In our challenging times, young people struggle to become who they are truly meant to be. It is our obligation as educators and parents to seek to uncover the essence and potential of our students and children, to help them make better choices and to believe in themselves. This book uses the weekly parashah (the Torah portion read in the synagogue each week) as a springboard to empower the entire family to participate in meaningful discussion with practical applications. Designed to keep the lines of communication open, it highlights surprisingly contemporary themes in each parashah appealing to multiple generations. Each topic is viewed through a lens of positive Jewish philosophy, emphasizing the value of seeing the world through the eyes of a child. The ideas discussed here will inevitably lead children and adults toward a life perspective that fosters harmony, encourages individuality, allows for new initiative, and breeds success through joy. The author borrows from multiple sources, compelling the reader to think from various angles. This is a companion for the Shabbat table or a platform for family discussion at any time.
