Jewish Values on Friendship – CLICK TO COMMENT

By Elena Betesh If you are new in town and you are not comfortable, a good friend would walk up to you and say, “Hi” or, “Do you need help?” That’s a good friend. Sometimes, you think that you have a good friend but then you hear them talking about you behind your back and, even when she sees you, she keeps talking and laughing at you. That’s a bad friend. If you got into a fight with your friend and you fall and get hurt and no one helped you but your friend that you were fighting with, that shows that she is really a good friend who cared about you even in a fight.

  16. Danielle T says:

    Being a good friend is always the key to friendship. this story just inspired me and I hope everyone else also to become better and caring friends. A friend that will help you get through hard times and sad times is a good friend. a friend who stabs you in the back and hurts you is not a good friend. This story shows all about a friend and the goodness and quality of good friends and warnings about bad ones. Great job Elena! you really taught everyone a lesson that we should learn in life.
