Keeping the Faith

One time, once, when I was really young,
we had, uh-- Bella Abzug showed up
for a bris, but that was--

Well, I've heard so much about you,
I had to come and see for myself.

- The service was wonderful.
- Oh--

You were really, really wonderful.
Well, we're all certainly aware
of your successes.

You know, she just moved
to network prime time.

Ooh, look at that.
We got in a live feed.

- Well, my mom does all my PR.
- I know what you mean. Mine too.

No, I mean really.
My mother's firm does all my PR.

-Jake, I'm at PMK.
- Oh.

- We got her special correspondent.
- Great.

You know, she just got back
from interviewing Arafat.

- Yassir?
- In Arabic.

- That's great. I didn't know that.
-Jake, what you don't know is a lot.

You two should get together.
- Sure.
- I'm free on Thursday.

Thursday. That's--
That's fine-- That's great.

- Okay.
- Okay, great. Well,
nice to see you, Bonnie.

Rabbi. Wonderful.
- This is Hillary--
- Oh! This is-- This is the man
you were telling-- Right. Yes, sir.

Well, I appreciate what you did
for us in the war, I really do.

- How upset are they?
- Let's just say
they're less than thrilled.

-To be honest, we're less than thrilled.
-Okay, with what, specifically?

With what, specifically?
Well, with guided meditation,

With stand-up comedy sermons,

With your loose, improvisational style,

Okay, with people
actually enjoying services?
People-- People showing up at all?

To be serenaded by
the Harlem-freaking-Gospel Choir?

- At least they were praying.
- It was a hell of
an "Ein Keloheinu, " Lar.

- It's not kosher, Rabbi Lewis!
- Larry, what does that mean?

I have to tell you what kosher means?
Study your gemara!

I mean, is this you too?
Do you feel the same way?

It's not your ideas.
Your ideas are very good.

But sometimes you're a little aggressive
in the execution.

Yeah, but, Ben, come on!
I mean, I mean, it was working!

I know, I know, I know, I know.
- You like to shake things up,
and that's good.
- When it works, yeah.

But you have to appreciate the fact
that a lot of people come here
for a sense of continuity.
