaimed the king's advisor.

"Indeed," said wise King Solomon. "That shows she is the TRUE mother-in-law."

So the devil goes over to the thermostat, turns the temperature up to 100 degrees Farenheit, and the humidity up to 80. He then goes back to the Tel-Aviv man to see how's he doing. To the devil's surprise, the man is doing just fine, "No problem! It's just like Tel-Aviv in June", the man says.

So the devil goes back over to the thermostat, and turns the temperature up to 150 degrees Farenheit and the humidity up to 90. He then goes back over to see how he's doing. The man is sweating a little, but overall looks comfortable. "No problem! Just like Tel-Aviv in July", the man says.

So, now the devil goes over to the thermostat, turns the temperature up to 200 degrees, and the humidity up to 100. When he goes back to see how the man is doing, the man is sweating profusely, and has taken off his shirt. Otherwise, he seems ok.

The Tel-Aviv man says, "No problem! Just like Tel-Aviv in August."

Now the devil is really perplexed. So he goes back to the thermostat, and this time turns the temperature all the way down to MINUS 150 DEGREES!

Immediately, hell freezes over! All the humidity in the air freezes up, and the whole place becomes a frigid, barren, frozen, deathly cold wasteland! When the devil goes back to see how the Tel-Aviv man is doing, he is shocked to discover the man is jumping up and down and cheering in obvious delight.

The devil immediately asks the man what's going on. To which the Tel-Aviv man replies:

The Arab asked "Please, I'm dying of thirst, can I have some water?".

The man replied "I don't have any water, but why don't you buy a tie? Here's one that goes nicely with your robes."

"OK, don't buy a tie. But to show you what a nice guy I am, I'll tell you that over that hill there, about 4 miles, is a nice restaurant. Walk that way, they'll give you all the water you want."

The Arab thanked him and walked away towards the hill and eventually disappeared.

George Bush positioned himself more directly in the man's view and asked again, "Aren't you Moses".

The man continued to peruse the ceiling.

George tugged at the man's sleeve and asked once again, "Aren't you Moses".

The man finally responded in an irritated voice, "Yes I am".

George B. asked him why he was so uppity and the man replied, "The last time I spoke to a Bush I had to spend forty years in the desert".

A well off southern woman living near an army base in the deep American south wanted to do something patriotic for the boys in uniform so she decided to invite 5 officers to a party to meet the local girls.

She calls the base and asks to speak to the general in charge. Excitedly she gets right to the point, about inviting 5 officers to a party to meet the local girls, but then adds 'Don't send any Jews!,' to which the General after a pause answers 'OK'.

'There must be some mistake,' she mumbles.

'No mam,' answers the Black captain. 'General Cohen never makes mistakes!!!'





A Hasidic Jew walks into a bank in New York City and asks for the loan officer. He says he is going to Europe on business for two weeks and needs to borrow $5,000.

The bank officer says the bank will need some kind of security for such a loan, so the man hands over the keys to a new Rolls Royce parked on the street in front of the bank. Everything checks out, and the bank agrees to accept the car as collateral for the loan.

An employee drives the Rolls into the bank's underground garage and parks it there.

Two weeks later, the man returns, repays the $5,000 and the interest, which comes to $15.41.

The loan officer says, "We are very happy to have had your business, and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little puzzled. While you were away, we checked you out and found that you are a multimillionaire. What puzzles us is why would you bother to borrow $5,000?"

The Hasidic Jew replied, "Where else in New York can I park my car for two weeks for 15 bucks?"

An archaeologist was digging in the Negev Desert in Israel and came upon a casket containing a mummy, a rather rare occurance in Israel, to say the least. After examining it, he called the curator of the Israel museum in Jerusalem.

"I've just discovered a 3,000 year old mummy of a man who died of heart failure!" the excited scientist exclaimed.

To which the curator replied, "Bring him in. We'll check it out."

A week later, the amazed curator called the archaeologist. "You were right about both the mummy's age and cause of death. How in the world did you know?"

"Easy. There was a piece of paper in his hand that said, '10,000 Shekels on Goliath'."
