Bar Mitzvah
There was a young man who was known for his lack of religious study. The rabbi of the congregation, was not about to let this go unnoticed.
The boy performed his Bar Mitzvah, and rose to the occasion as best he could, with the minimal preparation.

When it came time to hand out the gifts, to the young man, he received the usual Kiddush Cup, and Bible, from the congregation. But then the Rabbi, added a special gift.

He said, "You have received many gifts today, many treasures of Judaism in book form, that will enrich your life, and make it, holy, in the eyes of G-d and now for my own special gift to you"!

With that he pulled out an Umbrella, from behind the lectern, and told the boy, who had become a man, in the previous half hour, "I present you this umbrella, because, I want to give you a gift that at least I know you will open!"
