Torah contest on Teamwork

By Gail Hafif In a play, the actors would have a better chance of having an amazing play if all the characters focused, even if they had one line, but said it with confidence, belief, voice, feeling and hope. That would make the play wonderful even if you didn’t have a spotlight. But the main actor should make it a point to recognize all the people who work behind the scene and make the play possible. He should say, “I am sorry you didn’t get so many parts, but if it weren’t for you I wouldn’t have known when to start and what to say, so thank you.”

  9. Marco Balas says:

    We learn several valuble lessons from this passage. We learn the concept of unit cohesiveness regardless of each particular role. We also learn that ony the sum of the parts make up the whole which is sometimes forgotten in a large production.

  10. Great insight that every person counts no matter where his place in the world.

  11. This story is so inspiring, its teaches us a lot about jewish values on team work!! great article !!

    We learn from Gail how to appreciate and thank those in the
    backround who make our lives better. it is not only those in the
    front whose acheivements are public and visible- those in the
    back make it happen!

  13. i learned from this inspiring passage that it doesn’t matter what role you get as long as your confident. also it shows that without the small parts there is no play or anything else.

  14. Sarit janani and natalie says:

  15. Viva anava and Sarit Alfieh says:

    We learned from this passage that even though you don’t have the main role you are still important because you said it with confidence so it matters.
