Parashat Vayigash
In Parashat Vayigash, Yosef revealed his true identity to his brothers. Yosef’s brothers brought Benjamin to him. Yosef’s brothers wanted to go to back to eretz Canaan. Yosef had a plan. He asked his servants to fill his brothers sack with grain, and put his silver cup in the sack of Benjamin. Then he asked them to go after his brothers saying that the my cup is missing. They found his silver cup in Benjamin’s sack and Judah took the blame. Yosef realized that his brothers learned from what they did years ago and revealed who he was. The brothers were surprised and traveled back to eretz Canaan to tell Yaacov.
Yaacov moved his home to Goshen with his family and Yosef went there to see him. Pharaoh wanted to put Yosef’s brothers in the army. Yosef brought his weakest looking brothers to Pharaoh and said they are not army material. Pharaoh agreed, so they ended up taking care of Pharaoh’s cows.
Pharaoh’s people ran out of food and Yosef said he’d trade food for animals. A year later they ran out of food again and traded slavery for food and seed.

My Life Lesson
My life lesson is to always tell the truth, because anything could of happened if Yosef didn’t reveal his identity.

Activity

My activity was I put people into groups and had them pick out a card with a name of someone in Jewish history.  Then one group stood up and asked yes or no questions about the person.  After five questions they guessed who the person was. I did this activity because Yosef revealed himself to his brothers so the groups revealed their card to the other groups.

 

The state symbols I choose are orange juice,the alligator, Old Folks at Home, and the Florida Panther.

My first symbol is orange juice. I choose orange juice because most oranges come from Florida.Florida’s orange juice is popular all over the country.

For my second symbol I choose Old Folks at Home

I choose our state song because Stephen Foster thought up the song looking at a map which is unique. He also changed the name of the river Suwannee to Swanee.

My third symbol is The Alligator. I choose the gator because it represents bravery in our state. We have been through lots of hurricanes and were brave.
For my fourth symbol I choose The Florida Panther.Panthers are swift and well prepared, so are Floridians. Panther are also strong, and so are we.

I hope you like My Florida State Seal,

    You should read Attack of The Fluffy Bunnies. It is about bunny like aliens from the Mallow Galaxy. The Starburst is in the middle of the Mallow Galaxy,and gives energy to all living things in the Mallow Galaxy.

    In this book two kids (named Joules and Kevin) went to summer camp,but evil bunnies invaded the camp and tried to take over the world. The bunnies wanted to have sweet stuff like candy bars and marshmallows. They then tried to give humans lots of sugar and then eat the humans.

    I would rate this book four and a half stars out of five. This is a very funny book,but there was too much silliness. This is an interesting book and I think you should read Attack of The Fluffy Bunnies by Andrea Beaty.           

 

On May 19th 2017 we opened a café. We had great service! I was a host. My mom couldn’t come but my dad did. The money was for tzadaka. We got more than 200 dollars. We got good service. Everyone loved the food. After everyone left we ate the leftovers. My favorite was the banana bread. The Magical Café was a huge success.

Yom HaAtzmaot is fun. It is Israels 69th birthday. We did stuff  like EAT FALAFEL and a chocolate bar. We played basketball –  knockout and soccer (Israel has a soccer and basketball team). We learned about the Western Wall and got to put paper in the “Western Wall”. I wrote two things. We learned a Israeli song. It was  lots of fun.

In Parasha Ki Tisa the symbol is a way to show a half. I like it because it shows that there is a good side of people and a bad side of people. I also like it because it shows that people are on the same side as you even if that person seems against you. It shows that there is no good people and no bad people, they just have different reasons.

I like Parasha Ki Tisa and I hope you do too.
