    This is a superb idea. You have no clue how many nishmomois will be preserved on account of this.

    Wonderful idea

    Wonderful idea

    I have a suggestion. Seek out the children whose home lives are challenging (single moms, illness in the family, special needs sibling etc) & befriend them & mentor them. For boys with no father in the picture, this is critically important, that they are taken to Shul, encouraged, helped with homework etc. You bochurim can do much more than you think!

    what about the girls?

    good to see

    good to see that we are starting to worry about our own children. Let all the Rabonim take an example from our Bochrim and figure out some more positive programs for our children. And let every one else realize we all have to be Dugma Chayos or our children will have no chance.

    Why isn’t oholei Torah part of it????

    I see a yechi yarmulkah

    Will there be yechi chanted at the programs? Many parents don’t embrace that and if it’s done, it will diminish the professionalism of this program and will marginalize many children who would otherwise attend.

    Suggestion for achdus
    Guest
    Suggestion for achdus

    I saw a flyer about the program, it looks great.

    I have a recommendation that will increase achdus. I noticed that the groups are divided by classes so it seems like kids will just be meeting with the same people they see all week.

    It would be great to divide the groups by location so kids get a chance to meet kids their own age that don’t go to their school. ( so in stead of 4 groups for 4th grade divided by class do 4 groups for 4th grade in four areas where everyone goes to the closest one)

    Great idea. it was brought up in the past. It was actually done in regards t Cayolei Bais Dovid. In order for it to work you would need the support of the schools. It would also be difficult for kids to get used to their NEW group. Besides for corporation from the schools, and interest from the kids to join kids they may not know. There would need to be something greater, perhaps an incentive to gain interest from the kids untill they finaly feel their new group is their own. As of now, I believe children come bc’ of… Read more »

    interesting that people are only thinking about the benefits for the kids – just as much as this program benefits the kids it benefits those bochurim involved who are spending their shabbos doing something worthwhile and developing leadership skills!! I am sure this is very beneficial!
    Thank you to those who brought this to fruition and borchurim – keep up the great work!

    Stepping up to the plate. (To 28, 38, 43, 48 +)

    While Mesibos Shabbos was going on for over 70 years, and there are many hard working Lubavitchers (i.e. Rabbi Katzen, Yossi Brisky, Bais Rivkah and many more) making this happen throughout the years. And no doubt about it they deserve much credit. Though, we must recognize, there were way to many children that didn’t go to Mesibos Shabbos, weather because they didn’t have the importunity, or they just didn’t feel they were with their group. BH these Bochurim recognized the need to fill the gap. They are doing it in a organized and efficient way, so that EVERY Boy has… Read more »

    A BIG Yasher Koach to Yossi Blau!

    It come to show that even 1 single person can turn over the entire Crown Heights!

    When there is a will there is a way and this what the Rebbe meant when he said on 28 Nissan that even 1 single Akshan can accomplish bringing about the Geula to the entire world.

    Chazak V’Amatz, Yossi Blau and Mimenu Yilmedu V’Chen Yaasu Rabim, all over the world, thereby bringing about Moshiach Now!

    Stop posting to make issues everyone is entitled to their own opinion and just because a bochur wears a yechi yarmulka does not A.mkae him and the program any less prffesional in anyway and B.bochurim aren’t stupid and just because he says yechi does not mean he will say it with a group of kids whom which he doesnt know their parents opinion about. i know for i am a bochur (not in the photo) who wears a yechi yarmulka and runs a mesibas shabbos (not in conjunction with this and i don’t have all the kids “chant yechi” because… Read more »
