How does a parent bring out a child’s inner convictions? What is the most important goal of a parent? How to be a good parent and a good role model to your child? How to help your child develop a relationship with Hashem?
Welcome to another episode of The Jews Next Dor! We have the real pleasure to talk to Rav Ahron Lopiansky about bringing our children to their full potential and the best parenting practices to achieve that goal.
Harav Ahron Lopiansky is Rosh Yeshiva of the Yeshiva Gedola of Greater Washington. In addition to giving daily shiurim at the Yeshiva, Rav Lopiansky is sought after as an international lecturer and an accomplished author.
His knowledge of the widest array of topics in both Limudei Kodesh and Limudei Chol makes his shiurim all the more inspiring and fascinating. Rav Lopiansky has written a number of seforim in both Hebrew and English as well as a Siddur mefurash.
