by Yated Ne'eman Staff

Rabbi Noach Orlowek will be the guest speaker at a Chizuk Hatorah Weekend on 28th-30th July sponsored by Kollel Beth Hatalmud Yehudah Fishman Institute in Melbourne Australia. The weekend will be held at the Cumberland Hotel in picturesque Marysville in country Victoria.

The theme of the weekend is "Protecting Roses Amongst the Thorns." Rabbi Orlowek will talk on themes such as raising a mentsch in the 21st century, communicating within the family, and the Ten Commandments of parenting.

Rabbi Noach Orlowek is a renowned educator and lecturer whose books of Torah-based discipline in the classroom and home have become classics. He is the author of the books My Disciple My Child, and My Child My Disciple. He is a member of the faculty of Yeshiva Torah Ohr in Yerushalayim. He also teaches at other institutions across Israel, including Aish Hatorah and many seminaries.

Rabbi Orlowek has lectured in many communities in South Africa, Europe and the United States. He has an outstanding reputation in the areas of education, sholom bayis and parenting. Rabbi Orlowek will also be speaking to parents on July 30th at 8p.m. at the Kollel Beth Hatalmud on the topic "Is the Sky the Limit -- Setting Limits for Ourselves and Children." He will also be speaking at The Adass-Gutnick hall on July 31st at 8 p.m. on the topic, "Building Bridges to Our Children." That function is hosted by Yad Yocheved, and admission is $7.

A teachers' seminar will be held at Caulfield Shule hall on July 27th and will be divided into two sessions in which two topical educational issues will be discussed.

The first session is entitled "Yiras Shomayim: How to get Students To Enjoy Their Learning And Davening (prayer)." This topic is constantly on the mind of teachers and heads of Jewish studies: how to ensure not only that students will learn and pray, but that they will actually enjoy it and continue doing so for the rest of their lives.

The second session will be devoted to the topic: "How To Maintain Discipline While Still Maintaining a Warm Relationship." It is generally recognized that one of the critical requirements for success in today's age in the development of the Jewishness of a child is a warm relationship with the teacher. However it becomes hard to balance the discipline required in a classroom atmosphere with the warm relationship that is also so necessary. A question and answer session will follow with teachers able to raise their own day-to-day concerns.

In Sydney Rabbi Orlowek will be a guest of the Chinuch Foundation headed by Rabbi Michoel Gurarie and will be giving shiurim and talks to the community on July 25th and 26th.
