بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

سُبۡحَـٰنَ ٱلَّذِىٓ أَسۡرَىٰ بِعَبۡدِهِۦ لَيۡلاً۬ مِّنَ ٱلۡمَسۡجِدِ ٱلۡحَرَامِ إِلَى ٱلۡمَسۡجِدِ ٱلۡأَقۡصَا ٱلَّذِى بَـٰرَكۡنَا حَوۡلَهُ ۥ لِنُرِيَهُ ۥ مِنۡ ءَايَـٰتِنَآ‌ۚ إِنَّهُ ۥ هُوَ ٱلسَّمِيعُ ٱلۡبَصِيرُ (١)

وہ (ذات) پاک ہے جو ایک رات اپنے بندے کو مسجدالحرام یعنی (خانہٴ کعبہ) سے مسجد اقصیٰ (یعنی بیت المقدس) تک جس کے گردا گرد ہم نے برکتیں رکھی ہیں لے گیا تاکہ ہم اسے اپنی (قدرت کی) نشانیاں دکھائیں۔ بےشک وہ سننے والا (اور) دیکھنے والا ہے (۱)

Glorified be He Who carried His servant by night from the Inviolable Place of Worship to the Far Distant place of worship the neighbourhood whereof We have blessed, that We might show him of Our tokens! Lo! He, only He, is the Hearer, the Seer. (1)

وَقُلۡنَا مِنۢ بَعۡدِهِۦ لِبَنِىٓ إِسۡرَٲٓءِيلَ ٱسۡكُنُواْ ٱلۡأَرۡضَ فَإِذَا جَآءَ وَعۡدُ ٱلۡأَخِرَةِ جِئۡنَا بِكُمۡ لَفِيفً۬ا (١٠٤) وَبِٱلۡحَقِّ أَنزَلۡنَـٰهُ وَبِٱلۡحَقِّ نَزَلَ‌ۗ وَمَآ أَرۡسَلۡنَـٰكَ إِلَّا مُبَشِّرً۬ا وَنَذِيرً۬ا (١٠٥)

اور اس کے بعد بنی اسرائیل سے کہا کہ تم اس ملک میں رہو سہو۔ پھر جب آخرت کا وعدہ آجائے گا تو ہم تم سب کو جمع کرکے لے آئیں گے (۱۰۴) اور ہم نے اس قرآن کو سچائی کے ساتھ نازل کیا ہے اور وہ سچائی کے ساتھ نازل ہوا اور (اے محمدﷺ) ہم نے تم کو صرف خوشخبری دینے والا اور ڈر سنانے والا بنا کر بھیجا ہے (۱۰۵)

And We said unto the Children of Israel after him: Dwell in the land; but when the promise of the Hereafter cometh to pass We shall bring you as a crowd gathered out of various nations. (104) With truth have We sent it down, and with truth hath it descended. And We have sent thee as naught else save a bearer of good tidings and a warner. (105)

history of the IsraeliPalestinian conflict began with the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948. This conflict came from the intercommunal violence in Mandatory Palestine between Israelis and Arabs from 1920 and erupted into full-scale hostilities in the 1947–48 civil war.

Now The Israel is the only Jewish majority and explicitly Jewish state. Jewish population figures for the United States are contested, ranging between 5.7 and 6.8 million. (The core global total of Jews jumps above 15 million if the highest American estimates are assumed). What are the reasons why they are controlling our world? International Banking System, Global Media and World’s top corporations belong to them, What is the recipe behind this small nation, why the God has blessed them so much and why not us (Muslims). Although we have given treasures of Patrol and Minerals but they are the one who are helping us in exploring, rigging and refining etc and how to use it in vehicles for transportation.

What are the differences in between us and them? What are we missing which they are following? We have to find out to learn how they are upbringing their kids? What are their Parenting Principles? In which atmosphere they are raising their kids? How they are taught to be a leader and Business Tycoon in youth while upbringing. They are raising their kids with this ideology.

A Jew pregnant mother raise her voice loudly to solve mathematical question to teach her child in the womb, she enjoy the good music, very pleasant atmosphere, healthy balanced diet, intensive care from family, all this help in the birth of a healthy baby with a health mind. They learn to be a marcher from the childhood, the kids learn to be focused and how to gain concentration, it will help in sharp decision making in life ahead.

Our Holy Prophet PBUH has instructed to Muslim Parents to teach their children 3 subjects, First taught them to be a Swimmer, Second Marcher and Third Horse Rider. Jews has adopted this advice and are beneficial and their kids are growing smart. All the World’s top and largest companies’ like Amazon, Facebook, Microsoft, Apple, Alibaba, and HP etc., have established their research centers in Israel, Every Home is using their products, even you are reading this Article weather on PC or Laptop or IPad or on Mobile via Internet, all these Technologies are made by them. Cyber Security is one of the most important technologies; any educated person may easily foresee that the next war will be a operated by Computers using Cyber Warfare Technologies. Israel has possessed the World’s Top Leading Cyber Security Technologies.

  Have you ever ponder into your character building as Pakistani Nation or Muslim Community? We have become such a rotten community even we do not regret on it! Sorry to say that now we do not possess even 1% of The Morel Ethics and Honesty in this World…
Low Weigh, Debasement, False Witness, False FIR, Use of Narcotics and Alcohol, Vandalism, Discrimination In Rich And Poor, Rape, Sexual Harassment, Illegal Ammunition, Armed Robberies, Theft, Murder, Illegal Government And Public Land Grabbing, Illegal Stocks, Kidnap-for-Ransom, Illiteracy, Banking Interest, Timber Mafia, Artificial Inflation, Black Marketing. Dirty Milk, Fake Medicines, Fake Passports, Fake Visas, Fake Sects, Dirty Water Injection In Mutton, Doctors Goes In Strikes…

Find out from any European about Mixing in Milk or Debasement in Medicines or Food Items, they will not understand you! Even they cannot think of Debasement the act of devil may perform by humans! By Debasement we are killing our next generation. Our Students are misbehaving with their Teachers. We are having Top Position in Searching Pornography and Nudity on Google. We should be ashamed off ourselves. We are lazy to work on the false excuses of Fasting and Prayers. Tasbehs made of Marijuana’s Drug. We are Selling Hajj, Doing Smuggling in the Name of Umrah. We are used to live in Dirty Atmosphere and we make our place messy by strewing garbage around. While cleanness is declare half of our faith, look around our Streets, Parks, Roads, Cities… you won’t see them clean.
Our religion thought us that who does Debasement he is not from us, who does Stocks and cause Inflation he is not from us, who less weigh he is not from us, Are we belong to our Religion? Unfortunately not at all! We have been corrupt as a Nation from Top Government officials to a Peon in a private office. Where we stand in Ethical values? We have become such a low value nation that our poor labor may Kidnapped, his Kidney get stolen and thrown on the road, Do have some Fear of God and Day of Judgment. We are involved in selling our young girls, sexually abusing and murdering our kids and selling their porn videos and running human body parts business.


How can we perceive this that we are ethically batter than western Nations? No, certainly we are not. I am not under any obligation to praise the West; I am not having any personal benefit from them. We are so senseless, If someone has achieved any good quality, why don’t we appreciate it. Ask yourself, have we contributed anything for the goodness of the people of this world where we are living.

We have become Hypocrites, now the whole Pakistani Nation is facing this punishment. We have become the worst Hypocrites Nation of the World. We are no more the Nation like we were in 1940 – 1947. Now there are many types of Hypocrisies among us. We have divided in to dogmatism, Provincial Nationalism, Sects and Castes etc. That is why till today we have not been agreed to build Kalabagh Dam as a Nation. Who does not know that how important was this dam for our energy and economy requirements? But it was not acceptable to Sindhis nor Pashtoons, since we are no more a Nation but Provincial Nationals, Sects and Castes etc.
The Holy Prophet PBUS narrated that there are there signs of a Hypocrite, One: he always tells a lie, Tow: he never fulfil his promises, Three: He does Embezzlement and Betray Trust Deals. Look in to our society all these there signs are common, you will find the more important personalities are big liar, never fulfil promises and they Betray their Trust Deals. Such Hypocrites have become our rulers due to our own misbehaves. This ill character has become introduction of our Nation. Now we are having corruption in Billions of Dollars and on the other hands our Nation is under debts of Billions of Dollars of IMF. Do we have a right to be a free Nation? We have lost the Justification since we are a Failed State. We have lost our ideology; we have not gotten the freedom of Pakistan on the name of Nationalism.

What are the reasons behind their success? Israel deployed very young creative minds to learn hacking. Most of the percentage of Israeli students is getting bachelor degrees among other countries. Their aim to get a degree to be a successful businessman and leader While our students are focused to get degrees to get a good job and get married. As our student are required to submit their assignments and thesis for their degree programs, a Jew student has to setup his own Business and have to show earning of minimum Profit of US Dollar 10,000 to obtain his/her degree.

What standard of degree do we offer to our youth? You may buy any degree from Rs 500,000. Even Higher Education Commission of Pakistan has stop sponsoring scholarships for sharp students for their higher studies. Our government is spending about 1.5 – 2.0% of our budget on Education, if we divide this on total population it remain only hardly Rs 0.50 per person, with this small amount you can’t buy Toffee how one can afford  a good Education? Can you compare Israel Standards of degree with yours?


They offered degree on setting up a profitable business while we are selling degrees and our students are cheating in exams, in Sindh province the teachers are help students to cheat. If you want to destroy a Nation, attack on its education system. The Nation will destroy automatically. There will be all-around duplicate doctors, engineers and other professionals and the country will be in losses due to collapse of buildings, bridges and other infrastructures. Duplicate lawyers will lose the cases and the Nation will face the downfall.

Public commemoration of Yom HaShoah usually includes religious elements such as the recitation of Psalms, memorial prayers, and kaddish, and the lighting of memorial candles. In Israel, the most notable observances are the State memorial ceremony at Yad Vashem and the sirens marking off a two-minute silence at 10:00 am. Religious Zionist and Modern Orthodox Jews generally participate in such public observances along with secular Jews and Jews who adhere to more liberal religious movements. Outside Israel, Jewish communities observe Yom HaShoah in addition to or instead of their countries' Holocaust Memorial Days. Probably the most notable commemoration is the March of the Living, held at the site of Auschwitz-Birkenau, attended by Jews from all parts of the world.

Outside Orthodoxy, a liturgy for Yom HaShoah is beginning to develop. The Conservative, Reform and Reconstructionist prayer books all include liturgical elements for Yom HaShoah, to be added to the regular weekday prayers. Conservative Judaism has written a scroll, called Megillat HaShoah, intended to become a definitive liturgical reading for Yom HaShoah The Orthodox world–even the segment that participates publicly in Yom HaShoah–has been reluctant to write a liturgy for the day, preferring to compose Kinnot (prayers of lamentation) for recitation on Tisha B'Av.

In order to ensure that public Yom HaShoah ceremonies in Israel do not violate Shabbat prohibitions, the date for Yom HaShoah varies as follows:

If 27 Nisan occurs on a Friday, the observance of Yom HaShoah is advanced to the previous day (Thursday, 26 Nisan).

If 27 Nisan occurs on a Sunday, the observance of Yom HaShoah is delayed to the following day (Monday, 28 Nisan).

2.    Yom Hazikaron—Memorial Day
Yom Hazikaron: (nominally) 4 Iyara
Yom Hazikaron "Memorial Day" is a day of remembrance of the fallen of Israel's wars. During the first years of Israel's independence, this remembrance was observed on Yom Ha'atzmaut (Independence Day) itself. However, by 1951, the memorial observance was separated from the festive celebration of Independence Day and moved to its current date, the day before Yom Ha'atzmaut. Since 2000, the scope of the memorial has expanded to include civilians slain by acts of hostile terrorism. Its full name is now "Day of Remembrance for the Fallen of the Battles of Israel and the Victims of Terror".Places of public entertainment are closed throughout Israel in recognition of the day. Many schools, businesses and other institutions conduct memorial services on this day, and it is customary to visit the graves of fallen soldiers and to recite memorial prayers there. The principal public observances are the evening opening ceremony at the Western Wall and the morning services of remembrance at military cemeteries throughout the country, each opened by the sounding of sirens. The public observances conclude with the service at the military cemetery on Mount Herzl that serves as the transition to Yom Ha'atzmaut.

Outside Israel, Yom HaZikaron observances are often folded into Yom Ha'atzmaut celebrations. Within Israel, Yom Hazikaron is always the day before Yom Ha'atzmaut, but that date moves to prevent violation of Sabbath prohibitions during the ceremonies of either day. See following section for details.

3.    Yom Ha'atzmaut—Israel Independence Day
Yom Ha'atzmaut: (nominally) 5 Iyar
Yom Ha'atzmaut is Israel's Independence Day. Observance of this day by Jews inside and outside Israel is widespread, and varies in tone from secular (military parades and barbecues) to religious (recitation of Hallel and new liturgies).

Although Israel's independence was declared on a Friday, the Chief Rabbinate has long been mindful of the possibility of Yom Ha'atzmaut (and Yom Hazikaron) observances leading to violation of Sabbath prohibitions. To prevent such violations, the dates of Yom Hazikaron and Yom Ha'atzmaut vary as follows:

If 4–5 Iyar occur on a Sunday-Monday, the observances are delayed to Monday-Tuesday, 5–6 Iyar.

If 4–5 Iyar occur on a Tuesday-Wednesday, the observances are not moved.

If 4–5 Iyar occur on a Thursday-Friday, the observances are advanced to Wednesday-Thursday, 3–4 Iyar.

If 4–5 Iyar occur on a Friday-Shabbat, the observances are advanced to Wednesday-Thursday, 2–3 Iyar.

Nearly all non-ḥaredi Jewish religious communities have incorporated changes or enhancements to the liturgy in honor of Yom Ha'atzmaut and suspend the mourning practices of the period of Sefirat Ha'Omer. (See Yom Ha'atzmaut—Religious Customs for details.) Within the Religious Zionist and Modern Orthodox communities, these changes are not without controversy, and customs continue to evolve.

Ḥaredi religious observance of Yom Ha'atzmaut varies widely. A few ḥaredim (especially Sefardic Ḥaredim) celebrate the day in a reasonably similar way to the way non-ḥaredim do. Most ḥaredim simply treat the day indifferently; i.e., as a regular day. And finally others (notably Satmar Ḥasidim and Neturei Karta) mourn on the day because of their opposition to the enterprise of the State of Israel.

4.    Yom Yerushalayim—Jerusalem Day
Yom Yerushalayim: 28 Iyar
Jerusalem Day marks the 1967 reunification of Jerusalem under Israeli control during the Six-Day War. This marked the first time in 19 years that the Temple Mount was accessible to Jews, and the first time since the destruction of the Second Temple 1900 years earlier that the Temple Mount was under Jewish political control.

As with Yom Ha'atzmaut, celebrations of Yom Yerushalayim range from completely secular (including hikes to Jerusalem and a large parade through downtown Jerusalem) to religious (recitation of Hallel and new liturgies). Although Haredim do not participate in the liturgical changes, they are somewhat more likely to celebrate Yom Yerushalayim than the other modern Israeli holidays because of the importance of the liberation of the Western Wall and the Old City of Jerusalem.

Outside Israel, observance of Yom Yerushalayim is widespread, especially in Orthodox circles. It has not gained as widespread acceptance as Yom Ha'atzmaut, especially among more politically liberal Jews, because of the continuing conflicts over the future of the city.

Yom Yerushalayim has not traditionally moved to avoid Shabbat desecration, although in 2012 the Chief Rabbinate began some efforts in that direction.

Yom HaAliyah—Aliyah Day
Yom HaAliyah: 10 Nisan

Joshua passing the River Jordan with the Ark of the Covenant by Benjamin West Aliyah Day is an Israeli national holiday celebrated annually on the tenth of Nisan. The day was established to acknowledge Aliyah, immigration to the Jewish state, as a core value of the State of Israel, and honor the ongoing contributions of Olim (immigrants) to Israeli society.

Immigration to Israel is a recognized religious value of Judaism, sometimes referred to as the Gathering of Israel. The date chosen for Yom HaAliyah, 10 Nisan, has religious significance: it is the day on which Joshua and the Israelites crossed the Jordan River at Gilgal into the Promised Land. It was thus the first documented "mass Aliyah". The alternative date observed in the school system, 7 Heshvan, falls during the week of the Torah portion in which God instructs Abraham to leave his home and his family and go up to the Land of Israel.

At the present time, observance of this day appears to be secular in nature.

5.    Yom HaAliyah—Aliyah Day
Day to Mark the Departure and Expulsion of Jews from the Arab Countries and Iran: 30 November (on the Gregorian calendar)

The Knesset established this observance in 2014. The purpose of this observance is to recognize the collective trauma of Mizrahi Jews during the period around the establishment of the State of Israel. Many Mizrachi Jews felt that their own suffering was being ignored, both in comparison to the suffering of European Jewry during the Holocaust and in comparison to the Palestinian Nakba. The Gregorian-calendar date chosen is the day after the United Nations Partition Plan for Palestine was adopted, as that date marked the beginning of concentrated pressure and hostility against the community.

At the present time, observance of this day appears to be secular in nature.

6.    Day to commemorate the expulsion of Jews from Arab lands and Iran
Day to Mark the Departure and Expulsion of Jews from the Arab Countries and Iran: 30 November (on the Gregorian calendar)

The Knesset established this observance in 2014. The purpose of this observance is to recognize the collective trauma of Mizrahi Jews during the period around the establishment of the State of Israel. Many Mizrachi Jews felt that their own suffering was being ignored, both in comparison to the suffering of European Jewry during the Holocaust and in comparison to the Palestinian Nakba. The Gregorian-calendar date chosen is the day after the United Nations Partition Plan for Palestine was adopted, as that date marked the beginning of concentrated pressure and hostility against the community.[90]

At the present time, observance of this day appears to be secular in nature.

7.    Ethnic holidays
The Israeli government officially recognizes three traditional holidays of ethnic Jewish communities in Israel. These days are also observed by their respective communities outside Israel.

Mimouna began as a holiday of Moroccan Jews, while similar celebrations also exist among Turkish Jews and Persian Jews.[91] These festivals are observed on the day after Passover, when eating of ordinary food ("chametz") resumes. In Israel, observance of Mimouna has spread widely in recent years; it has been estimated that up to two million Jews in Israel now participate in Mimouna celebrations.

On the evening concluding Passover,[Note 34] the celebration centers on visiting the homes of friends and neighbors, Jewish and non-Jewish. A variety of traditional foods are served, and symbols representing good luck and prosperity are prominently displayed. The next day, barbecues and picnics are among the most widespread activities of the celebration.[93]

The Seharane was celebrated by Kurdish Jews as a multi-day nature festival starting the day after Passover. Communities would leave their villages and camp out for several days, celebrating with eating and drinking, nature walks, singing and dancing.

Its observance was interrupted after the relocation of this community to Israel in the 1950s. In recent years it has been revived. But because of the already-widespread celebration of Mimouna in Israel, the celebration of the Seharane was moved to Chol HaMoed Sukkot.

The Sigd began as an evolution of the observance of Yom Kippur by the Beta Israel (Ethiopian) community. Currently that community now observes it in addition to Yom Kippur; its date is 29 Heshvan, 49 days after Yom Kippur. It shares some features of Yom Kippur, Shavuot, and other holidays.

The Sigd is modeled on a ceremony of fasting, study and prayer described in Nehemiah 8, when the Jews rededicated themselves to religious observance on return to Israel after the Babylonian exile. In Ethiopia, the community would gather on a mountaintop and pray for a return to Jerusalem. The modern Sigd is centered on a promenade overlooking the Old City of Jerusalem. The day's observance ends with a celebratory break fast

What are the 7 Jewish parenting principles?

1. Parenting Is a Partnership

“There are three partners in the making of man: the father, the mother and G‑d.” (Kiddushin, 30b)

G‑d is a partner in this parenting endeavor. We can, and dare I say, must, rely on Divine assistance because quite frankly, this task is at times (if not at all times) beyond our human capacity. But, as the Midrash attests, G‑d does not make excessive demands of us. If He gave us these children, it means that they are the perfect match for us and we for them—hard as it may be to believe at times! But don’t despair because this also means that it’s not all up to us! We may love to shep nachas, but truthfully, we cannot take full credit for the outcome of parenting.

2. Capitalize on Core Competencies

“Educate the child according to his way and when he’s old he will not depart from it ... ” (Proverbs 22:6)

G‑d has given each of our children unique personalities, strengths and weaknesses. We must recognize and respect our children’s individuality. The inherent way of a child—his or her G‑d-given traits—should not be suppressed by parents. Rather, we should cultivate them to the fullest, bearing in mind that negative traits should be channeled positively.

In addition, the sages explain that children must be trained in self-discipline—to set boundaries and change their habitual natures until they attain sovereignty of mind over heart (Tanya, Chapter 12). Living a life that is guided by the framework of Torah law provides plenty of opportunities to exercise mindfulness over impulse and hone this ability.

3. Compliance Remains Key

“Honor your father and your mother, so that your days should be lengthened.” (Exodus 20:12)

If your children exhibit chutzpah sometimes, then you’re in good company. Children are not naturally inclined to treat their parents with respect; hence, the need for the Fifth Commandment, which by the way, is about behavior, not feeling. It’s inclusion as one of the “Big Ten” suggests that rude children are nothing new. But it also teaches us how to prevent them from turning into self-absorbed, thoughtless adults.

Jewish psychologist and parenting expert Wendy Mogel points out in The Blessing of a Skinned Knee that children “will only accept your guidance and heed your advice if they respect you. ... If you don’t teach your children to honor you, you’ll have a very hard time teaching them anything else.” By honoring their parents, children will be more likely to respect authority, the older generation, and in turn, make the leap from family to community. Their reward will thus be length in days to contribute to this world.

4. Hedge With Love

“The right hand draws near and the left hand pushes away.” (Sanhedrin, 107 b)

King Solomon warned “one who withholds his rod, despises his child,” (Mishlei 13:24). Yet as naturally loving parents, we often wonder: How much discipline and how to discipline? We do it with the less dominant hand—“the left hand.”

Our sages emphasize numerous times that “the left hand pushes away.” Discipline should be implemented rarely, and we can influence our children more if we approach them b’darchei noam—pleasantly and peacefully. The Rambam advises that it is best to take the middle path, and in his parting letter to his children heed them to always “consider what you are going to say before letting the words escape.” Yes, that does suggest that we parents should stop yelling (present company included).

Jewish psychologists and parenting experts recommend keeping ratios in mind to help us apply the aforementioned statement from the Talmud. Sarah Chanah Radcliffe suggest an 80:20 ratio of positive to negative interactions with our children (and our spouses) and 90:10 for teenagers. Rabbi Dr. Avraham Twerski recommends a 70:30 ratio. Dr. MiriamAdahan suggests “one-third love, one-third law and one-third sitting on your hands (i.e., turn a blind eye).” Whatever ratio works for you and your individual child, the message is clear: Temper the discipline with a heavy dose of love.

5. Stick to the Fundamentals

“The soul of man is a candle of G‑d.” (Proverbs 20:27)

A Jewish child has a soul that “is truly a part of G‑d above” (Tanya, Chapter 2). Focus on this fundamental part of your child and see the good inherent in them. Moreover, just like when we hold a candle near a large flame it will be attracted to the larger flame, our souls are attracted to its Divine Source. When we train our children in the observance of mitzvot, we afford them the opportunity for their souls to shine overtly.

Many mothers add one Shabbat candle for each of their children. Teach your children that the world is brighter because of their existence. Imbue in them the understanding that they are a “light unto the nations.” (Isaiah 42:6)

6. Be a Mentor

“For I know him, that he will instruct his children and his household after him, so that they will keep the path of G‑d, to do righteousness and justice.” (Bereishit 18:19)

We are our children’s teachers of right and wrong, based on the Divine blueprint set for humankind: the Torah. Perhaps this is best seen in the connection between the Hebrew words: “parent” (horim), “teacher” (moreh), “instruction” (horah). How we want them to live, we must first model.

The Talmud lists religious teachings, as well as universal teachings of a very practical nature, which we must impart on our children. The obligation to find them a spouse also means educating them to become emotionally mature adults, equipped to maintain familial relationships. Teaching our children a profession means providing them with the practical skills necessary to survive and succeed in life. Aside from the life-saving component, the obligation to teach our children how to swim also means teaching them the skills necessary to swim amid the risks and challenges inherent in life’s murky waters. But once we’ve taught them how, we can’t swim for them!

7. Take Risks

“Lech Lecha” (Genesis 12:1)

“Go forth!” G‑d told Avraham when it was time for him to leave his father’s land and venture out into the unknown. This phrase, which literally means “go to yourself,” teaches us that the capabilities to go are precisely within ourselves. In order for our children to learn confidence in their abilities to triumph over life’s challenges, we must allow them to venture out into the world and work things out on their own.

In the process, we must be mindful to praise and encourage their efforts over talents. “Man was created to toil” (Job 5:7). Toil, not produce. As Rabbi Tarfon says, “You are not required to complete the task, yet you are not free to withdraw from it” (Ethics of Our Fathers 2:21). When we encourage effort, we foster what Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck refers to as a “growth mindset,” which results in more patience, and a willingness to take risks and experiment with different tasks.

When our children are being rambunctious, we wish them to be angels. Yet angels are standing, stagnant beings—omdim, who don’t grow or move (Zechariah 3:7). Humans (a.k.a. our rambunctiously active kids) are holchim (“movers”). Unlike the angels, they climb levels and can reach higher. They can fall and can get up again. Let them move, let them swim, let them grow!
