The Loving Husband

A elderly Jewish man and his ever-nagging wife went on vacation to Jerusalem in the Holy Land. While they were there the wife, suddenly, had a heart attack and passed away.

The husband contacted a local undertaker who told the husband, “You can have your wife shipped home for $5,000 or you can bury her here, in the Holy Land, for $500.”

The husband thought about it for a minute and told the undertaker that he would have the remains shipped home.

The undertaker asked, “Why would you choose to spend $5,000 to ship your wife home when it would be wonderful to have her buried here and you would spend only $500?”

The husband replied, “A long time ago a man died here, was buried here, and three days later he rose from the dead. I just can’t take that chance.”
