Joe emails: A reform jew is walking down the street and he looks in the window of the kosher deli. He does a double take as he is utterly shocked to see his reform synagogue’s pulpit rabbi eating lunch. He cannot believe that the rabbi would eat at such an establishment that kept to the anitquated rules of kashrut. He does not want to embarass the rabbi on the spot, but when he sees the rabbi in synagogue he confronts the rabbis and says “I saw you at that kosher deli, and I saw you eating there, i cannot believe it”, to which the rabbi responded, “I only had the fish!”
