Jewish Humour

Jewish Humour

Friday, September 25, 2015


An observant Jew who lived on Park Avenue, built  a   Sukkah on his balcony  

Some   of his 'high society' non-Jewish neighbours brought him to court.
They   claimed that the Sukkah on his balcony was an eyesore and was having a negative impact on the value of their homes in this posh neighbourhood.
In   court, the man was very worried about the outcome.  It was the eve of the eight-day holiday, leaving him no time to make  alternative arrangements, in case  the judge ordered him to  take down the Sukkah.
 He   prayed for help. And Hashem listened.
Judge   Ginsburg, who was Jewish himself, had a reputation of being a very wise man. After hearing both sides, he turned around to the observant Jew and scolded him: "Don't you realize that you live on Park Avenue, and not in Brooklyn? There is a certain decorum which is expected on Park Avenue.  You have no right to be putting up an ugly hut on  this lovely  street without a building  permit  authorizing  it. I hereby rule that either you remove the hut, or I  will fine you one thousand  dollars.
You have exactly eight days to  do so! Next case!" ( Good Yomtov…).
