The Importance of Friendship

The benefits of friendship are appreciated by the Jewish tradition.

The Hebrew word for hand is "yad", one of in Hebrew words that define friendship is also "Yadid", composed of two yad, or "holding hands".

With the intensity of friendship, the feeling of confidence deepens. The differences end up when there building a friendship.

Kohelet, 4:9-10 (Ecclesiastes), say:
9 - Two are better than one, since they have good reward for their toil. 10 - For if they fall, one will lift up his friend, but woe to the one who falls and has no second one to lift him up.

Friendship is clearly more than one connection in the context of Jewish culture. Friends help each other with loyalty, protection, support, unselfish love and moral guidance.

The friendship is defined as one of the primary relationships in life, sometimes more than relatives and blood ties.

The words in hebrew for Friend(s)
- Chaver, male singular,
- Chaverah, female singular,
- Chaverim, male plural,
- Chaverot, female plural.

Convite
O livro "Continuando assim...", foi maltratado...

Resolvi por isso, e porque tanta gente não encontra o livro onde deveria estar (nas livrarias), recontar a história
Lá no …. Continuando assim…

Vamos em metade da história, o livro reescrito, não está igual (nem poderia!) ao que foi editado.
Obrigada a todos os que vão seguindo ( pois só assim vale a pena).
Um obrigada especial a quem ainda não conhece e chega de novo

Mais uma reflexão em relação a todo este assunto, e um conselho, se é que me é permitido:

--- quando vos pedirem dinheiro para editar as vossas palavras, simplesmente digam que não ---

Thanks for your lovely words about friendship. "Yadid" is one of the Hebrew words for friend, made up of yad and yad, or hand in hand, which is what friends do. Hebrew words give insights into culture that is so often missing in English!
