Parshat Vayishlach, Genesis 32:4–36:43

The vicious anti-Semite walks into a bar and is about to order a drink when he sees a guy close by with a kippah. Realizing the fellow is Jewish, he shouts over to the bartender so everyone can hear, “Drinks for everyone in here, bartender, but not for that Jew over there.” Soon after the drinks have been handed out, he notices that the Jewish guy is smiling, waves to him and says, “Thank you.” This infuriates him and in a loud voice he once again orders drinks for everyone except the Jew. But as before, this does not seem to worry the Jewish guy, who continues to smile and again says, “Thank you.” So the guy says to the bartender, “What’s the matter with that Jew? I’ve ordered two rounds of drinks for everyone in the bar except him, and all he does is smile and thank me. Do you know who he is?” “Of course I know him,” replies the bartender. “He’s the owner.”
