As summer approaches, the school year is coming to an end. An end for Morahs, moms, and students. It’s a time filled with anticipation and excitement. Even as a kid myself I remember counting down the days, weeks, and months, until the school year was over. But really are we ever done with learning? Life gives us the ability and opportunity to learn and grow every day. One of the best things about life is that we never have to stop learning. There will always be new skills to learn and grasp onto. Knowledge can come from anywhere and everywhere.
No matter how many times you find yourself lost, broken or confused. One must always hold an attitude to continue learning. Learning is a never-ending journey. From birth until death. For us to live life to the fullest, we must continually look for ways to improve.
There is no age or limit to which we can learn. I am 29 years old, and I just started to read Hebrew, learn about Jewish history, Torah, Prophets, lectures, learning about relationships, myself, Hashem, and Emunah. Learning is part of our Jewish culture. A way to teach family, friends, and your kids. It only depends on us, on our intentions, on our will to learn and discover something more, something new.
Never think that you know so much. Even though it’s the end of the school year, it is not the end of learning. It’s never too late to start learning again. No one is perfect in knowledge. Each one of us learns step by step through life.
“Develop a passion for learning, if you do, you will never cease to grow”
