Must be Reform
A "rabbi" not even wearing a kipah? Must be Reform. As were his disgusting remarks. So glad I've been there, done that, found Torah.

Missing the point
The Coen brothers' message, although not fully depicted by this scene, is actually quite beautiful and true. That is, to fully accept the uncertainty of the world. The film begins with a quote from Rashi,"Receive with simplicity everything that happens to you," which is supposed to be kept in mind as a catalog of social crimes is committed against the main character. After the credits they slip in the disclaimer, "No Jews were harmed in the making of this motion picture." I think all of our New Years resolutions could be to find the humor in life, even (if not especially), amidst the bleak the way the Coen brothers are able to accomplish.

Always focus on Hashem first!
I thought the young Rabbi was right in the fact that he was trying to get the attention off of the problem and turn his focus to Hashem, He is the only answer to any and every problem in our lives so why not go to Him first?

Waiting in the Parking Lot
How irrelevant can you get? Humorous to the viewer but sadly, warped. This is how the Cone brothers see man seeking help from a Rabbi. They see the strained logic and forced agenda of a one track mind of a young Rabbi, who sees very little of reality and forces a solution on a victimized person. Poor young Rabbi and poor troubled husband.
Funny, ridiculous, and sad.
