Kitvei HaRav Kook 4

Comparing Jewish and Western Views of Childhood and Education - Part II

Rav Kook examines why young people are especially idealistic, and how the goal is not to become “adulterated” and lose that idealism with age. Every society has a measuring stick: primitive man measured by one’s strength, western man- by his money or prestige. Accordingly, women and children are second-class. Judaism measures by one’s Godliness, and accordingly women and children rate especially high.
