Yankel’s Not Jewish

He Has The Key

This joke is not just so Jewish, it’s so religiously Jewish, so don’t feel bad if you don’t get it!

Two friends, Shimon and Yankel, are longtime learning partners. One day…

Yankel: I’ve got a confession to make: I’m not Jewish. 

Shimon: What do you mean you’re not Jewish? We’ve been learning Torah together for years!

Yankel: I love the Torah and the commandments, I love the learning, but I’m not actually Jewish. 

Shimon: You keep Shabbos! A non-Jew can’t keep Shabbos.

Yankel: That’s why I keep a key in my pocket every Shabbos.

Shimon: Yankel, there’s an eruv in this neighborhood.

Yankel: I don’t hold by that eruv.
