    If I asked you which 3 values would be most essential for a Jewish Torah observant child to learn what would you respond?

    (Popa, teaching him how to troll is not ESSENTIAL)

    Can’t say what is the 3 most important, but being honest, giving, modest, love for Hashem and the Torah, and proud to be jewish are all really important.

    1) Ahavat yisrael and ahavat kol habriyot/kol yoshvei tevel

    2) The need to constantly be honest and to always make a kiddush hashem, knowing that the goyim are always watching, and most importantly, HaShem is always watching.

    3) Ivdu HaShem be simcha.

    -Hashem LOVES you

    -You are gonna only be compared to yourself

    -Mesillas Yisharim says life is about getting pleasure from Hashem (now the question is how you define pleasure) so as many ppl will say “live by the Torah, don’t kill your self over it” (i.e. make things reeaallly hard for yourself)

    Hashem loves you no matter what and He is always, always there and is proud of all the mitzvos you do everyday.

    IMHO there is only one yesod to chinuch….. Model the behavior you want the child to emulate.

    Create an awareness of HaShem. Make His presence felt in your household, in your life. Make His name constantly on you lips. ?? ???? ???? ????, besides the beneficial blessings that come through that.

    Create a happy, cheerful disposition towards fulfilling HaShem’s mitzvohs, His will. A zestful, enthusiastic attitude, approach towards kiyum mitzvos will last a lifetime!

    A positive outlook, true reverence towards Gedolim, Torah leaders.

    Torah613Torah has it correct. That’s step one.

    next would be clinging to (and having reverence for) gedolim in order to survive these tough times.

    1. To love and serve Hashem with joy.

    2. V’ahavta l’reicha chamocha, and respect for all of Hashem’s creation

    3. A good work ethic (not wasting time, persevering to achieve goals)

    K’vod Hashem

    K’vod haTorah

    K’vod habrios

    If you have the above, you will be honest, hopefully serve Hashem with simcha, have a good work ethic, and all of the above mentioned maalos. And my main motto in life is be nice to everyone – you never know who will end up your mechutan.

    I think for this generation, the important three would be emunah, simcha shel mitzvah and kedusha.
