The Right Combination

The substitute teacher at King David high school was struggling to open a combination lock on the supply cabinet. She had been told the combination, but couldn't quite remember it.

Finally she went to the rabbi’s office and asked for help. The rabbi came into the room and began to turn the dial.

After the first two numbers he paused and stared blankly for a moment.

Finally he looked serenely heavenward and his lips moved silently.

Then he looked back at the lock, and quickly turned to the final number, and opened the lock.

The teacher was amazed. "I'm in awe at your faith, rabbi," she said.

"It's really nothing," he answered. "The number is on a piece of tape on the ceiling."
