Shelo Asani Isha

A Light Unto The Nations

After seeing a clip with John Kasich in Boro Park, NY as he was speaking to some yeshiva students, it demonstrated to me that we don't teach our children how to properly respond to questions. Kasich asked what the students were learning. They didn't seem to able to respond. As students of the Talmud, they should have been able to encapsulate a small teaching thus showing the beauty of studying the Torah. Imagine what would have happened if they explained, in a cogent manner, one of the intricate questions of Shabbat, the tractate in which they were studying. Or if they would have responded to his statements on the Torah, not as a point of contention or debate, but just presenting, as a matter of fact, what was really behind the story. Our Written & Oral Torah have so much wisdom and when we are asked a question, we have a great opportunity to educate and make a kiddush Hashem-a sanctification of Hashem's name. But, alas, it seems as if educating mankind about Hashem's Torah and laws are not important. Worst of all, when we don't know how to answer the question, it makes it appear that we have no answer, the ultimate chillul Hashem-desecration of Hashem's name. Let's be a light unto the nations and train ourselves as how to properly answer the questions and show the world why we are Hashem's Am Segulah- treasured nation.
