The CEO of Empire Kosher Chicken was visiting the rabbi of a prominent synagogue. After talking for almost an hour, the CEO finally brought up the subject he came to ask the rabbi about.

“Rabbi,” he said, “I’m willing to give this synagogue 5 million dollars. But before I do, I must also request that the traditional blessing made over wine on the Sabbath be changed to a blessing over chicken.”

The rabbi was taken by surprised by this request. He told the CEO, “For thousands of years, we have been making the blessing over wine and now in one short moment – you want me to go against this age-old tradition? I don’t think I can do this.”

The CEO was undaunted. “Rabbi,” he said, “you drive a hard bargain. Allright, I will give you 10 million dollars to do this, but not a penny more.”

The rabbi looked at the CEO and, after several moments, replied, “I will have to get back to you on that.”

The CEO left and the rabbi promptly called a meeting of the board of directors of the synagogue. After all the members arrived, the rabbi stood up to speak. “Gentlemen, I have some good news and I have some bad news.”

The board knew something big was up. The rabbi always began this way when a major task was being undertaken. The rabbi continued. “We have just come into 10 million dollars!”

The board gasped at the figure. The excitement was growing. The rabbi continued.

“That’s the good news. The bad news is – we just lost the Manischewitz account!”
