The Holiness of Teaching

By Mimi Feigelson

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), September 2007

The author analyzes the relationship between teachers and students as well as the profound responsibility and gift of teaching. The first word in the Torah, "B'reishit," is read in Seder Raba D'Breishit as the acronym of six words that, to the author's understanding, explain the potential and actuality of what transforms teaching into a holy and Godly endeavor.
