Jewish Service for the Week
This weeks’ Tuesday morning Jewish service explained that you can find peace and happiness wherever you go. Rabbi Michelle asked the students a couple questions to help them wake up.
Describe your past month in one word.
Some students answered with negative words and positive words. Rabbi continued to explain that we all go through positive and negative moments throughout our whole lives and if you answered with a negative, how can you change it into a positive if I ask this question again in a month?
What is something that makes you smile?
No matter how angry you are or how bad of a situation you are in, you will always have something to smile at. Some students responded by saying that their families or puppies make them smile. Rabbi than told us that one physical action of smiling can brighten our whole mood. It’s weird to think that such a small action can have a huge impact on your day.
What is something that you hope for?
What I noticed about this question is that all the students answered in a positive way. No one hopes for bad things to happen. We all hope have peace in the world or to get along better with our families.
