 לדף בעברית

Cheshvan 5769 - November 2008
Series of Lectures on Chinuch HaBanim - Child Education, organized by Moreinu HaRav Yitzchak Mordechai HaCohen Rubin shlit"a and hosted by Kehilat Bnei Torah - Har Nof.

Everybody knows that our future lays with our children and we all know how much there is and can be improved in their education. Both parents, as well as the educators that we entrust our children with, know that we need guidance and help from our Torah leaders and other experts in the field of Chinuch.

Therere, Moreinu HaRav Yitzchak Mordechai Rubin initiated and organized a series of lectures on the topic of Chinuch HaBanim - Child Education. Lectures will be held every 3-4 weeks this coming winter and will focus on different aspects of Chinuch and different goal groups. Seperate lectures will be held for educators, for fathers, for mothers, both in Hebrew as well as in English.

The opening session of this series was on Tuesday 20 Cheshvan 5769 (November 18, 2008).

We were greatly honored to be able to host one of the great Torah leaders in our generation HaGaon Rabbi Aaron Leib Steinman, shit"a. Rabbi Steinman addressed the appr. 1100 participants (men and woman) with his advice on Chinuch, as well as answer to questions submitted before the conference.
Opening words were said by Moreinu HaRav Yitzchak Mordechai Rubin, followed by the well-known Mechanech Rabbi Chizkiyahu Mishkovsky.
The Kennes was broadcasted live via Kol HaLashon, and the audio recordings are available for listening and downloading on this page. (Click to listen or right-click to download.)

  1. I wish someone would transcribe Rav Shteinman's answers. It is very hard to hear him.

  2. A printout of the answers would be helpful. Right now I'm still stuck with a bunch of questions :(

  3. Rav Steinman has some interesting replies. If I understood him correctly he seems to feel that it is best if mothers are out of the house - at for most of the day - and thus not raising the kids and the father's should be out learning Torah - and thus not raising the kids.

    the audio of his responses is not very clear.

    Does someone want to volunteer and transcribe one or two answers?
