How to Help Teachers and Parents

How to Help Teachers and ParentsA question I received: I understand that the issue of education is one of the most important things to you, and it must be the first thing on your agenda. Today, society disregards teachers, and they suffer from ridiculous budgets and low salaries (compared to the social sector). Additionally, classes are overcrowded with twice the permitted number of students, and there are always several children in a class who require special attention.

Moreover, teachers often need to explain the basic values and norms of behavior, since parents have no choice but to spend very little time with their children. I would like to know your opinion: Is it possible to change the situation, and how? Where will the teachers draw the strength to come out of this current state?

My Answer: Only our dissemination of Kabbalah among parents, the realization of their hopelessness, and their fear for their children will force parents to change the current education system or create a different one, which will work on creating “people” out of children.

Loneliness – Inside and Out

Loneliness - Inside and OutThe vanity of modern life, the myriad changes and trips, and abundant opportunities of communication, do not solve the problem of loneliness. It’s becoming more and more difficult to make new acquaintances, especially in order to create a family. About half of the people living in cities live alone, a tendency that’s only growing.

In the era of total freedom, it has become harder to make new acquaintances. Globalization and individualization are leading to a disintegration of social networks. Cell phones and the Internet are increasing the distance between people. People are increasingly communicating anonymously and virtually, instead of meeting face to face.

This is only the beginning of the expression of egoism – a cancerous tumor that is consuming us little by little. It is digging its own grave, as written, “Egoism is a help against you,” and “The Pharaoh will bring us closer to the Creator.”

Dates of the Torah’s Transmission from Moses to Our Days

Dates of the Torah\'s Transmission from Moses to Our DaysA question I received: Could you please date the transmission of the Torah from Moses to our days?

My Answer: It is written that Moses received the Torah on Mount Sinai (in 1312 BCE), and on the day of his passing he passed it on to his student Joshua (1272 BCE). Joshua passed the Torah to the elders or sages (1244 BCE), and the elders passed the Torah to the prophets (889 BCE). The prophets passed the Torah to the members of the Great Assembly (352 BCE). Whatever happened after that (from 312 BCE until our days) requires a separate, detailed review…
