One More Trip to Kenya

Rhona Lewis

We’ve visited lots of places in Kenya, a country teeming with wildlife and natural beauty. But we’ve saved the best for last.… This time we’re going to climb an enormous mountain. It’s so tall that, even though it’s on the equator, where the weather is mostly warm, this mountain is topped with snow. Now imagine seeing tens of thousands of animals storming across the savannah; a huge expanse of vast, grassy land. We’re going to fit that into this visit, too!

 

Mishpacha Junior Speaks to Meir Barbi

Rhona Lewis

Meir Barbi is a one-man band player. He calls his band Sameach leSameach. He plays at simchahs and makes people dance and smile till the corners of their mouths are glued upwards. He does this even though he can’t see them dancing and smiling. You see, Meir Barbi is blind.

 

It Happened to Me: Guilty as Charged

Beth Firestone

My name is Shuey Gravitzky. Well, not really. I’m changing all names to protect the guilty. Yes, that’s right. Guilty, as charged.
