At the Start of a New School Year

Sep 03, 2019

Each August, as a new school year approaches, the cycle of Torah study is in its “home stretch,” nearing the close of the fifth and final book of the Torah, Devarim.  Devarim means “words.”  It is a title drawn from the opening phrase of the book: “These are the words that Moses spoke….”  The context is dramatic: Moses, liberator, lawgiver and leader of the Israelites for forty years, will soon die; the book is his farewell addresses, delivered over the last weeks of his life.  Devarim offers much on which to reflect, as a new school year begins.

The Changing Early Childhood Landscape in Los Angeles

Aug 01, 2019

Not so long ago, Jewish preschools were thought of as “child care” and/or a way for their parent organizations (synagogues and day schools) to increase membership. In the past few decades, these programs have moved far beyond those limited roles, gaining in perceived importance. As the benefits and importance of early childhood education have become more widely acknowledged, parents have bought in - preschool has pretty much become a “given” among Jewish parents.
