Yum. My favourite.
I just got sent this by email from in inimitable Tim Harkowitz. Others please feel free to add to Troppo’s stock of Jewish jokes in comments.
There is a very pious Jew named Goldberg who attends synagogue every Sabbath. Every Sabbath, he prays: God, I have been such a pious Jew all my life. What would be so bad if I won the lottery? But the lottery would come and Goldberg wouldnt win. Week after week, Goldberg would pray to win the lottery, but the lottery would come and Goldberg wouldnt win. Finally, one Sabbath, Goldberg wails to the heavens and says: God, I have been so pious for so long, what do I have to do to win the lottery?
And the heavens parted and the voice of God came down: Goldberg, give me a chance! Buy a ticket!
