“The mind reels.” :)

After all the holidays, I thought I’d take a break and just post a few chuckles. Enjoy.

Found on Adam Ragil’s blog,, on Wednesday, September 1, 2004:

“Was chatting with an RN [religious neighbor, by which he means a neighborhood schtieble-goer, as opposed to a neighborhood Modern-Orthodox-synagogue-goer] recently about his background.

I grew up in a Young Israel, he said, but hurried to add, it was a frum Young Israel.

The mind reels. What is a non-frum Young Israel?”

An Orthodox employee of an organization for which I often do temp. work told me that she was pleased that some friends had gone to see a particularly rabbi to ask him for a blessing because “He gives a good brachah.”

The mind reels. There’s such a thing as a bad brachah?
