Jews of con­ve­nience

Dur­ing ba­sic train­ing, our drill sergeant asked all Jewish per­son­nel to make them­selves known. Six of us ten­ta­tively raised our hands. Much to our re­lief, we were given the day off for Rosh Hashanah. A few days later, in an­tic­i­pa­tion of Yom Kip­pur, the sergeant again asked for all Jewish per­son­nel to iden­tify them­selves. This time, ev­ery sol­dier raised his hand. “Only those who were Jewish last week can be Jewish this week,” de­clared the sergeant.
