Messianic Teaching and Activities for Children
by First Fruits of Zion
What is Children’s Torah Club?
First Fruits of Zion presents the Children’s Torah Club as a fun-ﬁlled learning experience for children, ages 6 to 10 years. The Children’s Torah Club, illustrated and produced in Israel, is designed to work in conjunction with the adult Torah Club, or as a stand-alone teaching and activity program for children, with the assistance of parents or teachers. Ideally, as a parent or teacher, you can do your personal studies in Torah Club Volume 1 or 2, and then use what you learned to teach the children. The Children’s Torah Club can also be used by Congregations or Home-schooling groups.
What do you Receive?
A beautiful full-color notebook binder to hold all your lessons/activity booklets. One 8-page booklet for every Torah portion—typically, 4 or 5 such booklets per month, depending on the number of weeks in that month. This is mailed on a monthly basis. A one year subscription to messiah magazine, published 5 times a year. We have a separate offers for congregations and groups.
Learning is Fun!
The CTC booklets contain many different ways of learning. Coloring-in activities, puzzles, word games, questions and answers etc. Most important of all, it is presented in a fun-ﬁlled way because this is the way children learn best! Parents or teachers can provide a simple 15–20 minute lesson from the Parashat Hashavua, and then help the children work through the fun activities and questions, for about 1–1.5 hours. Who knows, the adults might learn some valuable lessons too!
The Children’s Torah Club (CTC) is presented as a weekly activity/study in the form of an 8-page booklet. Each booklet is based on the contents of the weekly Torah portion, and teaches Torah and Torah-based principles from a Messianic perspective, through questions and activities with the help and interaction of parents or teachers. Children need simple activities to help them grasp deeper concepts. CTC will keep your child’s attention and help impart Torah truths. The format is very visual and interactive, with pictures, activities and games. CTC has a complete Hebrew learning track that will enable your child to learn the complete Hebrew alphabet and a simple Hebrew vocabulary.
Typically, each booklet contains basic questions about the Torah portion, activities to teach Torah principles, a Hebrew lesson for every letter in the aleph-bet, and funﬁlled puzzles and games, all related to items from the speciﬁc Torah portion.
Why Teach Torah?
The ﬁrst and greatest commandment in the Torah, known as the Shema, instructs us about our relationship with God and how we should maintain and deepen that relationship. Teaching our children on a daily basis forms part of the foundation of building a strong family in the fear of God, and in the context of being part of the nation of Israel.
“Hear, O Israel: Adonai our God, Adonai is One. And you shall love Adonai your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might. And these words, which I command you this day, shall be upon your heart; and you shall teach them diligently unto your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise up.”
— Devarim 6:4–7
A Journey of Discovery
The Children’s Torah Club provides a way for you to speak about the words of Torah in a consistent way. Help your children on this journey of discovering the ways of Adonai. Train them to understand and follow the annual Torah reading cycle, from Bereshit in the book of Genesis, through to Vezot Habracha, in the book of Deuteronomy. Your children will be proud to learn Torah along with their parents.
The CTC is an ideal way for you to fulﬁl this commandment and enrich your child’s upbringing in a Torah-based way.
