Organizers of an initiative are attempting to increase the number of children participating in a world-wide Birchas Hachama contest.
3,200 children joined to date in “Tzivos Hashem In Action,” COLlive was told.
The effort, headed by a member of the Crown Heights Kollel, is undergoing with permission of the Lubavitch youth group “Tzivos Hashem.”
Targeting children from grades 1 to 8, the campaign promotes broadening their knowledge about Birchas Hachama – the Blessing of the Sun to be recited on Erev Pesach.
On its website – www.birchashachama.biz – “The Mission” is to daven, give Tzedaka, attend their local communal ceremony and sing the Niggunim as customary.
Download the Mission Card (HERE) and email it to BirchasHachamo@gmail.com or fax to 1-732-960-5193.
The raffles will be drawn on April 26, 2009 – Iyar 2, 5769.
