How Education Kept Judaism Alive

How Education Kept Judaism Alive

An entire nation of intellect and innovation began with ancient schools emphasizing long passages of memorization and discussion. These Yeshiva schools create a culture of dialogue and critical thinking. For centuries, the Holy Scriptures were ingrained amongst the students of the Talmud. This culture continues in present day Israel.

 

Learn the history and the various styles of how these teachers encourage thought provoking ideas to young Jewish minds today.

“Continued emphasis on education is the beating heart of what keeps Judaism alive.”

See how archeological finds speak to the oldest Biblical record predating the Dead Sea Scrolls to 600 BC.
