Using Literature to Build Jewish Values in Your Children
Let's go "Beyond the Book" with
Let's Go To Shul
On Shavous Jews all over the world will be saying to their children, “Let's go to Shul “, Let's Go To Shul
is a wonderful book for the young child , for it introduces all the components of their “second home” - the community synagogue. The book jacket describes it all.
“A warm and cozy book,
Highlighting the joy of going to Shul on Shabbos morning
Join a young brother and sister as they put on special clothes,
Daven with their friends, kiss the Torah,
And get yummy Shabbos treats
Every child will be eager to say: Let's Go To Shul!”
The freedom go be able to go to a synagogue should not be taken for granted by our children. It's important to convey to our children the privileges that we have - freedom to speak, freedom to assemble, and freedom to worship. Children should be taught that these freedoms were not always given to Jews of past generations. That these freedoms, based on Jewish ethics are insured is a tribute to America's founding fathers and their wisdom. You could also say that the Bill Of Rights, are the commandments of America insuring that Jews can
Go To Shul.
To Go Beyond the Book with Let's Go To Shul
is to get in touch with the greatness of Torah and the preciousness of liberty. We find it joyful to go to Shul, because we are not afraid -we wear special clothes, because we are not deprived-we kiss and hear the words of Torah publicly, because it is not dangerous to do so, and we have treats, because we live in a time of plenty -Boroch Hashem!
We have been counting the days since Pesach and finally we will stand in Shul with our families and listen as the l0 commandments are read. Knowing that this year we celebrate Shabbos and Shavous together, empowers us all the more as we daven for “…healthy and viable children, children who will not cease from nor neglect the words of Torah.”
