Jewish Humor

A good Chasidic family based in North London is most concerned that their 30-year-old son Paul is still unmarried. So, they call a shadchen and ask him to help find Paul a good wife.

The shadchen comes over to their house and spends a long time questioning Paul and his parents as to what they want in a wife and daughter-in-law. So they give him a long shopping list of requirements. The shadchen takes a long time reading and thinking, and finally asks to visit the family again.

6 weeks later, the shadchen returns to their house and tells them of a wonderful woman he has found. He says she’s just the right age for Paul. She keeps a Glatt Kosher home, she regularly attends shul, knows the prayers by heart, and she’s a wonderful cook. She also loves children and wants a large family. And to crown it all off, she’s gorgeous.

After hearing all this, the family is very impressed and begins to get excited about the prospects of a wedding in the near future. But Paul pauses and asks inappropriately: ‘Is she also good in bed?’

The shadchen replies, ‘Some say yes, some say no….’

Chasid: A member of an orthodox religious sect
