Nonny Bear and the Missing Shoe

Yael Mermelstein

If you were a shoe, what kind would you be? Gavriel Farber says he’d be a boot; that way he’d be long enough to have places to hide, and he’d be all snuggly and warm. My brother Benny says he’d be a sandal because he likes to feel the wind and the sun.

 

Zeidy’s on a Diet!

Rabbi Nachman Zakon

Zeidy, you look so much better since the last time we saw you! That’s right. Ever since Bubby put me on a health food diet I feel great. I have more kochos to serve Hashem, and to take you kids on trips. I don’t even mind having a meatless, sweet potato and wheat germ cholent.
