Short Thought:

Speak to the kohanim, the sons of Aaron, and say to them… (Leviticus 21:1)

“Speak” and “say” — enjoin the elders regarding the youngsters.

(Talmud; Rashi)

The above dictum, which constitutes a primary biblical source for the concept of education, also offers insight into the nature of education.

The word used by the Talmud and Rashi — lehazhir, “to enjoin” — also means “to shine.” Hence the phrase “to enjoin the elders regarding the youngsters” also translates “to illuminate the elders regarding the youngsters.” Education is not only an elder teaching a youngster; it is also an illumination for the educator.

(The Lubavitcher Rebbe)


A Rabbi approaches a guest in Shul and says, “I’d like to give you an Aliyah. What is your name?
“The man answers, “Esther ben Moshe.
“The Rabbi says, “No, I need YOUR name.”
“It’s Esther ben Moshe,” the man says.
“How can that be your name?” asks the Rabbi.
The man answers, “I’ve been having financial problems, so everything now is in my wife’s name.”
