What a Coincidence

David and Isaac found themselves sitting next to each other in a New York bar. After a while, David looks at Isaac and says, "I can't help but think from listening to you that you're from Israel."

Isaac responds proudly, "I am!"

David says, "So am I! And where might you be from?"

Isaac answers, "I'm from Jerusalem."

David responds, "So am I! And where did you live?"

Isaac says, "A lovely little area two miles east of King David's Hotel. Not too far from the old city"

David says, "Unbelievable! What school did you attend?"

Isaac answers, "Well, I attended Yeshiva University."

David gets really excited, and says, "And so did I. Tell me, what year did you graduate?"

Isaac answers, "I graduated in 1984."

David exclaims, "Amazing! This is bashert. God wanted us to meet! I can hardly believe our good luck at winding up in the same bar tonight. Can you believe it? I graduated from Yeshiva University in 1984 also."

About this time, Moishe enters the bar, sits down, and orders a drink. The bartender walks over to him shaking his head and mutters, "It's going to be a long night tonight, the Goldberg twins have had a few too many L’chaims again."
