Laugh a little

We all receive jokes by email, but I've found a very large collection of Jewish jokes at a website called aWordInYourEye.com.  That website's creator, David Minkoff, has given permission for jokes on his website to be reproduced here.

Some suggestions for 'breads of affliction'

Jews traditionally go to the sea or a river or a lake or a similar mass of water on Rosh Hashana. They do this not only to pray, but also to throw bread crumbs into the water. Symbolically, this is to allow fish to devour their sins. This ceremony is called tashlich.


The following are some suggestions for the types of bread most appropriate for specific sins and misbehaviours. The sins are listed alphabetically.

Auto theft..............................Caraway
Bad tempered.....................Sourdough
Chutzpah..............................Fresh bread
Complex...............................Multigrain
Dark thoughts......................Pumpernickel
Dressing up immodestly..Tarts
Drugs usage.......................Poppy seed

Egotism................................Puff pastry

Flattery..................................Brownies
(being) Holier than thou....Bagels
Indecision............................Waffles
