tions don't stop her, they steer her.
The best part, or perhaps the most
frustrating, is that the learning
never ends. The search for knowl-
edge is never over. You can always
make yourself a better person, a bet-
ter Jew. Life's most beautiful lessons
lie not only in our minds, but also
deep within our spiritual souls.
Simcha Tzippys View
Doing Partners in Torah has been
one of the most rewarding and ful-
filling experiences of my life. Being
able to provide Elyse with some of
the richness of our Jewish heritage,
and hopefully answer some of the
questions she had about Judaism,
has felt indescribably good.
Preparing for Partners each week
(and answering Elyse's constant
questions) has forced me to learn
and study about things that I would
otherwise not have known.
In addition to these obvious bene-
fits, I am lucky because I have
acquired for myself a lifelong friend.
Looking at us, both coming from
such different religious back-
grounds, one might think we have
nothing in common to keep our
friendship going. But a strong feel-
ing of Jewishness is our common
ground. Our relationship has been
so much more than an hour a week.
I feel that I am a part of Elyse's life,
and I'm sure she feels part of mine.
I admire Elyse greatly in the way
she strives for growth, and searches
for the truth. I am proud to be her
care so much!

As we go our separate ways this fall
— Elyse to Boston, Simcha Tzippy
to Jerusalem — we plan to keep
closely in touch. Even from far
away, we hope to continue being a
part of each other's lives, and con-
tinue learning from each other.
As far as Partners goes, maybe
when we're both in Detroit over the
summers, we'll make it back there
on Tuesday nights, picking up where
we left off. LI
