The Giraffe Center in Nairobi

Rhona Lewis

Hi Kids! We’ve visited lots of interesting places together in my birthplace, Kenya. There’s so much left to see in this beautiful country. Today we’re going to visit a Giraffe Center, where, as you’ve probably guessed, we’ll get to see — and even hand-feed — all kinds of giraffes!

 

Amazing You – Necks

Tzivia Adler

Can you turn your head from side to side without bumping your chin on your shoulder? Imagine being built like a snowman, with your head directly over your chest. You couldn’t look to the side without turning your whole body around! Jewish people are called a stubborn, “stiff-necked nation” — am k’shei oref. This means that although there are many people who want Bnei Yisrael to behave like non-Jews, we stubbornly say that we will keep the Torah!

 

Dr. Mitzvah and the Bubble-Gum Glue

Yaffa Ganz

Everyone in Cedarville knew Dr. Mitzvah. Dr. Mitzvah wasn’t an ordinary sort of doctor. He did everything that regular doctors did, but he also took care of droopy plants and homeless kittens. He sat with cranky babies and sang songs to sick children. He repaired broken dolls and fixed old clocks and he always smiled. The sign in front of his house on Jericho Road said: Dr. Emaunel J. Mitzvah, D.M.E.: Doctor of Mostly Everything And that’s why, if you needed help of any kind, you came to Dr. Mitzvah.
