ELYSE SKLAR AND
SIMCHA TZIPPY COHEN

Special to the Jewish News

T

his is the story of us —
two 18-year-old girls, two
different backgrounds and
one single passion:

Judaism.
We met each other 3 1 /2 years ago at
a Shabbat retreat in Southfield,
through a mutual friend. Right
away, we clicked and felt at ease with
each other. Since then, we've been
learning together on Tuesday nights,
at the same time forging a very spe-
cial friendship.

Shabbat and Sukkot with her family,
and she enjoyed meals together on
various occasions with my family.
We had bebome great friends.
I began to realize that if you let
HaShem enter your life, HaShem
will allow opportunity to enter
yours. I'm sure Simcha Tzippy would
agree that we've accomplished a lot
building our friendship and learning
together. I'm lucky to have been
taught by her. She has an amazing
intellect combined with passion,
