How many of your children can tell you which Rebbe “Beis Nissan” is related to? How many of your students can tell you the names of each of our Rebbetzins? Wouldn’t it be nice if they could?
At last, a solution.
Chabad Generations is a new program that teaches our rich Chabad heritage in a unique and engaging way. Built around beautifully written, easy-to-learn songs, students of all ages can enjoy learning countless facts and details about the Rabbeim, and actually expect to remember them for years to come.
The brainchild of a dedicated Toldos Chabad teacher, this program was originally created as the framework for Beis Rivkah’s 8th grade Rabbeim class. Top-quality booklets, quizzes, games and slideshows make up this well-researched curriculum, topped-off with a professionally-recorded CD of songs about the Rabbeim, sung by the students themselves.
As any good teacher will tell you, song is undeniably one of the best tools for memorizing information. Taking that into account, nine songs were carefully crafted, using words simple enough for an average third grader, with content solid enough for high school. Written to the tune of a fast-paced niggun related to each Rebbe, every line includes another detail that completes the picture of our Chabad history.
The result? Lubavitcher girls confident in their knowledge of their Chabad Rebbeim, and looking forward to learning more each day.
But now, it’s not only for the classroom. The songs are fun to learn and sing, and a great resource for Shluchim’s children, for girls who don’t learn Chassidus in their school, and even for those who do but want to hone their knowledge.
After months of research and development, the CD is now available for purchase worldwide, complete with all lyrics. In honor of Yud Alef Nissan, it is now being offered at a special discounted rate for all orders received by Thursday, Yud Nissan, April 10, via www.ChabadGenerations.com/shop.
There’s something for everyone: parents and Shluchos can purchase the Audio CD which includes lyrics while teachers can avail themselves of a complete curriculum titled “Basic Teachers Packet” which includes the standard CD + music-only CD + 30 lyrics booklets for students + 1 Teacher’s Guide.
Women and girls are welcome to listen to the sample available on www.ChabadGenerations.com.
