Jewish Holiday

A Jewish girl tells her Catholic college roommate that she’s going home for Roshashanna.

“Oh,” the Catholic girl says. “That’s the holiday when you light the eight candles, right?”

“No,” the Jewish girl replies. “That’s Hannukah.”


“Oh, right,” the Catholic girl says. “Roshashanna is the holiday when you eat the unlevened bread?”

“No,” the Jewish girl replies. “That’s Passover. Roshashanna is the holiday when we blow the shofar.”

“See,” the Catholic girl says. “That’s what I like about you Jews…you’re so good to the help.”
