No Need to Wait

When it comes to Jewish education, some parents ask, “What’s the rush? When our child learns right from wrong, and matures a little, then we’ll teach him about his heritage. It can wait until he is at least able to understand that he is part of the chosen people, and different to others.”
Hannah's Prayer, Early Childhood Education, Education, Lubavitcher Rebbe
No Need to Wait
Disc 171, Program 681

Event Date: 6 Tishrei 5731 - October 06, 1970

When it comes to Jewish education, some parents ask, “What’s the rush? When our child learns right from wrong, and matures a little, then we’ll teach him about his heritage. It can wait until he is at least able to understand that he is part of the chosen people, and different to others.”

Yet the story in the haftorah, of how Chana brought her son Samuel to the Tabernacle at the tender age of two, teaches us the time honored Jewish approach, now confirmed by modern day research, that it’s never too early to start.
