Humble, Why?

A WEEKLY TORAH THOUGHT FROM RABBI MORDY This week’s Parsha, Behar, contains various laws, including that of the Sabbatical and Jubilee years.

Michael Supowitz Blog Post Last Wednesday, I helped to set up for FOTT Café. The decorations made by PA Cyber looked great–my favorites were the penguins.  There also were snowflakes, ice cubes, icicles, and centerpieces. I felt comfortable helping to finish decorating. The FOTT Café theme decorations looked beautiful and reminded me of a winter wonderland.

Being an Office Assistant

My favorite thing that I have done at Friendship Circle in the past month is draw pictures. As an office assistant, I enjoy sorting money very much. My favorite memory of being an office assistant was when Cara and I put a bunch of fish on the board for Friendship Shabbat. In February, I am most looking forward to celebrating… Read More
