A Message from Rav Natan
The thing I love most about our Mishmar program is the opportunity to learn together outside of the classroom. I want our students to live and breathe Torah and Judaism, not just in school but in everything they do. Providing opportunities for Torah learning lishma (for its own sake) is an essential part of developing a love for Torah and mitzvot in our students and children, one of our goals here at BMA.
Learning outside the classroom, in a Beit Midrash environment, enables students to develop a relationship with Torah disconnected from school, grades and the structure of their day. Additionally, Mishmar provides a powerful opportunity for parents and children to connect through Torah while the tradition is passed from one generation to the next.
