“Education’s First Stages Determine A Person’s Future Life.”
This means that we, parents and teachers, are affecting eternity. The education we provide our children today affects them forever. What an awesome responsibility we are carrying!
What constitutes a quality education? Surely, in this age of information, a good education is not only about building knowledge or honing skills (though that is surely important too.) The ever important goal is to build the child’s identity, the child’s sense of self. For it is with our fundamental sense of self that we approach every aspect of our lives. For Jewish children, their sense of self is intrinsically bound to their Jewish identity. It stands to reason: If a child needs a positive self-image, a Jewish child needs a positive Judaic image.
