    An elderly Italian Jew wanted to unburden his guilty
    conscience by talking
    to his Rabbi. "Rabbi, during World War II, when the
    Germans entered Italy, I
    pretended to be a Catholic and changed my name from
    Levy to Spumoni, and
    I am alive today because of it."

    "Self-preservation is allowable, and the fact that
    you never forgot that
    you were a Jew is admirable," said the Rabbi.

    "Rabbi, during the war, a beautiful Jewish woman
    knocked on my door and
    asked me to hide her from the Germans.
    I hid her in my attic, and they
    never found her."

    "That was a wonderful thing you did, and you have no
    need to feel guilty."

    "It's worse, Rabbi. I was weak and told her she must
    repay me with sexual
    favors, which she did, repeatedly."

    "You were both in great danger and would have
    suffered terribly if the
    Germans had found her. There is a favorable balance
    between good and
    evil, and you will be judged kindly. Give up your
    feelings of guilt."

    "Thank you, Rabbi. That's a great load off my mind.
    But I have one more question."

    "And what is that?"

    "Should I tell her the war is over?"
