A obstetrician was moving his office, and as he was cleaning out his file drawers, he found the box he used to keep the foreskins from all of his circumcision he had done. At his last count, he had 2000. Instead of tossing them, he decides to go to a leather worker and see what he could make with them. The worker asks him what they are, and the doctor says not to worry about it, just make him something, anything. Finally, the doctor tells him that they are foreskins, and the worker tells him to come back in a week. Well, a week passes and the OB goes back to the leather worker and he hands him a small wallet.
"What the hell is this? I give you 2000 foreskins, and all you made was a wallet?"
"Yeah," the leather worker said "but if you rub it, it turns into a suitcase!"

A man is out in the woods when he comes across a bear. Frightened for his life, he runs as fast as he can to escape the bear and hides in a cave. He is horrified to find that the bear has run after him into the cave, and now the man is trapped. He closes his eyes and begins to recite the "Sh'ma" in anticipation of his final moments. When he is finished, he opens his eyes and is surprised to see the bear in front of him with his eyes closed - also praying.
The man thinks to himself "how lucky am I to be cornered by what must
be the only Jewish bear! We're mishpocheh - I'm saved!"
And then he listens more carefully to the bear's prayer "...hamotzi
lechem min haaretz..."

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?"

"Yes, I did once succumb to temptation and indulge in sex."
"Better than pork, isn't it?"

cried. "I would have rushed up here, we could have gotten married, and the baby would have my name!"

bastard in the family than a lawyer!"

A man dies and leaves his son nine pairs of socks and a rooster. The man is confused as to what it means. He goes to the rabbi and asks if bequest has a hidden meaning.

for the night.
As they passed one hotel, one man says to the other, "Why
don't we try this one?"
The other says, "Are you crazy? It says on the
sign that this is a restricted hotel. You know what that means? It
means they don't let Jews in!"
To which the first man replies, "Restricted, reschmicted. Let's go in and have a little fun. Just let me do all the talking."

Man: (in thick Yiddish accent) We want a room!
Clerk: (Flustered. With a "Connecticut clench") I'm sorry, but this is a RESTRICTED hotel. We do NOT allow Jewish people to stay here.
Man: What makes you think I'm Jewish? I'm just as Christian as you are!
Come on, ask me a Christion question!
The clerk decides to amuse him.
Clerk: OK. OK. Where was Jesus born?
Man: Such a question! Everybody knows that Jesus was born in a stable.
Come on, ask me another Christian question!

What's a real dilemma for a Jewish American Princess?
It turns out that Heaven isn't above Hell, but rather, Heaven and Hell share the same plane and are separated only by a long wooden fence. One day, the Devil decides to throw this huge bash. Lots of bands perform with some of the biggest names, and the Damned start having a heck of a party. Toward the end of festivities, a big fireball fight breaks out and, sure enough, one lands on the fence and burns it down.
God complains to the Devil and insists that the Devil rebuild the fence. The Devil says, "Sure, no problem. I've got all the union leaders over here as well as most of the building contractors."
So, the fence is rebuilt but it's three feet to one side so that Hell has taken over three feet of Heaven. God is upset. "If you don't move that fence back," says God, "I'm gonna sue you."
"Yeah, right," says the Devil. "Where are you gonna get a lawyer?"

IF NOAH HAD TO BUILD HIS ARK TODAY
And the Lord spoke to Noah and said: "In six months I'm
going to make it rain until the whole earth is covered with water and all the evil people are destroyed. But I want to save a few good people, and two of every kind of living thing on the planet. I am ordering you to build Me an Ark." And in a flash of lightning he delivered the specifications for an Ark.
"OK," said Noah, trembling in fear and fumbling with the blueprints.
"Six months, and it starts to rain," thundered the Lord. "You'd better have my Ark completed, or learn how to swim for a very long time."
And six months passed. The skies began to cloud up and
rain began to fall. The Lord saw that Noah was sitting in his front yard, weeping. And there was no Ark.
"Noah," shouted the Lord, "where is my Ark?" A lightning
bolt crashed into the ground next to Noah.
"Lord, please forgive me!" begged Noah. "I did my best. But there were big problems. First, I had to get a building permit for the Ark construction project, and your plans didn't meet code. So I had to hire an engineer to redraw the plans. Then I got into a big fight over whether or not the Ark
needed a fire sprinkler system. My neighbors objected, claiming I was violating zoning by building the Ark in my front yard, so I had to get a variance from the city planning commission. Then I had a big problem getting enough wood for the Ark because there was a ban on cutting trees to save the Spotted Owl. I had to convince U.S.
Fish and Wildlife that I needed the wood to save the owls. But they wouldn't let me catch any owls. So no owls. Then the carpenters formed a union and went out on strike. I had to negotiate a settlement with the National Labor Relations Board before anyone would pick up a saw or a hammer. Now we have 16 carpenters going on the boat, and still no owls. Then I started gathering up animals, and got sued by an animal rights group. They objected to me taking only two of each kind. Just when I got the suit dismissed, EPA notified me that I couldn't complete the Ark without filing an environmental impact statement on your proposed flood. They didn't take kindly to the idea that they had no jurisdiction over the conduct of a Supreme Being. Then the Army Corps of Engineers wanted a map of the
proposed new flood plain. I sent them a globe. Right now I'm still trying to resolve a complaint from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission over how many Croatians I'm supposed to hire, the
IRS has seized all my assets claiming I'm trying to avoid paying taxes by
leaving the country, and I just got a notice from the state about owing some kind of use tax. I really don't think I can finish your Ark for at least another five years," Noah wailed.
The sky began to clear. The sun began to shine. A
rainbow arched across the sky.
Noah looked up and smiled. "You mean you're not going to destroy the earth?" Noah asked, hopefully.
"No," said the Lord sadly, "Government already has."

While worrying she decides to buy and send him two warm flannel shirts. A couple of months later he travels back to New York and sees his mother. After many hours on a bus he arrives at her door

A girl asks her boyfriend to come over Friday night to meet her parents and have dinner with them. Since this is such a big event, the girl announces that after dinner, she would like to go out and have sex for the first time. Well, the boy is ecstatic, but he has never had sex before, so he takes a trip to the pharmacist to get some condoms.
The pharmacist helps the boy for about an hour. He tells the boy everything there is to know about condoms and sex. At the register, the pharmacist asks the boy how many condoms he'd like to buy, a 3-pack, or a 6-pack. The boy, however, insists on the 10-pack because he thinks he will be rather busy, it being his first time and all.
That night, the boy shows up at the girls parents house and meets his girlfriend at the door.
"Oh I'm so excited for you to meet my parents, come on in!"
The boy goes inside and is taken to the dinner table where the girl's parents are seated. The boy quickly bows his head as if deep in a grateful prayer for the bounty before him.
A minute passes, and the boy is still deep in prayer, with his head down. Ten minutes pass, and still no movement from the boy.
Finally, after 20 minutes with his head down, the girlfriend finally leans over and whispers to the boyfriend, "I had no idea you were this religious."
The boy turns, and whispers back, "I had no idea your father was a pharmacist!"
