From the Torah on Friendship – CLICK TO COMMENT

By Michelle Kassab One day, my friend Emily and I were at school. Lisa, the popular girl, came up to me and invited me to her party. But my best friend, Emily, wasn’t invited. I told Emily that if she wasn’t invited I won’t go either. Emily said, “Go and have fun.” So, I went. At the party, Lisa was acting like my best friend, but it felt strange. But, I still went with it. The next day, Lisa asked if I wanted to do homework together with her by her house. I said, “Yes.” But, then, Emily came up to me and asked if I want to go out tonight with her. I told her I had plans with Lisa. I said, “I won’t go.” But, Emily said, “Don’t worry, just go.” I went to Lisa’s house. When we were doing homework, it looked like I was doing all the work, but I just went with it. The next day, Lisa asked me to do her homework for her. I told her “No” and went to my best friend, Emily. Emily was a real friend, she took me back.
