The Frummest Chess Player in the World

December 15, 2011 | by Aish.com

Abe meets his friend Moishe on the train one morning. "Hello Moishe," he says, "where are you off to so early?"

"I'm on my way to visit my zaydeh," replies Moishe. "We're going to play chess."

"Didn't you once tell me that your zaydeh was a good chess player?" asks Abe.

"Yes," replies Moishe, "and he still is."

"And isn't your zaydeh also very frum?" asks Abe.

"He sure is," replies Moishe. "In fact our family calls him the frumest chess player in the world."

"Why do you call him that?" asks Abe.

"Because he uses a special chess set he had made up to his own specification - a chess set where all the bishops have been replaced by rabbis."
