What do you like about Israeli food?

Dedicated in blessed memory of Richard Allen Julis who made us laugh and made us better Jews.
 

Two meshulachim (Jewish fundraisers) were knocking on doors in a Jewish neighborhood trying to raise funds for their institutions in Israel when they knocked on the door of a woman who was not happy to see them. She told the meshulachim in no uncertain terms that she did not want to give them any money and slammed the door in their faces.

To her surprise, however, the door did not close and, in fact, bounced back open. She tried again, really put her back into it, and slammed the door again with the same result – the door bounced back open.

Convinced these rude meshulachim were sticking their foot in the door, she reared back to give it a slam that would teach them a lesson, when one of them said: "Before you do that again you probably should move your cat."
