Cleveland's Funniest Rabbi: Rabbi Dan Roberts On Best Of Bulletin Bloopers

Roberts participated in the Maltz Museum's competition to find Cleveland's Funniest Rabbi

The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage held its second ever Cleveland's Funniest Rabbi contest earlier this week.

Dr. Kiva Shtull of Shir Shalom in Chagrin Falls won the prized Gold Chicken with his wealth of moyel and Geauga County jokes.

But while he may have been the funniest rabbi, he certainly wasn't the only funny rabbi who performed for the crowd Wednesday.

Watch all five contestants here.

Rabbi Dan Roberts of Temple Emanu El -- the defending champion -- did his best to defend his title, breaking out the props for some of his bulletin's funniest typos and recounting a hysterical story about the time he had to perform a wedding in midair.

The other competing rabbis were Rabbi Shmuel Friedman from Chabad, Rabbi Ephraim Karp from Menorah Park and Rabbi Lauren Werber of Temple B'nai Abraham.

The contest was judged by Bert Stratton, Violet Spevack and Steve Presser.
