Perhaps it wasn't that long ago that you learned the importance of keeping Torah. You may not understand it that well yet, and you are trying to study and learn, but your real concern is trying to teach these new concepts to your children. You may not know anyone personally who can help you. Though you may decide to in the future, you aren't in a position where you can change your entire homeschool right now. You just want to make sure they are learning Torah, without a ton of effort.
What if there was a way to get started with teaching Torah to your children, even setting them up to teach themselves, right where you are now?
That's why I created Torah Learning Made Simple. It was born out of my own struggle to get started on this Torah journey, but also make sure my children were learning.
Torah Learning Made Simple can help you with a simple, do-able method for learning Torah principles with your children while working on other school subjects, and you can get started this week.
Right now, you may be struggling with overwhelm. How do I keep Shabbat? What are all these feast days? What am I supposed to eat, and not eat? It's a lot to take in, even if you have been on this Torah journey for awhile. If you were raised differently, and then come to a new understanding, it's a lot to process. I understand. When my husband and I first came to Torah, we felt the same way. We studied and studied, trying to make sense of all these new concepts, but the underlying fear was how to teach all this to our children. To be honest, even though I've been at this awhile, it's easy to get complacent with the spiritual education of my children.
But, imagine having a system to work through teaching Torah to your own children in a flexible and adaptable way, regardless of how much you personally understand of Torah. This system is not a dry, scripted set of lessons to wade through. It's a system that leads to a way of life, a way of looking at what we see and read and come across. I give you the framework and tools, so that you and your children can develop a habit of seeing Torah principles together.
Before I walk you through the details, let me quickly introduce myself.
Torah Learning Made Simple is set up as a quick course to walk you through my Simple Torah teaching system. We'll start with an audio, laying out a step by step framework for learning Torah as a parent, and teaching it to your children. A big obstacle in teaching your children is often feeling like you don't understand it yourself. Thankfully, you can easily learn together as you start out. Once you have the big picture, I'll show you how to reinforce Torah principles during history class. As your children get more proficient in their Torah knowledge, we'll move up to fiction with several worksheets to help them. Older children will greatly benefit from Torah in writing, which includes 5 writing prompts for every Torah portion, totaling 250 prompts!
Do you use a certain Bible translation?
No, this system is completely open-ended and can be used with your choice of Bible translation. I'm not teaching you Torah. I'm teaching you how to teach yourself and your children.
Do I need to buy different school books?
No, this system is designed to help you use the books you already have. Choosing to buy books from a Torah perspective is wonderful, but not required.
Are there age requirements for using this with my children?
Yes, and no. The teaching system is designed to work with the whole family together. With younger children, written assignments should be replaced with verbal conversations or even pictures. Some of the printables, on the other hand, are best suited to children old enough to write independently, perhaps 10 or 11.
Can I return this later?
No, due to the digital nature of this product, I am not offering returns. However, if you need help implementing this in your own family, you are welcome to reach out to me, and I will do what I can to help you.
I've been keeping Torah for awhile. Would this still be helpful to me?
Yes! I have found in my own life that we can get lazy after we've been at something awhile. This system and these printables will be making a fresh appearance in my own homeschool this year to help us keep on track.
Torah Learning Made Simple is primarily for homeschoolers. While those not directly educating their children would still benefit from this system, quite a bit of it is designed to be used alongside school subjects in a homeschool environment.
It is also for families that are seeking to keep Torah and learn more together. It doesn't matter if you learned about keeping Torah yesterday or 15 years ago. If you are struggling at all with making sure your children know, understand, and are living by Torah principles, then this is for you.
