Industrial Training

In Israel, industrial training was regarded as a duty. Every father was required to teach his sons some useful trade. The greatest men in Israel were trained to industrial pursuits. A knowledge of the duties pertaining to housewifery was considered essential for every woman. And skill in these duties was regarded as an honor to women of the highest station. MH 185.3

Various industries were taught in the schools of the prophets, and many of the students sustained themselves by manual labor. MH 186.1
