Magical Cafe

Today we opened a cafe to learn how it feels to work at a cafe, to practice our math skills, and to donate money to the poor. I was a cashier with Andrew. As a cashier, we gave out the bills and gave correct change. This was really hard because you have to add the prices fast and give the correct amount of money back as the change. Also everyone worked together to make the food. Here is a list of the food we served: Banana Bread, Coffee Cake Blueberry Muffins, Breakfast Casseroles, Pancakes, Apple Walnut Greek Yogurt Dip, Fruit Salad, Tea, Coffee, and Orange Juice. After Everyone left, we got to try the food we made. I really loved the Banana Bread I had! I had A LOT of fun doing this activity. I learned that you need to go fast to give the bills because if there are a lot of people there will be a lot of bills needed to be given every second. I also learned that you must be very calm because if you get into a argument with someone, you must stay calm and explain. I now know to be very patient when I go to a restaurant!

Last week was Yom HaAtzmaut and I went to 6 different stations at school to learn about Jerusalem. My favorite station was the sports because I like running around and having fun. I played basketball and soccer and had a lot of fun. Yom HaAtzmaut is a celebration for Jerusalem’s birthday. I saved a falafel to eat at home. I also wrote a letter to put in the Kotel. I had a lot of fun during the celebration.

My mom and my favorite Parasha in Sefer Shemot is Yitro because it describes the 5th commandment which is to honor your mother and father. We think that one is important because a person who obeys their parents will learn how to serve in their community and in their job with respect. In other words, you will become a better person. You shouldn’t only obey your parents though, you should also be helpful to them. You should help them with things that they are doing without them needing to tell you.
