Charity Begins at Home?

A man went fundraising to a wealthy Jewish philanthropist.

As he spoke to the philanthropist his voice breaking with emotion, “'I'd like to draw your attention to the terrible plight of a poor family in this neighborhood. The father is dead, the mother is too sick to work, and the nine children are starving. They are about to be turned out into the cold streets unless someone pays their $1000 in outstanding rent.”

'Terrible!” exclaimed the philanthropist. “May I ask who you are?”

The man wiped his eyes with his handkerchief and sobbed, “I'm their landlord.”
