Positive Commandment 11 (Digest)
Studying and Teaching Torah

"And you shall teach them diligently to your children"Deuteronomy 6:7.

We are commanded to study and teach Torah to our students, whom the Torah refers to as our "children." We are instructed to study Torah to the extent that we are proficient in its teachings, and ready to answer without hesitation questions on that which we studied.


Translation of (the unabridged text of) Sefer Hamitzvot by Rabbi Berel Bell, member of the Rabbinical Court of Montreal and director of Teacher Training for the Jewish Learning Institute.

From "Sefer Hamitzvot in English," published by Sichos in English.
