A story about
Mem loves to explore G-D’s nature. Mem’s favourite places to explore are in the high mountains because Mem himself has 2 mountains which help it to climb. When climbing, Mem is also careful to make sure it is fulfilling the Mitzvah of taking care of its health, so it always takes some Mayim (water) along. If it climbs on Passover, Mem makes sure to take only Matzah and not bread for lunch. Last year Mem climbed a huge mountain on Chanukah, and by the time Mem got to the top it was already dark. Mem then pulled out a travel size Menorah and lit it on the top of the mountain, and it was one of Mem’s most inspiring and uplifting climbs. After a long day Mem finally arrived home, kissed the Mezuzah on its way in and enjoyed a restful evening.
