Warren Buffett and the Jewish Businessman

A Jewish businessman who had moved to Omaha complained to Warren Buffett, the great money manager, that he could not make many business contacts there. A key reason, he said, was that he was not allowed to join the Christian country club.

The people at the club told Buffett: There’s a country club for Jews, and that fellow should join that club. And the Jewish club doesn’t let Christians in.

Buffett applied for membership in the Jewish club. And although there were grumblings from a few Jews with goyishe kopfs, he was admitted.
