  1. You meet your friend at the mall. As you step outside she offers you a cigarette. What do you do?
  2. You love chocolate! You find a bowl filled with Heshey Kisses that your mom left out for guests. No one is around. Should you take a few?
  3. You are attending your friend’s Bat Mitzvah. Everyone is standing up and praying silently. You’re sitting with your friends, who start getting rowdy. What do you do?

  4. Why do you think what we eat would be connected to the idea of holiness?
