vonzinzer hah

Oy!

All right, just for that ...

In 1851 Moses Montefiore was knighted by the Queen of England -- the first Jewish knight in history. During the knighthood ceremony, Queen Victoria tapped him on his shoulder with the flat of her sword, and in response he was supposed to say a phrase in Latin -- "Regina, te fidem meam perpetuam spondeo" -- to swear his eternal loyalty to the Queen.

But in his excitement he forgot the words! The only thing that popped into his mind was a phrase he learned in childhood: “Mah nishtanah, ha-laylah ha-zeh, mi-kal ha-leylot ..."

Queen Victoria stared at him in puzzlement, then looked around the room and asked ...

“Why is this knight different from all other knights?”
