Each chanich has to find the chanich that has the cloud that matches his quote.

Ask your chanichim:

*We are surrounded with communication television , newspapers, books, movies ,signs on the street. Each quote is reflecting a certain statement: do we agree with all the statements?

*do all the thought clouds fit the style of life we believe in?

Remembering what is our goal is so important when we try to reach somewhere/someone. We must think what are the values and objects that fit our style of life (tora ve'avoda) and not to adopt every value we meet in other people/places/cultures.
