Jewish Values on Teamwork – CLICK TO COMMENT

By Evelyn Antebi Hanukkah was coming. My classmates and I decided to make a play about Hanukkah to perform to the whole 7th grade. We were picking jobs to do for the play. I decided that I wanted to design all the costumes. When I got home I noticed that I didn’t know what I was doing. I tried to think of who would be a good person to help me. I thought and thought until I remembered how good Susan dresses. Maybe if I call her she’ll come to my house and help me. So, I called her up and explained to her what happened. First she wasn’t sure if she wanted to come. Then I complimented her on how much I liked her style in clothes and she came right over. She helped me with all the styles and the costumes looked better than ever. When the day of the play came everyone kept telling me how much they liked the costumes. I said thank you but I told them that Susan did most of the work and they should go to her and compliment her. They did. Susan felt very happy that she helped me and she got the credit for doing it.
