Another signature Joe Biden blunder left attendees of a White House gathering, in recognition of the upcoming Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah, praying for understanding.

In an attempt to up the brownie points with the rabbis in the room, Biden began retelling the memory of his daughter’s wedding, which was equal parts a Catholic and Jewish celebration.

From praising Yah to yawning, the 46th president’s muffled speech sent the rabbis bowing a head — either out of disappointment in their Commander in Chief, or in prayer for his cognition.
