Translation by Yehoshua Siskin
"Shalom Sivan, This is Udi Tenne. Three years ago, when my son Yair was in kindergarten we began to learn a daily Mishnah together. This was done from the belief that good habits, especially when ingrained at a very young age, will have a positive influence for years to come. A short time later we were driving and heard a radio program broadcast by yourself and Yedidya. You said that everyone needs a daily commitment so that they have an answer to the question: What's your daily? A daily page of Gemara, a daily Mishnah, a daily halacha. . . and Yedidya said that whoever learns two Mishnahs a day will complete all six orders or divisions of the Mishnah within five years. Yair and I looked at each other and said: Let's do it. We increased our daily commitment to two Mishnayot.
Racheli Shtruli, Yair's teacher, began to make a little party in class each time Yair and I finished a tractate. He had more and more parties, which influenced other children to start learning Mishnah too. This week Yair Tenne, a graduate of second grade in the Segula School in Bnei Brak, finished the entire Order of Zeraim (agricultural laws). The Mishnah includes a total of six orders, and one order is completely behind us now, coinciding exactly with Yair's eighth birthday.
As someone who makes a living as a media consultant, I live from one crisis to the next. I run from client to client, from event to event. I enjoy this chaotic life but our daily study each morning anchors me. With God's help, Yair and I will continue in this commitment and, knowing what daily study has added to our lives, we call out to one and all and ask: What's your daily?"
