              Jewish Quote du Jour

      "If there is any honor in all the world that I should
      like, it would be to be an honorary Jewish citizen."
      --A.L Rowse, authority on Shakespeare


      ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

      "Mezuzah!"
        
      Opening his front door, the Rabbi found himself 
      face to face with the local priest. "Rabbi, may I 
      have a few words with you?" asked the priest.
        
      "Of course, Father," replied the Rabbi somewhat 
      nervously.
        
      "Rabbi," began the priest, "It must be evident to 
      you that in this town we are plagued by thieves. 
      Scarcely a day passes without one of my flock 
      coming to me bemoaning the fact that his house 
      has been broken into.. On the other hand, I have 
      noticed that thieves do not bother you Jews nearly 
      as much."
       
      "Father, you are correct."
       
      "Yes, but why is that?" inquired the priest.
       
      "Look at this little box here on the side of my door 
      post," said the Rabbi. "It's called a mezuzah. We 
      Jews believe that when we put a mezuzah on the 
      entrances to our houses, the Holy One, may His Name 
      be blessed, protects both us and our property."
       
      "In that case", replied the priest, "I must have one!"
       
      Not wishing to be the cause of an incipient pogrom, 
      the Rabbi reluctantly handed over a mezuzah to the 
      priest.
       
      Some two weeks later the Rabbi was awakened by 
      the sound of someone pounding violently on his door. 
      Dressing himself hastily, he made his way down the 
      stairs. "Who's there?" the Rabbi asked tremulously.
       
      "Open the door! Open the door!" screamed a voice 
      on the other side. Leaving the door on the chain, the 
      Rabbi racked the door wide enough to see the priest 
      standing in front of him, his eyes wild with great 
      distraught.
       
      "What happened?" asked the terrified Rabbi. "Were you
      not protected from robbers?"
       
      "I was! But these people were worse than robbers!" 
      screamed the priest.
        
      "Who?" asked the rabbi.
        
      "Fund-raisers!!!"
