The Rites

An orthodox Jewish rabbi is walking by a Catholic church and sees the whole congregation going in. It’s not Sunday so he wonders what’s going on. He walks in & sits down right in front and with great interest watches the solemn ceremony going on.

After the ceremony is over & the congregation is filing out, the priest stops the rabbi and asks, “Rabbi what were you doing here during this ceremony? This is a very solemn Catholic rite where the young women are being inducted into the nunnery. The vows they take here are the vows that wed them to Christ. The people here are the families of these young initiates who are devoted to Christ. What right do you have to be here?"

“Well,” says the rabbi, “I’m from the groom’s side.”
