Teaching about Judaism

On Friday, the students from the Al-Farqun Academy came to visit. We explained basic things about Judaism, and we learned a few things about their religion as well. We then went to Habijax, Habitat for Humanity. I had a great time and would love to do it again. It is important to spend time with people of other cultures because as Jewish people, it’s important to be welcoming.

This ties into the verse: “אל תפרש מן הצבור- Do not separate yourself from the community”. You should learn about other religions, and be part of the community. I think it was a great experience for me to learn about their religion a little bit, as well as them learning about ours. I felt excited to teach other people about Judaism. It was a lot of fun to make friends while doing a mitzvah, by cleaning up the Habijax neighborhood.
