Synagogue Humor

A little girl became restless as the rabbi’s High Holy Day appeal sermon dragged on and on. Finally, she leaned over to her mother and whispered, “Mummy, if we give him the money now, will he let us go?”

After the circumcising of his baby brother in shul, little Jonah sobbed all the way home in the back seat of the car. His father asked him three times what was wrong.
Finally, the boy replied, “That rabbi said he wanted us brought up in a Jewish home, and I want to stay with you and Mummy, Daddy!”

The Religious School Teacher asks, “Now, Sammy, tell me frankly, do you say prayers before eating?” “No sir,” little Sammy replies, “I don’t have to. My Mum is a good cook.”

After a Shabbat service at the Shul in Finchley, a mother with a fidgety seven-year old boy, told me how she finally got her son to sit still and be quiet. About halfway through the sermon, she leaned over and whispered, ”If you don’t be quiet, Rabbi Cohen is going to lose his place and will have to start his sermon all over again!” It worked.”
