Tuesday, May 19


Bella was the only Jewess in her class at an exclusive school in Scarsdale. Quite rightly, she considered herself a lucky girl since, in those days, only gentiles were admitted. 
Bella's closest friend was Cynthia, a Greek Catholic. When the girls took their final examinations, Bella passed with straight A's but Cynthia failed miserably. 
"I just can't understand it," complained Cynthia. "Just before the tests I lit candles to St. Peter, St. Barnabas and several other saints, and look what happened!" 
"I lit a candle too," said Bella. 
"What! You, a Jewess, lit a candle? To whom?" 
"To nobody. I lit the candle and stayed up all night, studying."
