Pinny Visits Moscow

Shira Yehudit Djlilmand

All strapped in and ready to go? This time we have a long trip. We're visiting the largest country in the world - it covers a seventh of the earth’s land ... Russia.

 

Hello! Meet Yosef Yitzchak Lifshitz, 10, from Moscow

Shira Yehudit Djlilmand

I was born in Israel, and my saba and savta and all my aunts and uncles live there, so we fly back there every year to visit them. But when I was three, my abba was sent to Moscow to be the rav of the Chabad center in Schukino, a neighborhood in Moscow, so we all moved here.

 

Amazing You: Hair’s an Interesting Thing!

Tzivia E. Adler

Some people have straight hair, some people have curly hair. Some hair is dark, some is light. Some people think they have great hair, some don’t like their hair at all. David HaMelech’s son Avshalom had long, thick hair. When he cut it, he would donate its weight in gold for korbonos!
