For the Kids

Valuable Vacation

Summer's almost over. I hope you're having a great time. Did you go to camp? Were you in summer school? Did your parents take you on a fun trip?

In this week's Torah portion, Ekev, Moses asks the Israelites to remember that, while they are about to enter a rich and fertile land, "flowing with milk and honey," they must always remember those who need help: the orphan, the widow, the stranger and the poor.

So, while you continue to enjoy your summer, maybe you can also think a little about someone who needs your help. Why not pay a visit to a sick friend? Or bring some food to a homeless shelter? You can brighten up someone else's summer, too.

Helping Hands

Unscramble the words to discover what you can do to help others. At the SOVA Food Pantry, (818) 789-7633, you can OTRS ODOF, TKOSC EVSLHSE and CPKA RCEIGORSE.

You can help the Family Violence Project, (818) 505-0900. Ask your parents for all AMOPSOH, DINCNEROTOI and OPSA that they collected from hotels on vacation. Then pack them up with some gently used YSOT.

Joke Time

by Nathalie Interiano.

Rabbi Levi was taking a walk down the street when he came upon little Jacob, who was standing on tiptoe, trying to reach the doorbell.

The rabbi said, "Shalom. Here, let me help you."

The boy waited until the rabbi pushed the doorbell and then said, "Thanks rabbi. Now run as fast as you can!"
