One sunny day, Rina gets ready to go out with a friend. But when rain spoils that plan, Rina just says, “Gam zu l’tova; I trust this is good,” and has a new idea… she’ll cook lunch and invite her friend over to play indoors.
When that doesn’t work out, Rina says “Gam zu l’tova again… but what good thing could possibly come from so much disappointment?
Sometimes we never know why something is truly good. But Rina finds out that every event that happened on her rainy day was all part of Hashem’s plan, leading to a very happy ending!
Rina’s Rainy Day can help children understand that “Gam zu l’tova” is more than a beautiful phrase, it’s an important attitude for life.
