I learned about the Holocaust, Anne Frank and Tolerance exhibits. My favorite part was when I got a card for a boy or girl to learn about their lives during the war. I got a boy named Peter Zucker.

Mawi later says “My brother had always looked for angels. I had watched him see angels in the most unlikely places and wanted nothing more than to be like him”(Pg 110). Because of Mawi’s parents drilling the fact that he should do really well in school and the memory of his brother, he excelled academically and sometimes went to extremes to do so. For example, “Over Christmas vacation, I read and took notes on more than twelve hundred pages”(Pg 113) so that he could ace his junior English class. But in the end the book’s namesake (Of Beetles and Angels) came in to top things off.
“The First Seven Years” describes Feld, a Jewish cobbler who attempts to find an acceptable husband for his daughter, and Sobel, who had, “escaped Hitler’s incinerators,” (54). Both Feld and Sobel experience the strength to persevere that love provides, too. In Feld’s persistent search for a suitor for his daughter, Miriam, he believes his criteria will benefit her. He explains of Max, a boy studying to become an accountant, “Maybe he would awaken in her a desire to go to college; if not--[Feld’s] mind at last came to grips with the truth--let her marry an educated man and life a better life” (49).

This quarter I took Sinai Scholars at the University of California, Irvine with Rabbi Zevi. The class covered a variety of topics including: Marriage and Relationships, Torah, Mitzvot, Shabbat, and Mysticism. This class really sparked my interest when we were talking about Marriage and Relationships because it really connected to me in today 's modern world. I have always thought I would marry Jewish because I saw the struggles of my parents because my dad 's family is catholic. He converted for my mother and I always had great respect for that.
Striving to create a legacy through his fiction like his favorite fantasy authors had, Bradbury began publishing his writing out of high school. His love for science-fiction is evident throughout his work, especially in his novel Fahrenheit 451, a story that depicts a futuristic world intent on eradicating books in order to maintain an ignorant, unquestioning society. William Golding also incorporated his past experiences into his writing; however, unlike Bradbury, Golding’s later life influenced his stories. Being a grammar school teacher after college, Golding found writing inspiration in the unruly young boys he taught (“William Golding”). These children undoubtedly shaped Golding’s vision to write Lord of The Flies, a story in which a group of British boys stranded on an island disastrously attempt to govern themselves.
