Men’s Club Humor by Arnold Miller
MEN’S CLUB HUMOR by Arnold Miller
City-bred Mr. Mandel recently moved to a small town in the South to retire. One afternoon he is relaxing on his porch when he sees a cloud of dust up the road. The cloud is getting closer, so he arises from his lounge chair to investigate. He recognizes his neighbor, a farmer, driving a wagon.
“Good afternoon,” says Mr. Mandel with a friendly smile.
“Afternoon,” says the farmer.
“What do you have in the wagon” Mr. Mandel politely asks.
“Manure” replies the farmer.
“Really” says Mr. Mandel in amazement. He had never seen such a sight before. “Pardon my curiosity, but what do you do with the manure?”
“Spread it over the fruit” answers the farmer.
“Well,” says Mr. Mandel. “I have a suggestion. I know you are not Jewish but why don’t you come to my house on Saturday afternoon for Shabbos lunch. I also eat fruit but I cover my fruit with sour cream.”

Create a Booklet for Your Family
This is the response to an autobiographical booklet called “Experience is the Best Teacher”. The booklet was written by member, Rudy Schindler and is now in the library of the Temple.
Thank you for thinking of me on my birthday this year and every year. I also want to thank you for writing me your book about your life and your wisdom. I have gotten through most of it and I would love to talk to you about it when I see you on Thanksgiving. Also I will write you when I finish reading it to tell you what I think and ask you any questions I might have. I love reading about our family’s history. It makes me feel more connected to my roots. And reading about you being a young man has given me a good perspective on my life.
I love you, see you soon,
You may want to create a booklet of your own for your family and get the same kind of response from your grandchildren.
Men’s Club is planning to offer any member this opportunity. Paul Feigenbaum has come up with an unusually low cost for any member inclined. You may contact Paul Feigenbaum at 206-1666 for more details.
Our Daily Minyan
Perhaps the one activity at Temple Judea that never takes a vacation is the Minyan. Twice a week, the faithful gather in Smotrich Chapel to maintain the century-old tradition of public worship. More often than not, the core group is joined by those who, in grief, come to praise the Almighty by means of the Mourners Kaddish. Please consider joining us for morning services. Monday and Thursday at 8:30am.
Donate Your Old Car
As most of you know, the sale of cars donated to Temple Judea has been the source of much needed income to our Temple. I put out a request for help in this project and lo an behold, a member of our Men’s Club, Norman Kingston has volunteered to aid me in this endeavor. Thank you Norman! Norman can be reached either through the Temple office or at his home number 679-2216.
Gold for Temple Judea
Men’s Club will cash in your gold for the Temple and we’ll save you the effort to do so. Call Jack Berger 949.829.8270 to arrange it. A little or a lot – broken or not, it sure will help. Please look around in drawers or closets and cash it in for Temple Judea.
