Ami Neuman replied to Josh Grajower's discussion Differentiated Instruction for Gemara Chavrusa Time in the group Teaching Gemara

Ami Neuman replied to Kenny Schiowtz's discussion Davening
"Just to clarify: Do kids believe that talking during davening is a lack of respect for the Divine or do they see it as a lack of respect for their peers/rebbeim/parents who want to daven without interruptions? If it's the former, do we teach…"
