You're looking at a photo of a father reading the Torah with his son using a "yad" (pointer), and quite likely also teaching him how to read it. I deeply admire this aspect of the Jewish culture and way of life, especially now as I start to learn how best to teach and guide my own son.
"Place these words on your hearts. Get them deep inside you. Tie them on your hands and foreheads as a reminder. Teach them to your children." Deuteronomy 11:18-19a (MSG)
