At the Friday night service, Bernie turns up with a rottweiler in tow. The rabbi is outraged and says “Bernie, you can’t bring that dog in here, it’s completely inappropriate”. “Just wait,” says Bernie, and he produces a yarmulke and a tallith and puts them on the dog, who immediately starts reading beautifully from the prayer book. “That’s amazing,” says the rabbi, “I’m sorry I doubted you. Do you think he would be interested in attending rabbinical school?”. Bernie throws up his hands in disgust. “YOU try telling him”, he says, “he wants to be a doctor!”.
