Abe and Esther Stein are flying to Australia for a two week vacation to celebrate their 40th anniversary. Suddenly, over the public address system, the Captain announces,
"Ladies and Gentlemen, I am afraid I have some very bad news. Our engines have ceased functioning and we will attempt an emergency landing. Luckily, I see an uncharted island below us and we should be able to land on the beach. However, the odds are that we may get stranded on this deserted island for a very long time."
Thanks to the skill of the flight crew, the plane lands safely on the island.
Once on the island, Abe turns to his wife and asks, "Esther, did we pay our charity pledge check to the Synagogue yet?"
"No, sweetheart," she responds.
Abe, still shaken from the crash landing, then asks, "Esther, did we pay our United Jewish Appeal pledge?"
"Oiy, no! I'm sorry. I forgot to send that check too," she says.
"One last ting, Esther. Did you remember to send the check for the Synagogue Building Fund," he asks?
"Oiy, forgive me, Abe," begged Esther. "I didn't send that one either."
Abe grabs her and gives her the biggest kiss he has given her in 40 years.
Esther pulls away and asks him, "What was that for?"
Abe answers, "We're Saved! They'll find us!"
