Why Jewish Education Matters

“I want to say to Jews around the world: Take it, cherish it, learn to understand and to love it. Carry it and it will carry you. And may you in turn pass it on to future generations. For you are a member of an eternal people, a letter in their scroll. Let their eternity live on in you.” – Rabbi Jonathan Sacks zt”l

Jews around the world have been mourning the loss of Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks zt”l since November 2020.  Rabbi Sacks zt”l left us many teachings to contemplate, including the importance of Jewish education.
