Meir Kalmanson (aka Meir Kay) has been having a lot of fun pulling pranks wherever he goes.
So far we've shared his shtick, high fiving strangers in New York City and dancing behind unsuspecting people in Jerusalem.
Today we're sharing one of his comedy skits called How to Lift the Torah Like a Boss, a title that comes from a YouTube video called How to Lift a Barbell Like a Boss.
Meir has been given the honor of Hagbah (lifting the Torah) but just barely has the strength to accomplish the task. Determined to do better next time, he undertakes a regimen to prepare himself. When the opportunity occurs again, he may be just a bit overzealous. Fully expecting to receive the same honor, he doesn't notice that he was not asked to lift the Torah this time, but to have the third aliyah.
