It's A Miracle!

A certain tzaddik of Lithuania, a chassidic rabbi with a wide reputation as a wonder-worker, was in his study when the door burst open and the shammes rushed in, his eyes alight with holy fervor. "Rabbi! Rabbi!" he shouted, wildly excited. "A terribly crippled man just came into the synagogue. The moment he approached the bimah and laid his hand on the Torah he threw his crutches away! I myself saw the whole thing!"

The rabbi jumped up from his chair and raised his arms heavenward. "It is indeed a miracle from Heaven!" he cried, his face aglow with spiritual rapture. "Tell me quickly, where is the man now?"

"He's lying in the aisle," answered the shammes. "The poor man fell on his tuchus!"
