Student Entrance Qualifications


"Beit Shammai said: One should only teach a person who is wise, modest, of humble spirit, a child of ancestors and wealthy.

"Beit Hillel said: One should teach everyone, for there were Jewish transgressors, and once they became close to Torah study, pious and righteous people came from them."

(Avot d’Rabbi Natan, additional note to Version I, Chapter 2)

Have a great day,
