The author, Jerry Markison, will start you off with one or two that are not in the book:
Getting a Second Opinion
A rabbi of great erudition
Once candidly made this admission:
“When asked for a view,
I like to give two
That conflict - it’s an age-old tradition!”
December saw Dov apprehensive.
His family was somewhat extensive -
Twelve girls and ten boys,
Wanting gelt and/or toys,
Which made Hanukkah pretty expensive!
The tour-guide said, “Here, to your right
Lies the Orthodox burial site.
The Reform go to rest
A mile to the West -
So at least once they’re dead, they won’t fight!”
Bitten by the Bug
An atheist, Marc, from Geneva
Came down with a curious fever:
He’s turned very kosher
And calls himself “Moshe”
(He contracted it while at Yeshiva.)
