It is agreed by all that the most hotly contested disagreement in shuls across the world is its temperature. For some it is always too hot, others too cold, and the poor Gabbai is always caught in the middle. This Gabbai just gave up trying to please anyone, I wonder how that worked out……..
“Am I cold? Am I Hot?
There has never been born a Gabbai that knows
how to set a thermostat that is good for everyone.
Everyone should do as they as they wish.
If you are Hot, sit next to the air conditioner.
If you are cold, bring a sweater.”
