    Empowering parents to help their children at home

    Jews have always placed a great emphasis on education and the Jewish tradition regards parents as the ultimate educators.

    Rather than the home being a place where a child is free from study, the Jewish view of the home is that it should be a place where learning continues and where curiosity is nurtured. This idea is clearly pronounced in the words of the Shema prayer which contain the instruction that “you shall teach [the traditions of Judaism] to your children, when you are at home…” (Devarim 6:7).

    However, this is easier said than done, and even when parents want to educate their children or support them with their studies, they may not have the necessary tools to do so.

    This is where digital tools come into their own! From a laptop, tablet or handheld device, a parent can find the knowledge they need and the tools they require to help their child continue their learning at home.

    However, while great resources, educational apps for children and tools were available for most subjects, it was a struggle to find easy to use and age-appropriate online Judaic studies content that would help parents help their children.
