YeLAdim will be mixing it up next year with more movies, books, music and TV reviews than ever before. If you have a review you've written (or want to write) or have heard of something that you want us to know about, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. You'll be famous, and your parents and grandparents will have something to hang on their fridge.
See ya in 2007!!!

Hope for the New Year
Fourth-graders Avi Berman and Jordan Stern, along with their classmates at Sinai Akiba, created these poems about Israel:
"Peace," by Avi Berman
Hand in hand.
Praying for peace
In all of Israel's land.
As soldiers stand
In the night.
From a fight.
"My Prayer for Israel," by Jordan Stern
I hope Israel will have peace.
No homeless people or robbers.
Lots of space for kids to play.
And praying for soldiers every day.
Peace for Israel is like flying in the sky.
It doesn't matter how high, how high.
Peace for Israel is like riding a boat,
While you're trying to stay afloat.
