Mishpacha Junior Speaks to a Shatnez Tester

C S Teitelbaum

Winter is here! Foggy morning scenes are visible from behind frosty windowpanes. Out come the fur hats and scarves ’n mittens so that crunching through those icy leaves will be a fun and cosy adventure. Just before we wrap ourselves in those woolies, let’s delve into an important subject about wool: the mitzvah of shatnez. Mishpacha Junior takes a peek behind the microscopic lens to bring you the all-important facts about this special mitzvah.

 

On the Right Derech

Leah Dolinger

Hi! It’s me — Dovi. My rebbi, Rabbi Wikler, said that there’s a difference between the Kavod and Yirah (the Honor and Awe) we have to show to our parents and our Torah teachers and the respect and politeness we have to show other people. Our parents and those who teach us the Torah way of life are those who give us life in Olam HaZeh (This World) and Olam HaBa (World to Come), and for this reason they are “in a class by themselves.”
