A Productive Vacation

For many of you it is spring break. Do you feel like a newly freed Israelite, having escaped from the hard work of school? For a whole week you can get up at whatever time you want! But remember, even when we are free -- especially when we are free -- we have the responsibility to take care of ourselves and others. 

So, don't just loll around the house and watch TV. Help your mom with the groceries; play catch with your little brother; plant a garden for Mother Earth.
