HIH Teaching Classes What We Believe Torah Teaching Resources
Moshe wrote the Torah (Hebrew = Ohr, meaning "light" and instruction). It contains the history of our people, the Hebrews (Israel) as well as Yah's instructions for how we are to live our lives. "And these words which I command you this day, shall be in your heart. And You shall teach them diligently to your children and speak of them when You sit in your Beyth (house) and when You walk by the way, and when You lie down and when You rise up." - Debarim 6:6-7, Hidden Truths Hebraic Scrolls Bible
It is our responsibility as Israelites to uphold the truths of the Most High and His laws, statutes and commandments, and that includes teaching and raising our children. If they are not learning in their current environment (public/private schools) we have to teach them ourselves. We cannot simply afford to rely on a broken system of education to teach our children. Nor can we leave our children in an environment that does not teach them the ways of Torah. In the end this is our job and Yah holds us accountable.
Most of what happens in schools today, actually goes against Torah-keeping and living. So even if you are teaching them at home, but then still send them off to the local brick and mortar school for 6 or so hours daily, all that goes right out of the window because nobody there in the institution is Torah-observant. The school and its environment then actually does the rearing of the children in this instance, given the amount of time they spend there and that is going to have a lasting affect and impression upon our children.
If you are still sending your Hebrew-Israelite kids off to these schools, here are few questions to ponder:
What are they feeding your children? Is it good for them? Does the school menu reflect dietary law?
Do they learn about Pesach or Atonement? I'm sure they teach about Christmas, Halloween and Easter every year.
Do they pray before and after meals, or before school starts? Do they recite the Shema Israel? I'm pretty sure it's the Pledge of Allegiance to the U.S. Flag (a form of idolatry) they recite.
Are they actually learning, or performing below standard? What are they being taught? This is an important one.
Are they teaching any moral standards? If so, how? They do not use the Torah as a foundation, so then by what authority are they teaching these fundamentals?
These are only a few things to consider that are extremely important, but there are so many more questions to ask. By listing the above questions, I'm attempting to get us to thinking about what our children are being exposed to on a daily year in and out basis. American education lasts 12 years too. That adds up to a whole lot of time, exposure and influence.
A former NY school-teacher, John Taylor Gatto in The Underground History of American Education put it this way: "You have no say at all in choosing your teachers. You know nothing about their backgrounds or families. And the state knows little more than you do." Furthermore he states: "If I demanded you give your television to an anonymous, itinerant repairman who needed work, you'd think I was crazy. If I came with a policeman who forced you to pay the repairman, even after he broke your set, you would be outraged. Why are you so docile when you give up your child to a government agent called a schoolteacher?"
