The Cantor Was a Crook, by Michael Wex in Tablet Magazine

In Tablet magazine, Michael Wex published a funny tragic true tale set in a Toronto synagogue subtitled, "First I learned that a wanted criminal from New York had fled to my Canadian shul; then I remembered that, as cantor, he'd begged God to forgive me." The vignettes that Wex describes about how people act in his synagogue are a complete riot.
