You can now bring Tzivos Hashem to the kids in your community like never before. With the unparalleled success Chayolei Tzivos Hashem has had with Lubavitcher children over the past five years, a special Tzivos Hashem-CKids brigade for Hebrew schools has now become available.
The ten Shluchim who piloted the program are raving about its benefits. “The word is out that the Chabad Hebrew School is booming and exciting, thanks to the miles program,” says Rabbi Shemtov of Chabad of Stonybrook. “In one year, we went from 43 students to 78 students. Besides for that, there’s a tremendous amount of feedback from the parents about how their children are more excited and more involved. The kids are doing things at home: they’re making kiddush; they’re saying Shema and Modeh Ani.”
“The best thing about the mileage program is how versatile it is,” says Mrs. Chana Shayna Gansbourg from Toronto. “Kids in Hebrew school now join our Shabbos program, and kids who used to only come to shul now attend our yom tov parties, all because they are excited to earn more points and are proud to be a part of this.”
Now, Merkos Suite 302 has partnered with Tzivos Hashem to make this program more widely available. This project is part of CKids, an all-new brigade of Tzivos Hashem for Hebrew school children that will be brought to the shluchim by Merkos Suite 302. Registration will open at the kinus, with a limited number of slots available on a first-come first-serve basis.
“The Rebbe empowered Shluchim with the responsibility to reach every child,” said Rabbi Moshe Kotlarsky, “and we are proud to offer resources to help the Shluchim do that.”
Shluchim can implement this program across the board by offering varying amounts of points for things like coming to Hebrew school on time, wearing tzitzis, attending a Purim party, or anything else. Achievement cards can be customized to change the reward or its value, although the shliach’s account comes with pre-made cards that are ready to print.
Children receive a personalized credit card with a unique barcode. The children log into their accounts by scanning their cards onto a laptop with a scanner or by typing in the barcode at home. They add points to their accounts by scanning Achievement Cards that they’ve earned at your programs. The credit card system makes it easy for kids to keep track of points and earn prizes.
“This has been in the making for several years now, and we are proud to have the opportunity to offer a Tzivos Hashem system to all children,” says Rabbi Yerachmiel Benjaminson, executive director of Tzivos Hashem.
The Tzivos Hashem CKids Brigade is a joint project of Merkos Suite 302 and Tzivos Hashem. Stay tuned at the Kinus HaShluchos and Young Women’s Convention for more details.
