High Holiday Thief
Murray, a deeply religious man, went to temple one Sabbath and forgot
his Tallit, so he borrowed one from "the rack" at the temple. At the
end of the service, he realized that he really liked this Tallit (so much
that he actually decided to stuff it down the front of his trousers and
take it home).
After the service when he was walking thru the reception line, the
Rabbi stopped him and whispered, "Murray, I am sorry, but I saw you
stuff a Tallit down your pants. Why would you do this?" Murray, totally
embarrassed and ashamed, explained the situation, whereupon the
Rabbi suggested he remove it from his trousers and give it back.
By now, the Tallit had managed to slide half-way down his leg. While
Murray was bent over pulling the it out of his pant leg, he accidentally
let out a loud fart.
The Rabbi, exasperated, said, "Murray!... You took the Shofar, too?!?"
