A Jewish girl brings her fiancÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â© home to meet her parents. After dinner, her mother tells her father to find out about the young man.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â He invites the fiancÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â© to his study for schnapps.“So what are your plans?” the father asks the fiancÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â©.
“I am a Torah scholar,” he replies.
“A Torah scholar,” the father says. “Admirable, but what will you do to provide a nice house for my daughter to live in, as she’s accustomed to?”
“I will study,” the young man replies, “and God will provide for us.”
And how will you buy her a beautiful engagement ring, such as she deserves?” asks the father.
“I will concentrate on my studies,” the young man replies, “God will provide for us.”
“And children?” asks the father. “How will you support children?”
“Don’t worry, sir, God will provide,” replies the fiancÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â©.
The conversation proceeds like this, and each time the father questions, the fiancÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â© insists that God will provide.
Later, the mother asks, “How did it go?”
The father answers, “He has no job and no plans, but the good news is he thinks I’m God.”
