A story about
Everyone knows that the best restaurant for children in town is Samach’s deli. Samach knows that so many children come to its restaurant so it makes sure that all the food it sliced perfectly in to small easy to eat pieces. That’s why if you ever walk into Samach’s restaurant you will notice that even Samach itself has a small slice. But the most remarkable things about Samach’s restaurant is that it has Siddurim (prayer books) on every table so the children can read the bracha (blessings) before they eat and say the Birchat Hamazon (grace after meals) after they eat. Even during Sukkot Samach has you covered, because each year Samach builds a Sukkah and moves all the tables, chairs and Siddurim to the Sukkah so his guests can fulfil the Mitzvah of eating in a Sukkah.
