Alef- Bet

As we wrapped up our summer learning program my esteemed Rabbi and teacher shared with us the following: “Ladies,” he said, “you are among the most educated of Am Yisrael and among the women of Am Yisrael, all the more so! You spent your vacation time and paid to learn but you can’t keep your Torah to yourself. Go out and teach Am Yisrael.”

I’m among the most educated of the Jewish People?? This frightens me to no end.

The Lubavitcher Rebbe said: If you only know 'alef-bet' and you meet another Jew who only knows 'alef', you must teach him 'bet'. I have worlds of Torah still to learn but I have been taught more than ‘alef’. I am heeding the Rebbe’s call and will do my best to teach 'bet'.
