Shabbat Shalom and Good Luck On The Jackpot

The Mega Millions jackpot is up to an astonishing $1,600,000,000!

This is the largest lottery in U.S. history, where instantly you become one of the richest people in the world.

At the kiddush after shul today, it didn’t take long for the conversation to hit on the upcoming lottery drawing.

Everyone asking each other around the table:

“Oh, what if you won, what would you do with all that money?”

“OMG, everyone would come out the woodwork to be your long lost relative and best friend.”

“Imagine all the charity letters you’ll get in the mail once this becomes public!” ”

You can certainly do a lot of good with that money”

“But can you keep in quiet and tell the lottery not to release your name?”

“Oh, I will quit my job in a split second!”

“What, you won’t be like all the other lottery winners that get up and say that they’ll keep coming back to their jobs and working just as hard as ever, and then they realize how much they actually won and quit the next day.”

“Oh, I would volunteer a lot.”

“Yeah right! You’d be spending so much time figuring out how not to lose it all!”

“If you win, will you split it with me?”

“No, but I’ll definitely sponsor the kiddush next week–kosher Chinese for everyone!”

“If I’m not here next week, you know why.”

“Ok, Shabbat Shalom, and good luck on the jackpot!”
