    In very religious circels it is custom that a boy who learns to read the bible, starts with „Wajikrah“ (3rd book Mozes); surprising dry material for a boy of six years; before the talmudic times, i.e. when the temple was still existing, it were the priests, who could read and explain to the common people the commandments. So the young childs of priestly descent were supposed to learn first of all, about the tasks they would fulfill later on: the details of how and when to sacrifice. In a later stage, when Israel was supposed to be „a holy people,a People of priests“, it became customary to teach the above chapters before all the rest. Israel Yaoz
