So Long, Farewell
Rabbi Epstein was ready for a new challenge, and soon enough he got a job in another city. The shul had a going away party for him at which everyone thanked him and his wife for their service.
As he was saying his final farewells, Ethel Goldenberg approached him and said "Rabbi Epstein, I know your successor won't be as good as you."
"Nonsense," said Rabbi Epstein, in a flattered tone.
"No, really," said the old lady, "I've been here under five different rabbis, and each new one has been worse than the last."
