Speak with a Hat Expert
Se Habla Español
Cohen showed up at synagogue one Saturday and the rabbi almost fell down when he saw him. Cohen had never been seen in a synagogue in his life. After Services, the rabbi caught Cohen and said "Mr. Cohen, I am so glad you decided to come here. What made you come?" Cohen said, "I got to be honest with you, Rabbi, a while back, I misplaced my favorite hat and I really, really love that hat. I know that Levy had one just like mine and I knew that Levi came to Services every Saturday. I also knew that Levy takes off his hat during Services and he leaves it in the back of the sanctuary. So, I was going to leave after the SHMAH and steal Levi's hat." The rabbi said, "Well, Cohen, I notice that you didn't steal Levy's hat. What changed your mind?" Cohen said "Well,after I heard your sermon on the 10 commandments, I decided that I didn't need to steal Levy's hat." The rabbi gave Cohen a big smile and said "After I talked about Thou Shalt Not Steal' you decided you would rather do without your hat than burn in Hell, right?" Cohen shook his head and said "No, Rabbi, after you talked about 'Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery' I remembered where I left it."
