“You Shall Teach [the words of Torah] to your children”
- Deuteronomy 6:7
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. We hope that your experience at Family Education programming will enrich your family long after the program ends.
All family education programs are designed for students to learn alongside a parent or other significant adult family member/caregiver.
