The retired Mohel

When Rabbi Levy retired, the congregation decided to plant a tree on the shul grounds in commemoration of his years of service.



At the Board meeting, someone suggested an oak tree, because the rabbi grew the congregation from a little acorn. Someone else, a critic of the rabbi, suggested a locust, a reference to one of the plagues in Exodus. As the discussion became heated, the gabbai spoke up.



None of you mentioned the rabbis service as a mohel, he said, so why not plant an appropriate tree?



So what do you have in mind? the president asked.



Meyer pulled out a nursery catalog. Right here, a tree. A you-clipped-us.
