Kehot released a new book titled, “The Educator’s Privilege.” It is a special tribute to teachers and educators. The significance of Jewish education and the privilege of engaging in the educational calling.
It is said that a teacher affects eternity, for his influence will last forever.
In The Educator’s Privilege, just released by Kehot Publication Society, educators are treated to a wealth of uplifting inspirational messages from the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of blessed memory, on the privileges of dedicating one’s life to the higher calling of Jewish education.
During his more than forty years of leadership of Chabad-Lubavitch, the Rebbe explored a vast array of educational concerns that underlined the place of Jewish education at the forefront of Chabad’s program. The Rebbe’s teachings provided encouragement and reinvigoration to those serving as educators, and inspired many others to engage in educational activity, whether in the role of a teacher, parent, or supporter of institutions of authentic Jewish education. Today we are fortunate to be in possession of several thousand articles of educational correspondence as well as transcripts of talks by the Rebbe on educational concepts.
The present compilation of succinct citations drawn from the Rebbe’s writings and addresses on the role of the educator, collected by noted scholar and author Rabbi Eli Friedman of Safed , Israel, and translated by Rabbi Aryeh Solomon of Sydney, Australia, also offers a glimpse into the inspiration behind the far-reaching educational infrastructure of the world-wide Chabad-Lubavitch movement.
“Rabbi Friedman has successfully woven a tapestry of the Rebbe’s vast body of work on the privilege of serving in the field of Jewish Education. The Educator’s Privilege will no doubt inspire a new generation of Torah educators. The world of education will be the richer and educators all the more motivated and energized, due to this work,” says Rabbi Nochem Kaplan, director of Merkos L’inyonei Chinuch’s department of Education.
