You Can Do What?!

Tzipi Wolner

Everyone has a talent. Yours might be that you can sing like a bird, dance like a swan, or cook like a chef. However, can you pull a truck with your teeth? Neither can I! But there are folks out there who actually can.

 

Voices

Rachel Stein

Calling all talents! Nearim invites all middle-school boys for our annual talent show. The top two winners will receive a $50 gift certificate to Fun and Games, and their pictures will be posted in our monthly newsletter. Hmm. Yehuda studied the poster on the school bulletin board. Sounds interesting. But what can I do? They’re probably looking for guys who have real talents, like art, music, woodwork… I never win anything anyway. So why should I bother entering?

 

Who’s Going to Save Danny’s Animals?

Shira Yehudit Djalilmand

I’ve always been jealous of my friend Danny. Although that’s not actually quite true — Danny isn’t exactly my friend, and I’m not exactly jealous of him because I know Hashem gives each of us what we need — but I still think it would be fun if I had what Danny has.
