More Nobody Than Thou!

Once two rabbis were at the Synagogue together and one prayed aloud, "O Lord, I am nobody." The other rabbi, not be outdone, prayed a little louder, "O Lord, I am nobody." They prayed this way for awhile, getting louder and louder, until they finally settled into silence.

During this episode, the janitor had been on his hands and knees cleaning in one corner. In the silence the rabbis heard him quietly praying, "O Lord, I am nobody and You are All."

Then one rabbi elbowed the other and said, "Well, look who thinks he's nobody!"
