Hey, hey,

where are you going?

My brother told me he married a smart

girl, he married a pretty girl...

but he never told me

he married such a chicken.

Be proud, Sonia. This is the moment

your son becomes a Jew.

- Bring up the boy, please.

- No, wait.

Is okay? You checked?

Is sharp, no nicks or anything?

- You checked?

- Trust me.

Okay, double check. Check again

to make sure everything's okay.

Oh, is hot.

Is like an oven in here.

I don't want my son

cooking in this oven.

Can somebody open a window, please?

You've been coming to this shul

for 23 years. When was the last

time you saw an open window?

- What kind of building for people

doesn't have an open window?

- When was the last time?

Sonia, come on.

Come on.


Don't you drop him.


Don't any one of you

dare drop him.

Nice girl you married.

How about the doors?

Maybe somebody could open the door.

Maybe we could get a draft.

Baruch, maybe you could get us a draft.

- A draft of what?

- Air, Baruch! So my son

doesn't choke to death in this.

I'm looking forward

to knowing her better now that

we're going to be neighbors.

I talked to Reb Fedder. You got the job

teaching at the yeshiva in Boro Park.

I already found you an apartment on 45th

Street. Is a stone's throw from by me.

And the Rebbe?

I'm going to be close to the Rebbe?

Three blocks from the Rebbe's house.

Thas where you're gonna be.

You'll pray with the Rebbe, you'll hear

the Rebbe's fabrengen every shabbes.

- You'll be up to your ears

with the Rebbe.

- I, I don't know what to say.

Only that Sender Horowitz

always looks out for his family...

especially his favorite

kid brother.


Is easier if you don't watch.

If they can do it,

I can watch it.


Is fantastic!

So many different kinds of people.
