“You Shall Teach [the words of Torah] to your children”  

                                                             - Deuteronomy 6:7

Family Ed 2

Rabbi Menahem Mendel of Kotzk taught: If you truly wish your children to study Torah, study it yourself in their presence. They will follow your example. Otherwise, they will not themselves study Torah but will simply instruct their children to do so.

Here at Temple Isaiah, we believe in “learning Torah, being Torah.” One of the best ways to make that motto come alive for our students and to show them that Jewish learning isn’t just something for kids but rather a life-long activity, is to create opportunities for parents and children to study together, and for children to see their parents engaged in learning Torah.

New for the 2017-18 school year we are launching a special program for fifth grade families, Maglei Tzedek: A Family Giving Circles Initiative. The Family Giving Circle program is designed to help parents spark a love of giving in their children, connect in a meaningful way with other fifth grade families, allocate funds to local and Israeli charities, and gain a deeper understanding of what Judaism has to say about our obligation to give Tzedakah. Over the course of the year, fifth grade families will gather four times for study, conversation, and decision making. An the end of the year, we’ll share our allocation decisions.

All family education programs are designed for students to learn alongside a parent or other significant adult family member/caregiver.

We hope that your experience at Family Education programming will enrich your family long after the program ends
