A Note from Morah Melissa
Soon, we will welcome our third graders into a formal course of Jewish study. It is an interesting time because I have always found that for many of us a beginning connotes an ending. Jewish life does not have an ending, and it certainly is not at a child's Bar or Bat Mitzvah. I encourage each of our families to consider what you began, what is your end game? Right now, the concern may be Bar and Bat Mitzvah-but look further. What do you hope your child's Jewish future will look like? Jewish grandchildren? A college with Jewish kids? Perhaps a Jewish fraternity and sorority? If any of those (or the many more things we wish for our children) hold true, map out your journey. 4 years of Hebrew school cannot produce a Jewish adult. You need to immerse your family in values and ideas consistent with a Jewish upbringing- camp, celebrations, learning and modeling are all necessary for the Jewish future you imagine. So don't visit AAA, visit TBA and consider the stops on your trip!
