Subject:  Davening vest
Message:  In my shul there is a rule that anyone who davens for the amud (whoever acts as the cantor) must wear a jacket. Now, many individuals who want to daven for the amud don't bring a jacket. So, there is this one guy who supplies these people with a 'loaner' - it's this ugly blue vest which looks like a cross between a bullet proof vest and a life jacket. It is not at all respectable - I wouldn't wear that on a first date!!
Is this really better than not wearing a jacket at all? What do you think should be done?
Reply:  I think maybe we should add a "Gartel" to the mix and really spiff it up.
