gift for mama
Four Jewish brothers left home for college, and
they became successful
doctors and lawyers and prospered. Some years later,
they chatted after having dinner together. They
discussed the gifts
that they were able to give to their elderly mother who
lived far away
in another city.
The first said, "I had a big house built for
The second said, "I had a hundred thousand
dollar theatre built in
The third said, "I had my Mercedes dealer
deliver her an SL600 with
The fourth said, "Listen to this. You know
how Mama loved reading
the Torah and you know she can't read it anymore because
she can't see very well. I met this Rabbi who told
me about a parrot
that can recite the entire Torah. It took twenty rabbis
12 years to teach him. I had to pledge to
contribute $100,000 a year
for twenty years to the temple, but it was worth it. Mama
just has to name the chapter and verse and the
parrot will recite
it." The other brothers were impressed.
After the holidays Mom sent out her Thank You
notes. She wrote: "Milton,
the house you built is so huge. I live in only one
room, but I have
to clean the whole house. Thanks anyway."
"Marvin, I am too old to travel. I stay home,
I have my groceries
delivered, so I never use the Mercedes...and the
driver you hired
is a Nazi. The thought was good. Thanks."
"Menachim, you give me an expensive theatre
with Dolby sound, it could
hold 50 people, but all my friends are dead, I've lost my
hearing and I'm nearly blind. I'll never use it.
Thank you for the
gesture just the same."
"Dearest Melvin, you were the only son to
have the good sense to give
a little thought to your gift. The chicken was delicious.
