Stories to Build Friendship – CLICK TO COMMENT

By Evelyn Tebele A good friend is a friend who is always there for you. Someone I know was being teased by a group of mean girls. She needed someone to be there for her. Her friend stood up for her and told them to stop being mean to her. Even though the girl was very shy, she stood up for her friend because she loved her friend and couldn’t just sit there and watch her true friend be teased. That showed that she was there for her and she was willing to take the heat for her friend. That’s why they are really true friends because, if she was just using her, she wouldn’t care about her as much as she does.

    A wonderful story that we all can learn from. The Torah principle to love your fellow jew as yourself is what we can learn from this story. Children should be more sensitive to the feelings of their friends.

    This story demonstrates clearly the value of loyalty among friends. The fact that a friend stands up for what’s right means everything.
