LETTER OF REFERENCE

There's a story about a Jewish man;

* Who applied to work for First International Bank of Israel;

* That bank asked for a letter of recommendation;

* And the young Jewish man put down his Rabbi to be the reference.

* The Rabbi wrote, 'His father came from the distinguished 'Goldburg' family;

* His mother was from the respected 'Abraham's'.

* Further back there was a happy blend of 'Rosengurg's, Stienburg's & Levenburg's",

* In other words this young man is from good Jewish stock.

* Several days later the First International Bank of Israel,

* Sent a note to the Rabbi saying:

* The information supplied was altogether inadequate. It continued:

* "We are not contemplating using the young man for breeding purposes. Just for work."
