This is one of those moments that would pass unnoticed were it not for the ubiquitous cell phone that can function as a camera.
Watch as a man tries to change the time on a wall clock without using a ladder in a mikveh (ritual bath) and loses his footing.
If it were staged it would be considered slapstick. We have to admit that we have no knowledge of who the rabbi is, and where the mikveh is. We can't guarantee that it wasn't staged, but it was posted on November 1, 2015, which happens to be the date when we moved our clocks back an hour to change from daylight time to standard time.
All we know is that it happened, and someone was there to capture the moment. We can only wonder, as the last frame of the video asks, is the clock now kosher?
