Every year with the end of summer, comes the excitement of the children returning to school, sometimes referred to as Cheder, and in this case specifically Tzeirei Hashluchim Cheder at the Ohel.
But in addition to the children returning to connect with their old friends and new acquaintances, welcomed by the warm smiles from their teachers, they were also thrilled to see the renovations of their beloved Cheder.
It happened through total hashsgocha protis.
There was a brief Cheder meeting in a home of one of the parents who was doing construction in his basement.
When Izhak of I & G 2005 construction heard what was happening at the Cheder at the Ohel, he was deeply touched, especially because of its close proximity to the Rebbe’s Ohel, and immediately made the following declaration:
“You know what? I’m in need for some additional mitzvot. How about when the children are away during the summer my assistants and I will renovate whatever is necessary to make the Cheder at the Ohel look like a great yeshiva should look.”
Little did he realize that what was needed were new floors, a new roof, upgraded plumbing and electricity and the beautification of the Shul.
True to his word, Izhak came through without charging a penny for anything, and now the 50 students of the Cheder at the Ohel have the great fortune of learning Torah in a very pleasant and congenial atmosphere.
This is in addition to the wonderful playground that was sponsored by Feivish and Tamar Pewzner last spring.
In these fiscally challenging times it is highly unusual to be able to complete such a total renovation, but, Boruch Hashem, and with the Rebbe’s brochas, a true surprise occurred this summer at the Cheder at the Ohel.
Parents, students and teachers are delighted that the talmidim are learning in the new setting. Parents who want to learn more about the Cheder should go to www.Chederth.com. To buy a raffle ticket towards the grand raffle go to http://www.chederth.com//981130/
