You don’t want to become a rabbi

A boy decided that he wanted to become a rabbi when he grew up, so his father suggested that he go to speak to their shul rabbi to find out what the job entailed.

“Ask me any question about the rabbinate and I’ll give you the answer,” declared the rabbi when the boy went to meet him.

“Well, besides giving a sermon for about fifteen minutes on Shabbat morning, what else do you do all week?” the boy asked.

“You don’t want to become a rabbi,” thundered the rabbi. With questions like that you want to become the shul president!”
