“Engage in some Jewish study on a daily or weekly basis. Make sure you extract something from your next study session that has an impact on your daily behavior.” (Rabbi Joseph Telushkin).
Jews are the original “lifelong learners.” According to some commentators Jews converse with God in two ways – prayer and study. When we pray, we talk to God. When we study, God talks to us. It is never too late to start studying.
