| "To teach each other and
our children the traditional languages, arts and ideas of Judaism."
This is the sixth of the
ten principles on which Congregation Neve Shalom was founded.
It begins with "to teach each other...."
At Neve Shalom, we have an active group of students many of whom
we expect to become teachers. That's how it works, when someone
learns something that is dear to him, she passes it along with enthusiasm
We depend on the spirit of transmission that arises when the student
becomes the teacher, training new students, and we believe that
is how Torah will be maintained in Israel.
We try to create an imaginative and innovative school.
We meet many more times than the conventional schools. Thus, we
have been able to cover a great deal. Rather than just touching
the surface of topics we like to have the children delve deeper.
We discuss midrash, think about a lesson's relevance to our lives
and even try to imagine how the story would unfold in today's world.
