Tuesday, the 26th of Sivan, Anash of Los Angeles, CA gathered at Cheder Menachem, the Chabad Elementary boy’s school for the 6th annual Chayolei Tzivos Hashem Grand Expo.
In celebration of 60 years of the Rebbe’s leadership, the Chayolim prepared 12 exhibits, covering the Rebbe’s revolution, starting from 5662 (the Rebbe’s birth) and covering every major milestone throughout the Rebbe’s timeline, right thru to 5770, where the Rebbe has brought us today – the threshold of Geulah.
Each one of the 12 units from Kitos Hey thru Ches were assigned a time period. They did research on that time period and then began brainstorming ways to bring their theme to life, in a fun, creative and interactive manner.
The result was the most successful and educational Expo to date; well over 300 people were in attendance. Everyone was encouraged to view and vote for each exhibit, both on its theme and creativity.
Most impressive of all was the enthusiasm of the chayolim in explaining their theme.
“This is my first year attending the Expo, and I’m totally blown away!” said a parent.
The exhibits were left overnight so that all of the Cheder’s talmidim and local members of the press would be able to view the exhibits the next day.
“The Chayolim worked for one solid month preparing for this event,” remarked Rabbi Leibel Cohen, coordinator of the program. “From doing research, collecting the information, coming up with different creative ideas on how to present the events, right down the most important detail of it all – presentation. The enthusiasm these children had as they eagerly explained to each and every parents all of what happened during that time-period was contagious!”
