It seems a rabbi and a cantor were in the synagogue one evening rehearsing a service. To dramatically make his point the rabbi fell to his knees, beat his breast and said, “I am nothing. I am nothing!” Then the cantor fell to his knees, beat upon his breast and repeated “I am nothing. I am nothing!” Meanwhile, the janitor has come in the door at the back of the synagogue and has watched the men going through their motions at the front. Moved by what he has seen and heard the janitor falls to his knees and says, “I am nothing. I am nothing!” When the rabbi and the cantor hear the janitor, the rabbi turns to the cantor and says, “So look who has the gall to think he is nothing.”
