A Joke to Start the Week - "Dry Cleaning a Tallit"

 
The rabbis and cantors of the Wilshire Boulevard Temple in Los Angeles have been adding a series of jokes to the videos on their website over the last few weeks. We're sure that their members join us in appreciating this welcome opportunity to share some laughs in the midst of the coronavirus stay-at-home world that most of us are experiencing.

One of America’s most highly respected congregations, Wilshire Boulevard Temple has been serving the Los Angeles Jewish community since its founding in 1862 as Congregation B’nai B'rith, the city’s first synagogue. Today, Wilshire Boulevard Temple carries out the mission through a variety of ways, as a center for Jewish spirituality and celebration, a place for lifelong learning and friendship and home to an engaged congregation where every person can make a difference.

Today Rabbi Beau Shapiro tells a joke about the cost of dry cleaning a tallit. 

Here's the setup: Abe spills a little bit of the kiddush wine on his tallit after the Shabbat morning service. He takes it to his dry cleaner, and he asks the dry cleaner "How much to get the stain out?" And then...

Enjoy!
