BACH Weekly Newsletter - Even The Pillow From Beneath The Head

BACH Weekly Newsletter

From the Desk of Rabbi Greene

A major problem facing families committed to Jewish education for their children is rising tuition costs. For many, the financial strain is overwhelming.


But we must be steadfast. There is no bigger priority for a parent than to invest in their children’s spiritual welfare. And a good Jewish education is the tool to ensure our success in this area. When the thoughts of compromising the primacy of this mission enter our minds, we should remember the lesson we learn from Hagar when she and her child, Yishmael, ran out of water in the desert. The verse states;


And the water finished from the flask, and she cast the child under one of the shrubs (21:15).


R’ Tronk of Kutno extrapolated: When parents are doing well financially, they give their children the best education. When the money begins to get tight, the children’s education suffers. That was Hagar’s approach. “When the water ran out, she cast her child aside.” That, however is not the way a Jew should act.


As my Rebbe, Rabbi Shlomo Freifeld, would often say: “One must be willing to sell the pillow from beneath their head to ensure the best Jewish education for their children.
