Heavenly Travel

July 23, 2009 | by Aish.com

NASA had sent many shuttles into space to orbit the earth and made an attempt to include passengers of all races and creeds. They suddenly realized that they had excluded the clergy, so they invited a priest, a rabbi and a minister to orbit the earth in a shuttle.

Upon their return, crowds of people formed to hear their impressions.

First the priest emerged, beaming and happy, his statement full of joy. He said, "It was totally amazing, I saw the sun rise and set, I saw the seas. It was beautiful."

Then the minister came out, also happy and seemingly at peace. He said, "I saw the magnificent earth, our home, I saw the majestic sun. I'm truly in awe."

Then the rabbi appeared. He was completely disheveled, his beard tangled flowing in every direction, his kippah was frayed, his tallit was wrinkled, like you can't imagine. They asked him, "Rabbi, did you enjoy the flight?"

He threw his hands up in the air crazily and replied, "ENJOY??? What was to enjoy?? Every five minutes the sun was rising and setting! On with the tefillin, off with tefillin, shachris, mincha, ma'ariv, shacris, mincha, ma'ariv!... GEVALT!!!!"
