Chinuch Hora’ah of the Day:
Surely there is no need to emphasize to someone like him the great importance of chinuch. Chinuch can be compared to caring for a soft seed or sapling. Every improvement and additional nurturing act brings about results that are באין ערוך (of incomparable excellence) once the seed or sapling becomes a fruit-bearing tree. And so too, the opposite, chas ve’shalom.
