What Now?

Hey, this is the 100th post! Pretty cool, huh?

So, as you can see, Girl Fun has been pretty quiet for a while. I was at camp for three weeks and had an unbelievable, unforgettable, inspiring, fun filled summer - hope to see you there next year! ;-)

I was home for a short while, and now I'm back at school - as a SENIOR! 

So now my question for you is...


What do YOU want to see? Should we continue posts everyday like we had before? Weekly posts? Games on the website? What do YOU want to see that will make the YALDAH website fun (besides a forum...sorry)? 

Post your answers/comments.

Dvar Torah for Parshat Matos

"When are we going to finally get to go to Mount Rushmore?" Josh asked for the hundredth time.

The Torah tells us about the many destinations through which the Jewish people passed as they traveled in the desert. The Torah begins by stating, 'These are the journeys of the Jewish nation as they came out of the land of Egypt.'

"The verse says 'the journeys', but it only took one journey, the very first one -- from Ra'amses to Sukkot -- for the Jewish people to get out of Egypt. Sukkot is already out of the boundaries of Egypt. Then why does the Torah say 'journeys?'...

Thought of the day

People are like stained glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there's a light from within.
