The New Rabbi

The synagogue in Springfield, Illinois had hired a new, young Rabbi, only recently graduated. The congregation liked him except for this one problem: his sermons were too long.

One Friday night, at services, in the middle of his usual long, extended sermons, the congregation was startled to hear the Rabbi say: "It doesn't bother me much when now and then some of you look at your watches. But it bothers the heck out of me when I see you put your watches up to your ears to see if the things are still running!"
