All in all, comparing Sam’s culture shock experience to my culture shock experience, we were both surprised by how the locals live. Sam was shocked that the telephone could speak Arabic and I was shocked that young children could buy liquor. Having the experience of going through a feeling of culture shock can be good for most people, since they can be experiencing the best things that life has to offer, similar to Sam’s experience of coming to America.

I attended a Jewish preschool and grew up in a fairly Jewish area where the people around me were familiar with Jewish customs and traditions, even if they, themselves were not Jewish.

Full of wickedness, each generation worsens until Zeus wipes it out. The best creatures of the Golden Age did grow wicked. Zeus,raging at Prometheus for giving humans fire and helping them to cheat the gods with their sacrifices, decided to punish humans. He created Pandora, the first girl who, brings pain upon humanity with her curiosity. The gods gave Pandora a box and told her not to open it and she does of course open it, letting all the evil inside escape except hope, which is ironic.
Humanity, men and women alike, have severely overlooked the enduring power of Judaism as a whole. The Jewish culture portrayed pure tenacity towards the will to survive by their conviction, even we faced the greatest evil known to humanity… the Nazi Regime.
