Yossi added a gumball to the mountain of candy on his dresser. It had been a great Shabbos
Thursday, March 09, 2017
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Cohen,
Yossi has a little extra homework to complete.
In class today, everyone was asked to write a rough draft of an essay titled, “The Importance of Shabbos.” Unfortunately, I could not accept Yossi’s work, and he’ll have to finish it at home. Sincerely,
Rabbi Shaya Margolies, Yeshivah Torah U’Mussar
by Yossi Cohen
Shabbos is important because it’s the most special day of the week.
Shabbos is the best day for getting candy. I don’t have enough money to buy the candy I need. On Shabbos, I get candy for free.
I like going to shul on Shabbos. Our shul has the best stuff — a candy man, who gives out extra lollipops if you beg, and a really good Kiddush.
Shabbos is my favorite day.

I’ve decided to resign as our shul’s candy man. I enjoy giving the kids’ treats, but lately the job has been interfering with my davening.
I hope you’re able to find someone else to help. My locker, number 407, has several bags of lollipops in it available for the kinderlach.
I look forward to attending your daf yomi shiur tomorrow.

Upcoming shiurim: Pirkei Avos — Shabbos at 6:00 p.m.; Daily daf yomi shiur by Rabbi Moskowitz: 6:00 a.m. * Yossi opened locker #407, excited to find out what treasures it held. He took a quick inventory: ten bags of lollipops, two bags of sucking candies, one package of gum. Not too bad, and definitely enough lollipops for Yossi to put aside a bag or two for himself.
Yossi’ calculations were interrupted by a sudden tug on his jacket. Surprised, Yossi looked down. It was some little kid, wanting a lollipop. Yossi smiled… his job had begun! (excerpted)
