Jewish Values on Friendship – CLICK TO COMMENT

By Jennifer Benzaken  One day, my friend Genelle invited me over to her house. When I went there, she said so many nice things about me. She asked me for money so we can buy something. I gave her a $10 bill. I had $5 left, but I didn’t care because she was my friend. When we got to the store, she asked for another $5. I said that’s all I have left and I wanted to get something for myself. She got upset and said, “I hate you,” and left. I had to call my mom to pick me up. That was mean of her to do that. When I went to school the next day, everyone came up to me and said, “Why didn’t you give Genelle any money? You had $15 and you didn’t want to share? You are mean!” I got upset and ran to Genelle. But, all of a sudden I slipped on water and everyone was laughing, except for Genelle. She had a camera in her hand and was taking a video. I ran away. She called me cry baby. I went to the office to wait till my mom came. If your friend does something mean, she is not a real friend.



  1. I learned if I lose a friend I will try to let her know that I miss her

    Wow! I feel terrible for Jennifer, it’s enough that she lost a “friend” but for that girl to tell everyone what happened is not okay. Lesson learned that you may think they’re your true friend but it may be just the opposite.
