Places of Natural Beauty

Ray Rivlin

Around the world there are places of natural beauty that give us renewed appreciation of Hashem’s beautiful world. Natural beauty spots were mostly formed by erosion (the wearing away of rocks and soil by water, wind, and ice), by volcanic eruption, or from the earth’s natural movements. In this article, we tell you about some of these wonderful places. If you live near one of them, ask to be taken to see it for real. When you are all grown up, rich, and successful, maybe you’ll get to see the rest!

Then let Zeidy Zakon tell you all about …Chizkiyahu HaMelech!

 

The Courage to Stand Apart

Aliza Goldin

One of the most common questions I get on the topic of tzniyus — and one that I admit I used to ask myself over the years, before I started learning more — is, “Is tzniyus really that important?!” I mean, everyone understands that tzniyus is a basic component of a Jews’ avodas Hashem … but is it really as big of a deal as everyone makes it out to be? Could it really be that the fate of the Jewish people relies on the tzniyus of the women?
