On Sunday morning, Vov Teves, the students of Cheder Ohr Menachem were greeted with a surprise.
In honor of Hey Teves, Rabbi Sholom Ber Schapiro graciously sponsored and presented the talmidim with a special Sefer, “From Day to Day”, – An encyclopedia for the young scholar- which the Rebbe was personally involved in its preparation together with Rabbi Schapiro’s father-in-law Rabbi Nissan Mindel.
The Sefer was printed in English by Kehos for children, under the auspices of the Friediker Rebbe. In the recent years, Rabbi Mindel’s son-in-law, Rabbi Sholom Ber Schapiro translated the sefer to Hebrew and republished it.
The principal Rabbi Menachem Mendel Yusewitz started off the day by explaining to the talmidim the importance of this unique Sefer, with a tremendous amount of Yedios Kloliyos handpicked by our Rebbe.
The Melamdim received books as well, and will be incorporating parts in their Yedios Kloliyos.
Rabbi Zalman Goldstien thanked Rabbi Schapiro for his efforts. “As this Yom tov comes to a close, it was a most proper time for the talmidim to receive this sefer,” he said.
The Talmidim happily went to their classrooms starting this special day with renewed enthusiasm, inspired with the powerful impression from this auspicious day, while broadening their Mikdash Me’at library.
Later on in the day, the boys had the opportunity to use their Chanukah Gelt at our very own book fair at discounted prices. The boys began the new ‘Post Hey Teves week’ on a high note, with a strong commitment to learn in them and use them for years to come.
