Final Reflection of MJDS

What is something you accomplished this year that you are proud of?

I am proud of completing my 10 year stay at MJDS

What makes you proud to be Jewish?

Having so much intense Jewish history behind what I and other Jews do today and having an extensive knowledge of Judaism so that I understand what I am doing.

What is something we did this year that you think you will remember for the rest of your life?

Being in a community so small and tight knit, but at a same time so big and wonderful to be in.


This is eking20, posting for the last time. And this is also the only blog post I ever enjoyed writing. šŸ™‚

Opinions on school

If I were to change one thing about school, I would make there be NO required blogs so I would have to go through the torture of doing this useless student blogging challenge thing and all of the other useless stuff that nobody cares about except the people like our parents that we talk to every day. I don’t even think that the parents of anyone who is doing this that I know even ares about this. I think that the student blogging challenge is the most USELESS thing we’ve EVER EVER EVER EVER done in the ENTIRE HISTORY of this school. I rest my case.

Blogs I read


I learned a lot of ways to learn German for free.

Who am I as an Avatar

My avatar is an attempt to make it look like me. I could not find any other way to do it.

I chose to make it look like me because I am me. And me describes me.

The super power to have any super power at any given moment

This is where I did it:

Dear President Roosevelt

Dear President Roosevelt,

I think we should not turn away Jews on the St. Louis. ThisĀ is completely ridiculous and this is a humanitarian crisis. We are not allowing people in need into this country purely because they are Jewish.

Our constitution says that we cannot discriminate against people based on religion, and that is what is happening in our waters. And if we send them back, they might die in Germany. In addition, in Jewish law, you cannot turn away a stranger in need.

These are some of many reasons that we cannot turn away the Jews on theĀ St. Louis. Thank you for reading.

Consider this,

Ben Dover
