Tell us your favorite joke.
A man enters the synagogue to pray alone in a dark corner. His head is bent with trouble. He speaks in a low, urgent voice. “Lord! My wife has run off with my business partner. My son and daughter refuse to speak to me. My stocks have crashed, and I have lost almost all my money. I’ve been infected with a painful, disfiguring skin disease. Yet I have always tried to obey the commandments and lead a good life. Why? Why is this happening to me?” There follows a profound silence. Then, from the direction of the ark in which the scrolls are stored, is heard a deep, rumbling voice. “Because … you bug me.”

Describe your level of ambition.
High: You wouldn’t be asking me these questions otherwise!
