A promise of on-going Judaism in a family


We have been discussing Birchot haTorah, the blessings we recite before studying Torah.

The first blessing includes a paragraph asking Gd to make the Torah sweet within our mouths, and the mouths of our descendants. The text specifically includes our grandchildren, hinting at a promise that a family which has three consecutive Torah-embracing generations will never permanently lose its attachment to Torah.

(Mishneh Berurah 47:9)

Have a great day,
