A Tough Problem
September came and thankfully the kids at King David High school were back in class. A few days in, the principal, Rabbi Epstein, was walking through the lunch room and noticed a few students hard at work on their calculators. Surprised that they had received such a difficult math problem so early in the school year, Rabbi Epstein approached them and asked what their assignment was.
One of the students, a girl named Shira looked up at Rabbi Epstein and replied, "We're figuring out how many days until spring break."
