Devora Zheutlin, MA, CAS

“You don’t need a certain number of friends, just a number of friends you can be certain of.” How is friendship refined and defined?

“There’s actually something I wanted to talk to you about,” she began hesitantly. “You know how my father lost his job, right?”

 

DMCs: Bubby and Me

As told to Leah Greenburg

I know I was supposed to be all happy; what a mitzvah, right? But honestly, I felt like I was being displaced and was very resentful

 

Petals Unfurled

Chana Cohen

“You’ve been asking wonderful questions for so long. You’ve always been one of the most active participants in our class discussions. What’s changed?”

 

Song of the Sea: Chapter 1

Rivka Streicher

“Daddy, can you hear my song? Is school a place where I can sing? And will anyone sing with me?” It’s the start of high school and impressions count. Naomi’s parents are recently divorced and she has withdrawn from everybody and everything she loves. Will Naomi find the strength to delve into her own inner world and learn how to trust again?

Chaim Finkelstein

My bubby Rivka Leah was very proud of her father, Reb Yehuda Leib Rubin ztz”l, and the kiddush Hashem he once made for Shabbos

 

Tales of Treasure: Treasure on the Bench

Julie Hauser

I was the hero for saving this bentsher, for saving Hashem’s Name. I couldn’t believe someone had thrown it away

 

Tales of Treasure: One Treasure Lost, One Treasure Saved

Rhona Lewis

Mom stopped walking. “I see you have a gun,” she said to him. “Keep calm and don’t do anything you’ll regret”

 

Jolly Solly: Fishel, Faivish, and the Sweet Deal

Fishel nearly choked right then and there. Half a million bucks for an old book?!
