Mt. Sinai & Israel

Perhaps why many Jewish children discontinue their Hebrew studies after they get Bar/Bat-Mitzvahed is that they get bored in Sunday school and Hebrew school trying to remember and memorize various texts if it is not in Israel. Therefore, it can be more effective and influential to get Bar/Bat-mitzvahed in Israel since Jews do have a significant connection to the Holy Land after G-d spoke to them by Mt. Sinai. I got Bar-mitzvahed in the US, and admit discontinued going to Hebrew school, but less than a decade later, in my college years, I had a newfound attachment to Judaism while attending the Hillel and going to Israel twice, once on Birthright, the second on a tzedek track/social justice mission, and it was all for the best - much better than sitting in a classroom in the US or anywhere other than Israel being lectured about Jewish studies, when it can be much more effective to actually set foot on the land of Israel and learn from their, from site to site - that's haptic learning, where you are literally there where Jewish history really took its course.

Gulp. I have to swallow, & sniff.
My son just turned 12 this past week. My husband is not Jewish, and has made it clear 'they' don't want a 'what Jews do when they turn 13' - I'm not giving up.
You ARE LUCK-Y, Lori to be able to have:
Mazal Tov.
I'm still praying.
I won't give up.
