Jewish Holidays

A Jewish girl explained to her Catholic college roommate that she would need to go home for Rosh Hashanah in late September.

The Catholic girl asked, “Is this the holiday when you light the candles?”

“No,” the Jewish girl replied, “That’s Hanukkah.”

“Is that when you eat unleavened bread?” the Catholic girl inquired.

“No,” the Jewish girl corrected, “That’s Passover. Rosh Hashanah is the holiday where we blow the shofar.”

“That’s what I like about you Jewish people,” remarked the Catholic girl. “You’re so good to your hired help.”
