    Actually we had a banner year here too, where FOUR (that’s a lot in these parts;) babies were born to local “MUMS”.
    Here the goyim bring thier animals to be bless in St. Pats Catherdral Lehavdil.

    This shul is a flagship United synagogue shul, and this is a peulo to bring young family’s and get them involved. it does not mean that b/c he is a Lubavitcher he is making new minhogim. its the same as many shluchim singing moez tzur on chanukah.

    This is just Amazing!

    WoW! What a Kiddush Hashem!
    So many happy faces, and in Shul!
    You are raising your community’s children well,
    They will be the ‘heim hikiroohoo t’chiloh’!
    Rabbi Schochet, you have just made my day.
    It’s cold outside, but you have shone intense warmth.
    Just look at all those people coming to Shul
    And, on a weekday, NOCH!
    This is just incredible,
    And so are you and your family!
    Happy Chanukah to all!!!!!
    And to the ‘nay-sayer’; Happy poor-him!

    This is a shining example of creative programming, directed “b’ofen hamiskabel.” I love the tie-in with chinuch, as well. You and your program are a dugma chaya that others (wherever it’s shayach) should copy!

    i think he does do bircas habonim Friday night — The Rebbe did it to him in Yechidas when he was a little kid — ask him for the story….

    special minhag

    birchas habonim on friday nights is a most beautiful minhag – to my humble opinion every lubavitcher should take upon himself this minhag

    There are people that keep adding a new chumra or minhag whenever they get a “feel good” about it. We b”h have our mesorah, our minhogim, our chumras. No need to tinker by adding or detracting.

    beautiful minhag

    There are many so called beautiful minhagim – that chabad does not follow. No one has a right to introduce new minhagim, unless of course the rabbi isn’t chabad..

    this is the tradition in the synagogues in england. It is not something Schochet has started, and not in chabad shuls, so don’t panic about him being not chabad.
    it does not mean it should be introduced in our shuls — as you say, we need to keep to our minhogim

    This is new

    very few shuls do it and even then only if they have babies. in his case, fastest growing shul in london, Those that do it, do it on yomtov – shavuos or something so it is clever that he does it on chanuka abd gets everyomne in
