What are Torah Values


What you praise is who you are

We get excited from materialistic things. For example, if someone is a good basketball player or if someone has fancy shoes, nice toys, or cool games we praise him and we make a big deal about it. However, we should have at least the same excitement for our friend’s inner quality. Imagine your parents asking you to choose from your friends to work in their family business.

A. Which inner qualities do your friends have that would help make your family business more successful? Give an example.

B. How can this quality contribute to making your family business more successful?
Write an actual example that shows that your friend has that inner quality.

Example for honesty: You are playing cards with your friend and while you weren’t looking he saw your cards by mistake and he told you about it.
