What You Leave Behind


Can you think of someone who used to live in your neighborhood or went to your school but moved away? How did you feel when they moved? Was the person who left someone who did nice things for people? Was he or she helpful?

Inventive? Was it fun to play with that person? Then you probably miss him or her a little bit. Now think: What if you moved away? What kind of impression would you leave behind? Would people miss you?

Answer that question to yourself -- and be honest. It might be time to say: "I should be a little more helpful" or "Yeah, I'm a good kid."

Riddle Me This! Here's a Riddle. E-mail the answer

Charan is the name of the town that Abraham left and Jacob returns to in order to find a wife. Mount Ararat is where Noah's Ark landed. In which country can we find both of these biblical sites?

Hint: The answer has something to do with an upcoming holiday.

The Jewish Joke Box

Moishe was walking in the woods. Suddenly, a bear appeared and chased him. When the bear cornered him, Moishe thought his life is over until he saw the bear take out a yarmulke and put it on his head. "Oh, good," he thought, "he's a Jewish bear. He won't eat me." Then the bear said: "Hamotzi lechem min ha'aretz." (The blessing before eating a meal.)
