It’s Your Affair! 2016/2017

A tourist in a strange town notices that her wristwatch is broken. She starts looking for a repair shop. After a long and frustrating search she finds herself in an area where many shop signs are in Hebrew. Finally, she notices that one of the stores has all kinds of clocks and wristwatches displayed merrily in the window. She walks into the shop and puts her wristwatch on the counter in front of the proprietor. "Would you please fix my wristwatch?� she asked. "Madam, I do not repair clocks or wristwatches. I am a Mohel, I perform circumcisions." Puzzled, she asks, "Then why on earth do you have all these clocks and wristwatches in your window?" "Well, what should I have in my window?"

An old Jew and a young Jew are traveling on the train. The young Jew asks: "Excuse me, what time is it?" The old Jew does not answer. "Excuse me, sir, what time is it?" The old Jew keeps silent. "Sir, I'm asking you what time is it. Why don't you answer?!" The old Jew says, "Son, the next stop is the last on this route. I don't know you, so you must be a stranger. If I answer you now, I'll have to invite you to my home. You're handsome, and I have a beautiful daughter. You will both fall in love and you will wantto get married. Tell me, why would I need a son-in-law who can't even afford a watch?"

The newly married wife says proudly to her husband after cooking their first meal together : “ Darling , the two things I cook best are meat loaf and apple pie” Husband; “ Which is this?”

My grandma believed we should all stay in shape. As soon as she reached 60, she started walking four miles every day. She’s 75 now and we have no idea where she is.
