1. …and the doll in his hand is a “minion” — homophone of “minyan”.

    So he’s davening “with a minion”! Ha ! Ha!

  2. G. M. Hopkins’s secret Jewish side :

    I caught this morning morning’s minyan, king-
    dom of daylight’s dauphin, dapple-dawn-drawn Falcon, in his riding
    Of the rolling level underneath him steady air, and striding
    High there, how he rung upon the rein of a wimpling wing
    In his ecstasy! then off, off forth on swing,
    As a skate’s heel sweeps smooth on a bow-bend: the hurl and gliding
    Rebuffed the big wind. My heart in hiding
    Stirred for a bird,—the achieve of; the mastery of the thing

  3. P.S. After consulting an expert in these matters, I’ve been informed that the miniature prayer associate in this picture is not “Bob”: his name is “Dave”.

  4. On one of the news shows a rabbi was explaining that praying alone instead of with others is absolutely something Jews are allowed to do – my reaction to Robert was = what about prayers that need a minyan. Now I know the answer.
