Jewish Values on Friendship – CLICK TO COMMENT

By Shira Frenkel “Hi, my parents are going away can I stay with you for today?” Atara just asked me if she could stay at my house. She is the most popular girl in school. “Yeah, but I’ll need to ask my mother,” I said in excitement. I watched Atara go back to her popular group. Knock, knock. “That must be Atara,” I thought. “I’ll get the door.” “Hi, Malky. I like your house.” I think she is trying to be my friend. I think tomorrow she will let me be in her group. “So, what do you want to do?” Atara said, interrupting my thoughts. The next day at school, Atara pretended like she never met me. After all I did for her, she betrayed me. “Atara don’t you remember you stayed by me? We had so much fun?” I wanted to scream, but walked away instead.
