A Rabbi and a Priest

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.”

Insensitivity

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.
