Value of Education

May 30, 2012

Education and study have always been among the highest values of Judaism.  There is a sad lesson I remember well  learned from my father.  It summed up the centrality of the value of education in Judaism. These were words of a refugee from Hitler’s Europe.  He often said, “Do everything you can to get the best education, because it is one thing that can never be taken away from you.”  In 1938, at the age of sixteen, he was forced to leave his family and all he knew to travel by himself to Palestine, the only place in the world which would accept him as a refugee.

    Well since ignorance is the basis for most of the problems we experience in this world…too bad everyone doesn’t follow the refugees from Hitler’s Europe. Nice comments rabbi…
