The one on the right is Eva. The one on the left is Rose.
Stephanie is on the left. The one on the right is Joy.
On the left is Cipora, because I like funny things. The one on the right is Shoshana.
Cipora looks very funny and happy, the other one looks very serious.
They’re very close friends. They probably grew up together.
They’ve lived together for many years. They don’t necessarily get along.
They fight like cats and dogs.
They fight over differences of opinion.
They fight about food, who gets the bigger cake.
They seem very attached to one each other, whether it’s in a good way or not.
They come from Hungary.
I think from Russia, generally.
I am from Hungary. I never saw this kind of hat.
They live in Los Angeles now and are affiliated with the center.
Perhaps they’re from New York. It’s cold there, and there’s snow.
Right now they are in LA.
They’re not so old to retire. They should work for the Federation.
Their work is whatever they can pick up.
They work for the theatre.
It’s a very cold day. They’re going somewhere.
Their hats are something special. They look like they’re in the theatre.
They have special coats because it’s cold. They’ve put up their collars.
What they’re wearing is outrageous.
They’re going to the theatre to see a very good show.
They’re going to light candles, first a Hanukkah candle, then a Shabbat candle.
Maybe their hats are menorahs. They will light candles on their heads!
They may be going to a religious place.
Maybe to synagogue—without hats, they can’t go.
Yes, they have to have their heads covered.
They’re going to dance.
They’re just going anywhere.
A Hanukkah party…at the Jewish Federation.
Perhaps going to a social worker, like Sarah.
After the show, they will go eat something, maybe some cake, drink some coffee.
They are going to eat doughnuts.
Yes, they had doughnuts yesterday, all kinds of doughnuts!
It’s getting late, so they’re going to bed.
I don’t know that they’re going to bed. A lot of people can’t sleep late at night.
I’d give them a piece of chocolate.
They’re friends going out to be free.
They’re leaving their children and husbands and all that mess at home.
If they go home, they have to clean up the house.
So they’re going to go to the theater and have lunch and have fun.
