Torah kids! 

Outreach ministry that anyone can do, you just have to have a heart for God and help kids learn the commandments of God called Torah. 

Matthew 19:14But Jesus said, "Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven."

Matthew 18:14"Even so it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish.

Matthew 5:19 "Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven

In these last days before the Lord’s soon return thing are going to go from bad to worse.

Little and even bigger kids will be very concerned about what is going on? Why is this happening? The world is being judged for not being Torah observant, for not obeying the instructions of God.

In these trying times we need to get Torah and the blessings from Torah into the little kids and even into bigger kids too. Everyone needs to be Torah observant.

Parents and even those concerned can help this crisis situation by helping all these kids by helping them to learn Torah, the commandments of God. These are found in the first five books of the Bible and it is a major theme throughout the Bible for everyone to keep all the commandments of God.

Yeshua primary ministry doctrine is for everyone to always keep the commandment of God

John 14:15 "If you love Me, keep My commandments. (The Lord’s commandments are called Torah)

What you teach them young stays with them Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.

What to do this late in the times that we are in. Teach them Torah day and night. Explain what Torah is. It is the instructions of God for everyone to live by.

Where to begin? Always teach kids to memorize Torah. The Hebraic perspective is that a person life is like to an empty vessel that needs to fill up with Torah, like pouring the living water of God into a person’s life to always live by.

At each Shabbat we often recite the Shema, Deuteronomy 6:4-5, which Yeshua called the greatest commandment of all.

Memorize the top ten list the first of the ten commandments and explain what it means. We are to learn all the commandments of God and to keep everyone of them.

So important is to teach children how to spot a “false prophet” which is someone who teaches people away from keeping any of the commandments of God. Deuteronomy 13 Everyone needs to fully reject those who teach people away from the need for keeping any of the commandments of God.

Often I see various celebrities, politicians and others on the news and elsewhere who constantly are teaching away from Torah. Some teach for pro gay agenda or rights or teach to be gay tolerant or some other kind of evil that is contrary to having a righteous walk with God which is called being Torah observant. Use those various video clips as examples of what a “false prophet” would say or what their dumb comment is about. Kids can bring in newspaper clippings, a show and tell kind of thing. Be creative.  We are commanded by God to always fully reject false prophets. False prophets are no one to look up to what so ever. So when you watch a TV show or movie, ask kids if the actors were teaching for Torah or not. Drama's and such have good guys and bad guys. It is not necessarily the actor himself that is bad guy, but what the bag guy actor said or portraying that made the actor or actress a bad person. Also teach for a proper discernment and never teach for political correctness.  

Teach for a proper discernment as well. 

John 7:23 "If a man receives circumcision on the Sabbath, so that the law of Moses should not be broken, are you angry with Me because I made a man completely well on the Sabbath?
John 7:24 "Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment."

Avoid hyper legalism. We are commanded to always to be Torah observant. Some sects of Judaism "the Pharisees" which are today's modern Orthodox Jews tend to add their precepts "rules for understanding of Torah" and could not make a right judgments. 

Matthew 12:10 And behold, there was a man who had a withered hand. And they asked Him, saying, "Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?"--that they might accuse Him.
Matthew 12:11 Then He said to them, "What man is there among you who has one sheep, and if it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will not lay hold of it and lift it out?
Matthew 12:12 "Of how much more value then is a man than a sheep? Therefore it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath."
Matthew 12:13 Then He said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." And he stretched it out, and it was restored as whole as the other.
Matthew 12:14 Then the Pharisees went out and plotted against Him, how they might destroy Him.

It is not forbidden in Torah to do a "good deed" on the Sabbaths

The Pharisee then which are the Orthodox Jews of today place their sect of Judaism with its teaching for  "oral traditions" as being equal with Torah. It is not.

Matthew 5:20 "For I say to you, that unless your righteousness (true Torah observance) exceeds the righteousness (Oral traditions teachings) of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven

The Pharisee's then which are today's Orthodox Jews practice extra Biblical practices which in effect has nullified, made void "Gods law" the Torah in their life.  Would you add urine to a nice cold glass of milk?

Deuteronomy 12:32 "Whatever I command you, be careful to observe it; you shall not add to it nor take away from it.


Be sure to teach kids never put anything before Torah. You never put "political correctness" or anything else before Torah ! NEVER !

Never compromise your walk with God. Always instill in kids and everyone the incredible importance of never compromising their Torah walk with God. 


Yeshua when tempted by the devil He only used passages from Torah to rebuke the devil.

Knowing and memorizing Torah is more powerful than any evil or any devil. Our Lord Yeshua is our example to live by.  

Matthew 4  Jesus is tested in the wilderness”

1 Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. 2 After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. 3 The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.”

4 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”  

Deuteronomy 8Deu 8:3"… man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every [word] that proceeds from the mouth of the LORD.

5 Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. 6 “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written: “‘He will command his angels concerning you, and they will lift you up in their hands,    so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.”

7 Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.”

Deut 6:16"You shall not tempt the LORD your God as you tempted Him in Massah.

8 Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. 9 “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.”

10 Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.”

Deuteronomy 6:13"You shall fear the LORD your God and serve Him, and shall take oaths in His name.

11 Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.


The use of Hebraic testing

During the times of Yeshua, little kids were taught Torah from a very early age and usually start with the book of Leviticus. Hebraic testing use to be a very common practice for teaching kids Torah.

Matthew  5:17  "Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. (Teach correctly)

The word fulfill that Jesus used here means to teach the Bible “correctly.” The two words destroy and fulfill, are extremely common phrases that rabbis used back in the day, when teaching kids and others Torah “correctly” and why Jesus used them, to remind them of their childhood Torah school days

The teacher or rabbi would teach in both a positive application and also in a false application. Sort of like flash cards. The kids “students” would respond back to the teacher’s remark  regarding a Torah commandment question or remark made by the teacher, “teach teaches to fulfill Torah” that is to teach Torah correctly or kids would respond back “teacher teaches to destroy Torah” that is to teach Torah incorrectly. You can work out your own appropriate responses i.e., teacher is teaching correctly or teacher is a false or lying. Etc.  The concept is to instill it in their minds as a reflex.

Torah is powerful, it is God breathed. Learn what Torah passages our Lord used for defeating the devil and teach those to your students.

Read Torah, the first five books of the Bible to them day and night. Have them read Torah to you.

Kids are empty vessels that need to fill up with God’s love called Torah, the instructions of God.

Kids are like sponges and enjoy soaking up information and God wants to help you with this. You want them to soaking up on Torah  


Learn the various metaphors for Torah.

Torah is the Way, the Truth and the Life

The Way

Exodus 18:20 "And you shall teach them the statutes and the laws, and show them the way in which they must walk and the work they must do.

Deuteronomy 26:16 "This day the LORD your God commands you to observe these statutes and judgments; therefore you shall be careful to observe them with all your heart and with all your soul.
Deuteronomy 26:17 "Today you have proclaimed the LORD to be your God, and that you will walk in His ways and keep His statutes, His commandments, and His judgments, and that you will obey His voice.
Deuteronomy 26:18 "Also today the LORD has proclaimed you to be His special people, just as He promised you, that you should keep all His commandments,
Deuteronomy 26:19 "and that He will set you high above all nations which He has made, in praise, in name, and in honor, and that you may be a holy people to the LORD your God, just as He has spoken."

The Truth

Psalm 119:142 Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, And Your Torah is truth. ( Righteousness  only means  having a true proper walk with God.  A Torah walk is a righteous walk for everyone to have).

The Life

Proverbs 7:2 Keep my commands and live, And my law as the apple of your eye.

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Proverbs  3:18 She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her, And happy are all who retain her.
Proverbs 11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, And he who wins souls is wise.

Revelation 22:14 Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city.

The light

Proverbs 6:23 For the commandment is a lamp; and the TORAH is LIGHT; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life

Psalm 119:105 Your Torah is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path

Here is printable copy of The Mezuzah: We are commanded to post this on our doors or door posts as a constant reminder of God presence and to remind us to keep all the commandments of God.  Deuteronomy 6:4-9 and Deuteronomy 11:13-12.  The wearing of Tzitzit “tassels” is a commandment. Numbers 15:38-39 "And you shall have the tassel,(blue thread) that you may look upon it and remember all the commandments of the LORD and do them, and that you may not follow the harlotry to which your own heart and your own eyes are inclined,

1John 2:4 He who says, "I know Him," (Yeshua) and does not keep His commandments (God's laws), is a liar, and the truth (Torah) is not in him


Keeping all the Sabbaths of the Lord is so critical, Leviticus 23. 

These are Devine mandatory appointments with God.  You want to be there on the correct day not some covenant time for you!

Teach the kids the importance of keeping all the Sabbaths of the Lord and what they are about.

God will only remember His children by those who keep His Sabbaths. (Leviticus 23, Exodus 31:13, Isaiah 56:3-6 and Isaiah 66:22-23)


If you don’t have a local place to fellowship for a weekly Saturday Sabbath gathering, then start one. Host a Saturday Sabbath gathering for kids, bigger kids and such and start teaching Torah to the kids.

Some fellowships I know are creative and use teaching aids like puppets to teach Torah and Bible songs to the kids. Design a program to get kids to learn how to  be Torah observant. 

1John 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome

Spending time with God is supposed to be an all day event of spending time with God.  Work it as best you can and be creative. Many fellowships have onegs “pot lucks.”  It’s a great way to get to know others at Sabbath gatherings

Remember it’s all things by prayer. Teach kids to always pray and always seek Yeshua for help and guidance in all things

Our Lord and Savior Yeshua would dearly love to help you big time for teaching kids to always be Torah observant.  Yeshua wants kids to know Him and to love him so He can bless them, guide them and be there for them always.

The world is not a kind place and you’re not always able there to be there for them. Yeshua is our watchman who never sleeps wants to be there for them in times of trials and difficulties but you have to know the instructions of God in order for God to guide their lives.

Have a mid week gathering for kids and bigger kids at someone's home. Give a simply homework assignment each time to learn a Torah passage and to memorize it.

Matthew 19:14 But Jesus said, "Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven."
