For the Kids


Matters of the Heart

In this week's Torah portion, Re'eh, we are yet again told not to forget the needy. The Torah just can't stop repeating this message. This time it uses the words "do not harden your heart." Pharoah also hardened his heart. He gets so used to hardening his heart, that, at some point, it becomes the only reaction he can have.

Can you think of a time when you "hardened your heart" and refused to give in or help someone? The Torah says: Do not do this too often, for it will become a habit that might be hard to break.
