In places like Windsor, Canada, Amersfoort, Holland, Gaithersburg, Maryland, Doylestown, Pennsylvania, and Kenosha, Wisconsin, girls are getting back into the swing of normal life. Just one week ago, the girls from various school across the globe were celebrating at the Chidon Shabbaton 5777.
But as things calm down for the girls and they return to their homes, Chidon Headquarters is anything but quiet. Last night, more than 500 boys arrived in Crown Heights for their Chidon Shabbaton 5777.
Says Chayolei Tzivos Hashem director, Rabbi Shimmy Weinbaum, “The amount that these students learned—the hours invested in following the Rebbe’s hora’a that every man, woman, and child learn Sefer Hamitzvos—is astounding. These chayolim earned the packed weekend of learning and fun that awaits them.”
Last week, energy in the room was electric as the girls took the stage for the Chidon game show. And now, with just a few days until the boys’ event, tickets are already sold out.
The boys’ Shabbaton had an attendance of over 300 chayolim last year. This year, the Crown Heights community will host more than 500 boys from across the globe. What’s on the agenda for these hard-working chayolim? You’ll just have to wait and find out.
Doors open at 9:30 a.m. Sunday for the Chidon game show and award ceremony at the School of the Deaf.
