A Rabbi and a Priest were sitting together on a train, and the Rabbi leans over and asks, “So how high can you advance in your organization?”
The Priest says “If I am lucky, I guess I could become a Bishop.”
“Well, could you get any higher than that?” asks the Rabbi.
“I suppose that if my works are seen in a very good light that I might be made an Archbishop” said the Priest a bit cautiously.
“Is there any way that you might go higher than that?”
“If all the Saints should smile, I guess I could be made a Cardinal”
“Could you be anything higher than a Cardinal?” probed the Rabbi.
Hesitating a little bit, the Priest said “I suppose that I could be elected Pope, but…”
So the Rabbi says “And could you be anything higher than that? , is there any way to go up from being the Pope?”
“What!!! I should be the Messiah himself!?!”
The Rabbi leaned back and said “One of our boys made it.”
The Meenister’s Log
At a London luncheon, the Roman Catholic Cardinal Vaughan was sitting next the chief Rabbi of England, Rabbi Adler.
“Now, Dr Adler” said the Cardinal, “when may i have the pleasure of helping you to some ham?”
The Rabbi replied straightaway, “At your Eminence’s wedding”
Rabbi Hermann Adler CVO (30 May 1839 – 18 July 1911) was the Chief Rabbi of the British Empire from 1891 to 1911.
