In the paragraph of S’hema that we always associate with our love expressed for Hashem, the words Veshinantam Le’vanecha appear. They not only obligate us in teaching our children all that is Jewishly important, but inform us as well that our love for G-d is to be expressed through our parental role as teachers. These words were never capped with an age limit, and as everyone knows, the older a child becomes and the more knowledge he or she has, the more enjoyable is the interchange between the two.
This year we turn to you to make our Mizrachi Motzei Shabbat learning experience one that is ageless. We ask that you come to our Beit Midrash with your son, daughter, grandchild – or even spouse – and enable our Beit Midrash to shine as a family venue, for the study of Torah. So please, make the time, make the effort, make it happen and, in doing so, make it one of your most memorable quality time experiences.
Rabbi Yaakov Sprung
