FUNNY THINGS

The Ink is Barely Dry

The ink on John Cantor’s printer began to grow faint, so he called Moishe’s Print Shop where a friendly employee informed him that the printer probably needed only to be cleaned. Because the store charged $50 for such cleanings, he told John he might be better off reading the printer's manual and trying the job himself.

Pleasantly surprised by his candor, John asked, "Does your boss Moishe know that you discourage business?"

"Actually, it's Moishe’s idea," the employee replied sheepishly. "We usually make more money on repairs if we let people try to fix things themselves first."

SHABBAT SHALOM 

I vividly recall how as a grade ten student at a Jewish Day School here in Johannesburg, our Jewish Studies Rabbi asked my class the following question.  “How many stages or steps are there in the Teshuva process?”  My hand shot up and I waited to be acknowledged by the Rabbi who was no doubt relieved that at least one of his students displayed such enthusiasm. That I was enthusiastic, was not at all hard for him to discern, I still remember how my hand reached high into the sky and I all but stood up while panting loudly, with an eager look on my face which could only mean, “I know! I really do know!”  There are four stages, I blurted out.  He looked at me curiously and gingerly asked for me to list them.  Well, the first stage is that one has to actually sin. His smile changed to a frown and he promptly kicked me out of the class. But tell me my friends, was I not right? How can one repent if one has not erred in any way? Knowingly or unknowingly. G-d in His wisdom gave us an Elul, a Rosh Hashana and a Yom Kippurim because we all make mistakes.  Every single one of us. Everyone that is, except for four who never sinned. Our sages tell who they were. King David’s father Yishai, his son Chilav, Moshe Rabeinu’s father Amram and Benjamin. Everyone else, and I mean everyone else besides these four, has something to repent for.  Sometimes it is for something significant, and sometimes it is for something miniscule, but it is always there.

Now here is the biggest paradox in our whole discussion on doing Teshuva.  Teshuva is simply recognizing what it is we have done wrong, regretting it if we can, and then desisting from ever doing it again.  Oh Yes!  If it was something between you and G-d, confess it and if between you and your fellow man, sort it out between you and them.  Now here is the paradox: - the worse you actually are is simply an indication of how good you could really be.  The further you fall, the higher you have the potential to climb. However no one ever told us just how great we can be. I saw in a sociology text book recently that 95% of us could not even identify a photograph of the back of our own hand if it would be mixed with photos of others. We are even worse off when it comes to knowing our spiritual potential.

The Gemara in Chagiga teaches us the story of Rabbi Elisha Ben Avuyah, known as Acher, “the other”. Once so great, and then so corrupt, that his previous Rabbinic colleagues could not even bring themselves to even mention his given name. One day in defiance of Jewish law he rode a horse on Shabbat.  Walking next to him was his long time student Rabbi Meir, who still maintained a relationship with his Rebbe.   Upon reaching the Sabbath boundary, the T’chum Shabbat, Acher said to him, “Go back you cannot go any further.  Rabbi Meir replied “You too go back Rebbe”, back to the ways of Torah in other words do teshuva. Acher replied to him in what must surely be one of the saddest episodes in all of the Talmud, I can’t for I have heard from Heaven itself that everyone else can return, except for Acher, except for me.  Even would I choose to return, and ultimately do teshuva, my repentance it seems, would not be acceptable.  I have gone too far.  How sad and what makes it even sadder it was simply not true. Rabbi J B Soloveitchik of blessed memory explained that everyone can do teshuva, everyone can surely repent. But the communication from heaven to Acher was so clear, everyone but you Acher. And that was true. Acher can’t repent but you see, you are not Acher. Acher does not exist. You are the great Rabbi Elisha ben Avuyah. Of course sincere repentance is acceptable to G-d. No matter whom you may have been then. How comforting!

The worse you were is just an indication of just how good you could really be, if only you would stop, regret and where appropriate confess to G-d or sort out your fellow man.

FUNNY THINGS HEARING IS BELIEVING

Old Morris Weisenstein had serious hearing problems for a number of years. He went to the doctor and the doctor was able to have him fitted for a set of hearing aids that allowed old Morris to hear 100%. Morris went back in a month to the doctor and the doctor said, "Mr. Weisenstein, your hearing is perfect. Your family must be really pleased that you can hear again."

To which Morris said, "Oh, I haven't told my family yet. I just sit around and listen to the conversations. I've changed my will three times!"

Havdalah: 6.29pm

SHABBAT SHALOM

If Rosh Hashana is the Day of Judgement and Yom Kippur, ten days later, is the Day of Atonement, it would seem that the order of the days is out of sequence. Surely forgiveness should be sought and would be preferable before the trial rather than being judged and only then pursuing some absolution for what one has done?

In truth, there are two different elements that we seek forgiveness for. The Gemara, our oral law, explains that while King David sinned twice, he was forgiven, while his predecessor King Saul sinned but once and was not. It seems a little unfair to say the least. However, our sages explain that in reality, King David’s sins were sins of passion. It was what he did that required him to redress his actions and seek pardon. With King Saul it was not so much what he did that was so bad. It was rather for who he was. It was not for his behaviour, but rather for his character.

It is way more difficult to sort out who we are than what we do. It is the who that we are that will determine at the end of the day what we do.

Rosh Hashana is the day we make G-d King. First our king and then hopefully the King of the Universe, to who we channel all we do. We go to the very roots of our being and allow Hashem to define our role in His world. Strange as it seems, we don’t mention sin or wrongdoing on Rosh Hashana at all. Our total focus on these days is on making our lives more G-d -centric. We implode our very foundations and place ourselves firmly in G-d’s hands.

We reengineer who we are.

On Yom Kippur on the other hand, we repent and here we do do Teshuva and make right all the wrongs we did or did not do, over the course of the past year, sin by sin.

We still have a little time to reflect on what we could do, what we should do, to emerge from these days, with a cleaner slate and a clearer vision.

Shana Tova Umetuka!

FUNNY THINGS CHAIM YANKEL AND THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

Chaim Yankel rented a small office on Wall Street and started advertising his investment services. He was having difficulty attracting new clients and he decided that the best way to bring attention to his business would be for him to appear in the newspaper. So he set his ights on the number one financial publication – the Wall Street Journal. He called their reporters, he emailed them. He even sent them packages to their homes. Everything he could think of.

One morning, Chaim Yankel was in the shower when the phone rang. His wife answered it and called out to him that the Wall Street Journal wanted to talk to him. Chaim Yankel was so excited that he dashed out of the shower wet, with shampoo still in his hair. Running downstairs to the phone, he tripped and fell down the stairs. Finally, wet, bruised and dirty, he crawled to the phone and breathlessly said, "Hello?"

The voice on the other end asked, "Is your name Chaim Yankel Lefkowitz?" "Yes," he replied.

The voice continued, "Mr. Lefkowitz, for just a dollar a day, we can give you a one-year subscription to the Wall Street Journal."

SHABBAT SHALOM 

THESE DAYS OF AWE

The Vilna Gaon, the preeminent Torah sage who lived in the 18th century taught that Mankind’s primary occupation in this world is to refine our characters. To take our natural predispositions and to work on them, on ourselves, to ensure that we become more than what we have in fact become.  This implies that YES!! Human beings can, with effort actually change and change for the better. We can change, fundamentally, in our mindsets, in our hearts and in our souls and not merely temporarily in our external behaviour.

That’s good news, I think! We all have within us a capacity to improve every aspect of who we ultimately are. We can reengineer ourselves for good. We are, my friends, but 3 weeks away from Rosh Hashana. Who will live and who will die, who will be rich and who will be poor, who will succeed and who will struggle? Health, wealth, and happiness. The stakes are humongous.

All Hashem asks of us is to veer a little in His direction, He will do the rest to make the connection strong and secure.

May I suggest that one good way of preparing for the Yemei Din, the days of Awe is to be religious about not speaking bad, neither about one another, nor to one another? The merit of this will go a long way to bring great merit to us as individuals, to our families and to our precious community.

May Hashem bless us all with the very best year ever.

Rabbi David Shaw
SAM LEVENSON'S ANSWER TO AN ANTI-SEMITE   "It's a free world; you don't have to like Jews, but if you don't, I suggest that you boycott certain Jewish products, like the Wasserman test for syphilis; digitalis, discovered by a Dr. Nuslin; insulin, discovered by Dr. Minofsky; chloral hydrate for convulsions, discovered by Dr. Lifreich; the Schick test for diphtheria; vitamins, discovered by Dr. Funk; streptomycin, discovered by Dr. Selman Abraham Waksman; the polio pill by Dr. A. Sabin and the polio vaccine by Dr. Jonas Salk.

"Go on, boycott! Humanitarian consistency requires that my people offer all these gifts to all people of the world. Fanatic consistency requires that all bigots accept syphilis, diabetes, convulsions, malnutrition, infantile paralysis and tuberculosis as a matter of principle.

"You want to be mad? Be mad! But I'm telling you, you ain't going to feel so good!"   FUNNY THINGS If it Walks Like a Duck

Morah Sarah, a kindergarten teacher, handed out a coloring page to her class. On it was a picture of a duck holding an umbrella.

Morah Sarah told her class to color the duck in yellow and the umbrella green. However, Moishie Applebaum, who always does things HIS way, colored the duck in a bright fire truck red.

After seeing this, Morah Sarah asked him: "Moishie, how many times have you seen a red duck?"

Little Moishie replied, "The same number of times I've seen a duck holding an umbrella."
