At the recent end-of-year “Mother and Daughter Tea” for Chayolei Tzivos Hashem, a video describing some of the accomplishments of the new program was shown.
The program was created by Rabbi Moshe Kotlarsky of Merkos L’inyonei Chinuch and the staff of Tzivos Hashem and Anash.com, and coordinated by Rabbi Shimmy Weinbaum.
“The Rebbe’s vision of having a worldwide children’s effort to bring Moshiach is truly amazing,” says Rabbi Weinbaum. “It is humbling to see the monthly reports from the global database; the numbers are staggering. With the collective effort of thousands of children worldwide, over 320,000 kapitlach of Tehillim, for over 400,000 minutes were said this year on Shabbos Mevorchim. More than 27,000 lines of Tanya were learned by heart, and it keeps growing. This is something the children and their parents and educators can be extremely proud of, as I’m sure the Rebbe is.”
Parents have expressed great enthusiasm about the program.
“The Chayolei Tzivos Hashem program really sets the standard in our home for how the children should be behaving as Lubavitcher Chassidim,” says Mrs. F. M. Shusterman. “The children come home and we go through the missions and we say, ok, which ones can we do, as a family. They are so motivated, because of the Chinese auction and the medals… They hold them, gaze at them… Ma look, I’m a sergeant!”
A principal says the children gain so much from the Chayolei Tzivos Hashem program.
“Because it is personalized for each student… they are able to grow and feel so proud of themselves…,” says Mrs. Chanie Goldberg – Principal. “This program gives the opportunity to students who may not be doing so well academically to really shine and grow on her own level… she feels recognized and accomplished.”
