Rabbi Riddle Says...
National Committee for Furtherance of Jewish Education

  It only takes a little to help a lot!Be Prepared!  
This week, we celebrate Lag B'Omer, the 33rd day between Passover and Shavuos. During this time, a terrible plague killed 24,000 students of Rabbi Akiva. The students died because they didn't honor each other. On the 33rd day of the Omer, the plague stopped. On the topic of honor, our sages teach:

  • Your fellow's honor should be as precious to you as your own.

  • One should also honor himself by cleanliness, proper clothes, and a good job.

  • Whoever runs after glory, glory runs away from him.

  It only takes a little to help a lot!Be Prepared!
