Torah Time: Parshat Behar

It was sports day at school and Rivka won a lot of games and got a lot of pom poms. She walked over to Lisa and saw that she didn’t have any pom poms. “Where are all your pom poms?” Rivka asked. “ I didn’t win any,” she said quietly. “Poor girl,” thought Rivka. She felt so sad for her. That’s when she stood up, walked into the middle of the class and announced, “We’re doing a collection. Who would like to give some pom poms to a friend who doesn’t have any?” She didn’t tell anybody who that friend was.

She took Lisa’s empty bag and walked around the class. She tried to get the kids to give some pom poms and do tzedaka. One by one, kids started putting pom poms in the bag and by the time she gave the bag to Lisa, it was overflowing.
