Judaism values life long Jewish learning. In the Mishna it states:
"Leave home and go to a place of Torah. Don't say the Torah will come to you or that your companions will make it yours. Don't depend on your own understanding." (Pirke Avot 4:4)
The Torah is called- Etz Chaim-- The Tree of Life. Torah nurtures and sustains us. As we grow into adulthood, our thirst for knowledge grows and changes. Our Torah and our tradition can be the root of our lives, grounding us and drawing us closer to our community, our family, and ourselves.
