Nanach Curriculum

Previously I wrote about how next year B”H Israeli public schools will begin to teach Tora. The next day I was learning in Likutay Halachos (Orach Chaim – laws of Tefilin (phylacteries) 6:24) that just as by the Holy Blessed Merciful One God wherever we see His greatness there we see His humility, so too by the Holy nation of Israel, the greater we get the more humble we are. In this same Tora, Rabbi Nussun explains how humility comes from studying the Tora. So I was thinking that this huge addition of Tora learning – B”H millions of hours – is a clear indication the Israel has reached new greatness.
This piece of news, of the new school curriculum, came right after the Supreme Court’s ys”v edict not to give stipends for Tora study. Unfortunately many of the people relying on these stipends are entrenched in systems that prevent them from breaking free to lead a life of holiness as prescribed by Na Nach Nachma Nachman MiUman, whereas the secular children are very open and thirsting to become Nanach. So H”Y in his great mercy, compassion, and concern, shifted the balance, and brought the Tora learning closer and more accessible to the children.
Another interesting point about the new curriculum is that it coincides with the Jewish Agencies realization that today it is pointless to spread Zionism, what is necessary is to teach people their Jewish identity. Thus they have also shown how greatly they have been influenced by our master Na Nach Nachma Nachman MiUman.
