The special award

Maurice had worked most of his life helping his community and he was therefore thrilled one morning to hear that his unselfish work had been recognized by the Queen, no less.  She had decided to bestow on Maurice a knighthood.

But his elation soon turned to dismay when he realized that his ceremony would take place on the first night of Pesach.  "What on earth should I do", thought Maurice, "should I attend Seder night with my loving family or should I accept one of the highest honours in the land?  His family soon talked him into going to the Palace.  "The award is too special to turn down and you would always live to regret it", they told him.

His next worry was what to say to the Queen.  He just couldn't think of anything that would be of interest to her.  He just hoped that he would come up with something on the day.

Come the special day, there was Maurice, on his knees, being knighted, with the Queen touching his shoulders with her sword and Maurice shaking with excitement.  All of a sudden, he burst out with "Ma nishtona haleila hazeh".

The Queen looked at Prince Philip with a surprised expression on her face and said to him "Why is this knight different from all other knights?"
