Veshinantam Levanekha (Teach Them to Your Children)
How to Learn Torah with your Kids

Eden Migdal, Ethan Tucker, Yitzhak Tucker

Children & Families, Sacred Text & Thought

In this session--*geared to adults*--we will model how we learn Tanakh (the Hebrew Bible) in our house several nights a week. We will pick a few model passages from our weekly Torah reading to demonstrate our method: 1) Hearing the text of the Tanakh in the original; 2) Translation and explanation; 3) Discussion and analysis. This session will work with an 8- and 6-year old, but the method is appropriate starting at age 3.
