The psychological aspect of his education can be compared to an educator's attempt to convert a rebellious child to a good student.

The making of Chazot demands the best of both: the wisdom of centuries and the insights of modern science. Since we regularly document his work on video recording, the "Making of Chazot" is an authentic document, immensely educative, greatly inspiring and in some instances, quite entertaining.
