A World of Computers

Symee Gilman

Shira Yehudit Djlilmand

Winter is sooo dull! Ima says it’s nice to be home all together in our warm house in Tzfas and appreciate Hashem’s blessing of the rain, and the fact that we have a warm house to protect us from the rain.

As I come near, I can hear a man shouting. “Wrong, wrong, wrong!”
