Description

This text was prepared by William Gross:

Literacy has always been a primary goal for Jews throughout the Diaspora. Even during he dark ages the knowledge of reading and writing was maintained. The study of the Holy texts was impossible without these skills and such study was the goal of every Jewish male. Education began at an early age. There are many books and single sheets in the Gross Family Collection that are testimony to the efforts made for teaching.
One of the earlier books printed for children's Jewish education - it says that is is suitable for children from 3 years old to 13 - the volume also contains a lengthy explanation of the Mitzvot.
