‘Bamidbar’ excerpts

Shabbat Shalom

And the Jews are counted. Number over 600,000, the ones who are to serve in the legions. This shule can’t even get 5 to sponsor a kiddush…It is pathetic.

You ask why the rabbi doesn’t donate. That has to do with the fact that your rabbi is a Levi, and thus exempt from doing any labor…And you dare to ask the rabbi to go out and try get new members…You dare to…

However, when it comes to Holy Service, that is for the Leviim. Putting up and taking down the Mishkan. That is for the Leviim alone. That is their service.
(1:51) ‘And the foreigh (non-Levi) that comes near’ to the putting up or taking down of the Mishkan ‘shall die.’
The Gabbai of this shule is not a Levite…
We all have services that we should be doing. There are times and places for all of us. The Gabbai…Out of a congregation of 250 families, you cannot tell me that nobody can be of service…

Now we still have the burnt door at the entrance to the synagogue which we have to fix. After investigation, it is clear that it was not an act of anti-semitism. It was the aftermath of Lag BOmer. The Max children thought it would be a good idea to burn the synagogue door, as it is made out of wood…They are not willing to volunteer to…We have questioned the Max family as self-hating Jews…

***These are excerpts from the sermon. For the sermon in its entirety, come see David Kilimnick perform at the Off The Wall Comedy Basement, in downtown Jerusalem.
David also tours as a Maggid with very few stories, if you invite him.
Shabbat Shalom
