Generation Sinai creates an appetite for learning

  • KDLSPLeora (Grade 9) Amanda and Dovi (Grade 5) Porter
A huge thumbs-up from the very young, and not-so-young, for Generation Sinai, the highly successful Torah learning project initiated by Chief Rabbi Warren Goldstein some years ago. It is growing from strength to strength.

The connection between parents and children learning Torah together, found wide resonance. This year the emphasis was on the mezuzah - and even grown-ups expressed pleasant surprise at what they could learn - in a fun way. But equally important was the appreciation for parents and children to spend “quality time” together, with Torah learning the universal glue.

The SA Jewish Report asked kids and their parents what Generation Sinai means to them. 

What does it mean to you to be able to do this?
Aiden Kalk (Minnie Bersohn Nursery School): It was lekker to learn together.

Gina David (King David Linksfield grade 5): It was exciting and interesting to learn new stuff together with my mom.

Romi Bravo (mom at King David Linksfield Junior Primary): It was such an amazing experience to be able to teach and share with my children. They are truly privileged to have opportunities like these to enhance their Jewish identity.

Mushka Feinblum (Torah Academy grade 3): It was a “nice” project because we usually don’t get to do this as my parents are busy.

Anonymous (Hirsch Lyons Girls): It was cool to learn with my mom, because I knew more - I got to teach her.

Saul Brest (Sydenham Pre-Primary): You got to spend time with mom and dad. 

Is there a specific memory you will take home from today?
Kelly Pogir (King David Sandton grade 1): I loved my mom watching me daven.

Ricky Cohen (Sydenham Pre-Primary): My dad said I’m the most brilliant child ever!

Dakota Trakman (King David Linksfield grade 4): Me and my family learning Torah together and answering questions together at school, was very special. 

Samantha Friedman (mom at Minnie Bersohn Nursery School): I never went to a Jewish day school and I am proud that my children have that privilege. 

What was it like learning with your child?
Cynthia Reichman (mom at King David Victory Park): There are not enough words to describe the amount of nachas and love one receives when doing and being with grandchildren. I am truly blessed.

Lindi Galaun (mom at King David Sandton): It was very special to spend the quality time together. We are all so busy that this is the perfect excuse to just focus on being together.

Anthony Selikow (dad at King David Victory Park): It was very exciting to learn at school with my child in class to reinforce the importance of Torah at school. 

Is there something special you remember from Generation Sinai in previous years?
Tyler Diamond (King David Linksfield grade 2): That moms and dads spent some time at school.
