Ben was in a hospital ward with two non-Jews. On his first morning, Ben puts on his tefillin, but the non-Jews can’t figure out what he is doing. Finally, one says to the other, “Look how smart those Jews are! He’s taking his own blood pressure.

Morry, the President of Edgware Amalgamated shul, is not as ‘orthodox’ as the shul’s committee would like him to be. But he knows a lot of influential people and gets things done. So they don’t complain too much about him.
This year, on the shabbes before Rosh Hashana, they decide to give him the honour of an aliyah and the shul’s gabbai goes over to him to tell him of the decision.
But Morry panics. “Oy vay, I just can’t do this,” he says to the gabbai. “I can’t read Hebrew properly and I’ll embarrass everyone when I try to read the blessings. Please give the honour to someone else.”
“But Morry,” says the gabbai, “you must accept some kind of honour – after all, you are the shul’s President.”
“I understand that,” says Morry. “Is there some other kind of honour that doesn’t require me to speak Hebrew?”
“How about gelilah?” replies the gabbai.
“What is gelilah?” asks Morry, looking puzzled.
The gelilah gets involved just after the torah is lifted at hagbah,” replies the gabbai. “As soon as the torah is lowered, the gelilah puts on the cover, breastplate and crown. The gelilah can then sit down – his job is over.”
“Well that seems fine to me. I can handle that,” says Morry. “It’s a deal. I accept.”
Fifteen minutes later, it’s hagbah time and Morry is up there waiting for the torah to be lowered. He then puts on the cover, breastplate and crown as instructed and goes back to his seat feeling very pleased with himself. The gabbai immediately goes over to him and whispers, “Morry, I didn’t mean on YOU, I meant on the torah!”

Yitzhak and Fay are travelling by car to Scotland. It is now quite late in the evening and after many hours on the road they are too tired to continue. So they decide to find somewhere to sleep for six hours and then get back on the road. They find a nice hotel and book a room.
Later, when they check out, the receptionist hands them a bill for $250. Yitzhak is angry because the charge is so high. He tells the receptionist that the rooms aren’t worth anywhere near $250 and asks to speak the Manager.
The Manager listens to Yitzhak and explains that the hotel has an Olympic-sized pool and a conference centre that were available for Yitzhak and Fay to use.
“But we didn’t use them,” Yitzhak complains.
“Well, they are here and you could have,” explains the Manager.
The Manager then explains they could have taken in the variety show for which the hotel is famous. “The best entertainers in the UK perform here,” he says.
“But we didn’t go to any of those shows,” complains Yitzhak again.
“Well, we have them and you could have,” the Manager replies.
Yitzhak gives up, writes out a cheque and gives it to the Manager.
“But sir,” the Manager says, “this cheque is only made out for $75.”
“That’s right,” says Yitzhak. “I charged you $175 for sleeping with my wife Fay.”
“But I didn’t,” exclaims the Manager.
“Well,” Yitzhak replies, “she was here and you could have.”

Joshua worked for “Levine’s Tailors” and was a successful salesman. He was always polite to his customers and as a result was nearly always able to sell a suit to anyone who walked into the shop. So it was a surprise when, after 10 successful years, he resigned to join the police force.
His father couldn’t understand why his son should give up a good job to become a policeman. So at the end of Joshua’s first week, he rang Joshua to ask how he liked his new job.
“Well dad,” Joshua replied, “It’s nice of you to ask. The salary is just about OK, the hours arent as bad as I thought they would be and my colleagues are a great bunch. But what I like best is that the customer is always wrong.”

Moshe loses his rare and valuable dog and advertises in the Jewish Chronicle offering a very generous $15,000 reward for its return. After a few days of no replies, he goes to the JC for some information. He says to the receptionist, “Id like to see Jacob, the advertising manager, please.”
“I’m sorry sir, but hes out,” says the receptionist.
“OK, so how about his secretary?”
“Shes out too, sir. In fact everyone from his department is out.”
“Oy veh,” says Moshe, “where is everybody?”
“Theyre all out looking for your dog.”
