Conversion Conundrum

Every Wednesday morning four Jewish lawyers played golf, but one morning one player couldn't show up and they invited a gentile to play with them. Round after round the Jewish lawyers scored birdies and eagles while the gentile went way over par.

In despair, he asked what their secret was and the reply came back, "We worship at Beth Jacob every day, three times a day and thank God, we're scoring well."

Overwhelmed by his desire to become a championship golfer, the gentile takes a two year long conversion process and finally meets with the rabbinical court to make his conversion official.

Once again he found himself as the fourth man playing with the Jewish lawyers. While they scored birdies and eagles as usual, his score was no better than before. Upset, he told the lawyers that he had gone through a formal conversion and davens three times a day and his golf score was no better.

"So where do you daven," they asked?

"At Beth Am," he replied.

"That's your problem, Beth Am is the tennis shul."
