About Tefillin International Academy (TIA)
Tefillin International Academy (TIA) was created with the aim of spreading the Bible recitation learning method “Tefillin Education” to the whole world, which the Jewish people have passed down for over2500 years. Our particular focus is children from the age of 4 to 14, teaching them so they can make the Word of God their standard of value on all things, basing their judgment and actions on the Bible.
Therefore, we educate our students by making them recite the Word of God when they wake up in the morning, sleep at night, walk down the road, so that it will become part of them. When the Word is engraved in the hearts of children and overflows, their character, intelligence, health, and behavior will be prepared, polished and heightened in every aspect. We will nurture future world leaders who will rebuild this world into a God-pleasing “tove” (perfect, beautiful, good) condition.
