“If you truly wish your children to study Torah, study it yourself in their presence. They will follow your example. Otherwise, they will not themselves study Torah but will simply instruct their children to do so.” –Rabbi Menahem Mendel of Kotzk
At Derech HaLev, we are learning to be present to and for each other. We are learning about putting down our iPhones and raising our eyes and lifting our heart. We are a Jewish community inspired by our Judaism, not limited by her. We are an intimate community, with 2 geographical locations (the Mainline and Huntingdon Valley). We maintain and encourage significant aspirations – to teach our children a confidence, an integrity, a humility, an ability to express themselves, the ability to quiet down, and the ability to be a compassionate presence. We do this, as adults, by focusing upon the very same themes and lessons.
