Shlomo Eisenstein, an elderly gentleman was on his deathbed as his wife and three children and nurse stood close by.
Breathing with difficulty, he spoke:
“Chaim, you take the Beverly Hills houses.”
After a pause he said, “Rachel, you take the offices at the Mid-town Center.”
Taking another deep breath he croaked, “Sarah, the apartments over at the L.A. Plaza are yours.”
And with a last effort he whispered, “To my dear wife, take all the residential buildings near downtown.”
The nurse was really impressed. Visibly touched she said, “Your husband must have been quite a man, amassing so much property to leave to all of you.”
His wife Talia responded, “What property? That’s the schmuck’s newspaper route!”
