So, what age do you talk to your kids about what happened on 9/11?
I never thought about that. My oldest kids were in elementary school and my youngest kid was born after.  But it's something that's always been known about/talked about in my house.  In an age-appropriate amount.  Like the Holocaust.  Or the Inquisition. etc.  But this one we have personal memories of.  And know some actual people involved.

Isn't it odd that this is Goggle's image for 9/11? Like no towers etc.

IF and when they ask.

Whenever they learn about it in school

Are you saying never? I honestly don't think any of my kids schools would teach anything about it, nor do I see a need for any Jewish school or Yeshiva to specifically teach anything about it.

BTW, how many people 'round here know it also as כג אלול without looking it up?

Jewish history, at certain ages. I doubt they get to cover even 20th century, let alone 21st.

New law went into effect today here in New York State (just signed yesterday) that every school must have a moment of silence along with a discussion about September 11th. Dont know details.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.
