Vehigadeta Labincho -- The Obligation of Telling: Implications for Family Work

By Ruben Schindler

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1991

Vehigadeta Labincho (tell your son) - to tell and transmit knowledge and values from generation to generation is a key concept in the Jewish tradition and one that has helped ensure Jewish continuity. Transmission is important in understanding family dynamics as well, as seen in this article's examination of survivors of the Holocaust. When family members cannot fulfill the obligation of Vehigadeta, that responsibility must be assumed by the community.
