A Hebrew teacher stood in front of his class and said, "The Jewish people have observed their 5,759th year as a people. Consider that the Chinese, for example, have only observed their 4,692nd year as a people. "Now, what does it mean to you?"
After a moment of silence, a student raised his hand.
"Yes, David," the teacher said, "what does it mean?"
David replied,"It means that the Jews had to suffer without Chinese food for 1,067 years."
