  • The Hat

    Abe Cohen showed up at synagogue one Saturday and the rabbi almost fell down when he saw him. Cohen had never been seen in a synagogue in his life. After Services, the rabbi caught Cohen and said "Mr. Cohen, I am so glad you decided to come here. What made you come?"

    Cohen said, "I got to be honest with you, Rabbi, a while back, I misplaced my favorite hat and I really, really love that hat. I know that Levy had one just like mine and I knew that Levy came to Services every Saturday. I also knew that Levy takes off his hat during Services and he leaves it in the back of the sanctuary. So, I was going to leave after the Shmah prayer and steal Levy's hat."

    The rabbi said, "Well, Cohen, I notice that you didn't steal Levy's hat. What changed your mind?" Cohen said "Well, after I heard your sermon on the 10 commandments, I decided that I didn't need to steal Levy's hat after all."

    The rabbi gave Cohen a big smile and said "After I talked about Thou Shalt Not Steal' you decided you would rather do without your hat than burn in ****, right?"

    Cohen shook his head and said "No, Rabbi, when you talked about 'Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery' I remembered where I left my hat.
