Jacob Gebhart ('23)

Parshat Ponders

In this parsha, Vayelech, Moses tells Joshua that it is his responsibility to inform the nation that they need to teach their children the word of G-d. There is a lot of passing down the torch.

Moses to Joshua, Joshua to the nation, then on to the future generations. It is very important to let others prove themselves. Giving others the opportunity to thrive is important. You can’t thrive if you’re never given the opportunity. We apply this lesson to our Buddies program at Levine by helping younger students thrive in a Jewish environment from a young age.
