Learning together

Around 750 parents, grandparents, and children have participated together in a learning session at Sydney’s Kesser Torah College ahead of Shavuot.

BHS-27The project called Generation Sinai is aimed at connecting the generations in unity in preparation for receiving the Torah on Shavuot.

The program (which originated in South Africa and was developed a few years ago by Chief Rabbi Goldstein), was coordinated in Sydney by BINA (led by Rabbi Michoel Gourarie) in partnership with KTC and its principal Rabbi Noteh Glogauer.

BHS-13The event was spread over three locations on the KTC campus inn Dover Heights.

With material generated by the talented school leadership, everyone engaged in the same topic – “The link from us all the way back to Mt. Sinai.”

One family was represented by four generations studying together: (Liba Joseph (KTC student), Dvora Leah Joseph (mother), Aviva Itkin (grandmother), and Judy Amzalak (great grandmother).

The day was coincidentally the Yartzeit  of Liba’s great great grandfather Mr Moshe Stark who dedicated his life to Jewish education.

These generations coming together were the best way to highlight the eternal Jewish chain and this year’s theme.

    Mr Moshe Stark of Blessed Memory was the President of the Yeshiva.
    He was a person of sterling character, a very from person ,although personally not a Lubavitcher, he subtley nurtured it’s initial growth in Sydney.
    I gained much from his generosity of spirit,his children, grandchildren and great his grand grandchildren continue the golden chain of Torah in Sydney.
    May we meet him again with the revelation of Moshiach soon in our days.
