Lies My Rebbe Told Me

What's this? A provocatively titled feature, here at the JewZoo? Actually, it's our way of introducing something new and exciting. We're compiling a list of Jewish urban legends, and we'd like you to join the fun. As the title of this article suggests, we're not looking for popular stories that non-Jews tell about Judaism, but for stories that Jews tell each other. To qualify as an urban legend, the story must be demonstratively false, or you must be able to cite at least one Jewish authority who didn't accept the story. To get the ball rolling I've posted two examples in the comment section. To play, hit the comment button and add your own.
