Taking a Stand in Life has its shortcomings!!

We must take a stand in life...but please be careful what you stand for..!!

There was this guy that once found himself in a Persian synagogue on a certain Saturday, and aside from being unable to follow the prayers in Hebrew, the announcements in Farsi were also completely foreign to him… The best he could do was to mimic what those around him were doing: They stood up, he stood up; they sat back down, he sat back down… At one point during the Torah-reading, the guy next to him stood up, so sure enough, he stood right up with him… The guy turned to him, grabbed him by the shoulders and pushed him back into his seat… The man was all confused and embarrassed… What happened there?...

He discovered afterwards, apparently there was a baby-naming ceremony going on and the announcement was: “Will the father of the baby please stand up?”
