Synopsis
A disillusioned rabbi, who has lost faith in himself and his congregation, calls upon Godfrey, the owner of a small shoe store, to inquire about a pair of elevator shoes in an effort to get a little closer to God. The rabbi purchases the shoes and heads to his synagogue, confident in what he thinks is a new elevated state. Little does he know that Godfrey's youthful sidekick has stolen the lifts from the shoes in order to win a date with a girl who prefers taller men. When Godfrey realizes this, he rushes to the synagogue with the rabbi's lifts. He arrives too late. The service begins and Godfrey watches with amazement as the rabbi, believing that he is wearing the elevator shoes, is lifted, miraculously, to new heights.
