We had one kid last year and look how many kids are coming this year. So proud. Last year rabbi weinbaum asked us if we enjoyed the shabaton and we all did. He asked us to show our thanks by getting at least one more person to join. And now look at the list.

The best school on earth. Here we come. Sorry all other school but the medals belongs to us.

LEC Florida
March 24, 2016 5:16 pm

Thank you to Mrs Dalfin for bringing the chidon to Lubavitch Educational Center. Our children have spent hours on end learning. It would be safe to say that they both spent over a hundred hours of their spare time learning torah. Who would have imagined that you could get kids today to spend so much of their own free time learning torah and getting so involved in each and every mitzvah. We did not push our kids. They come home saying mummy we want to go to the chidon. It was really hard work, and at times I never thought… Read more »

Your dedication to beis rivka is byond words because of you over 700 kids are in tzivos hashem. You have brought so much to our school. A very thankful parent

Mushka Greene

Thank you Mushka Greene for the incredible way you are running and leading the Chidon this year. It’s outstanding!

March 24, 2016 3:01 pm

Every time I go to chidon613.com and see the words sponserd by הרוצה בעילום שמו I always wonder who that guy is. Can’t imagine what a massive zechus he has.

Mrs Willhelm
March 24, 2016 2:57 pm

Thanks for all you do for our girls

Proud father who is upset
March 24, 2016 2:56 pm

I have two children in the chidon. I am such a proud father. Just upset that I will not be able to go to the chidon. I do understand that there are rules of tznius, but can someone explain what is wrong with father’s watching Girls on stage answering questions?

Bnos menachem
March 24, 2016 2:50 pm

We are so proud of our Girls all the ones who made it. Even though some of you are not on that list.

Mushka green
March 24, 2016 2:49 pm

Thank you mushka green. You are the best support a base commander can dream of. Your charming personality, with your incredible organization skills, together with your unwavering commitment and dedication has made tzivos hashem grow in leaps and bounds. How you handle all of us so calmly, I don’t know. But some how you are always there for what ever we need, and always with a smile. We can’t thank you enough, but greatly appreciate all you do for us.

March 24, 2016 2:22 pm

Rabbi Shmuel Aryeh Hackner is the man in London. Each year he raises thousands of pounds to bring in the winners for the chidon. And London always goes home with a medal. Go rabbi Hackner.

Thank you to the sponsor
March 24, 2016 2:12 pm

The chidon always has an anonymous sponsor so we don’t know who you are. But who ever you are thank you. You can’t imagine how special this is for us.

Chidon alumni
March 24, 2016 2:06 pm

I couldn’t agree more
The chidon is the program in lubavitch
Encouragement to almost 2,000 children to use their spare time to Koch in limmud hatorah. The knowledge that these kids have is priceless.

My Shliach
March 24, 2016 1:52 pm

We can’t thank enough Rabbi Zushi rivkin from MyShliach the online class that you provide our children with are amazing. Your incredible communication that you have with the parents as unreal. My son has learned so much and grown to new heights with this program. He is not on the list as he didn’t make it, but still gained tremendously from the program.

Thank you myshliach ans rabbi moshe kotlarski for all you do for our children

Never heard of this program
March 24, 2016 1:26 pm

We live in south Africa and it’s the first time I have heared of this program. Can anyone buy the book and join? I would live my kids to be part of it.

Shout out to Mrs esther willhelm. She brought the chidon to beis rivka. We are very thankful to all you do for our school

Oholei Torah
March 24, 2016 1:08 pm

The reason why there are sooooooo many kids in the chidon this year is all because of one person. RABBI YEHOSHUA LUSTIG. An excellent example for every other principle. He realized what his children can gain from a program like this and personally motivated the chayolim in 5th through 7th grade to learn. He was successful in getting 112 boys to learn and boruch hashem 65 made it to the chidon. But what really makes him special is what he did when he announced the winners in his school. With the help of the PTA he brought the next yahadus… Read more »

Thank you to Nechoma Gordon who inspired us to learn for the chidon. We gained so much and so excited to come to the Rebbe. I can’t wait to get on that plane. Looking forward to seeing everyone.

Tzivos Hashem and Merkos 302
March 24, 2016 9:28 am

Years ago I wrote comments on col about how everyone only cares about the not yet frum children. Why dosent anyone care about our own children. It bothered me that chabad lubavitch boasted the amazing work they did for outreach but what about in reach. I watched as a generation of kids post gimmul Tammuz never had what to hold on to. Sadly we were loosing kids like a plague. But you guys have changed everything around. You truly invest millions of dollars into our own. The programs don’t stop they get better and better. Each day we get to… Read more »

Chidon alumni
March 24, 2016 9:19 am

I was in the chidon back in the day, and I still remember what I learned. When learning for the chidon, you drill the information into your head in a way that it never leaves you. It truly is an unbelievable program.

Hatzlocha Rabba
March 24, 2016 9:10 am

Wishing much hatzlocha to all those who made it. Sadly my child did not mske it. She did work hard, but I guess not hard enough. This program demands alot of comitment from the children. I don’t think my child realized how much work it would be. But I now that she does, she has allready started learning for next year.

March 24, 2016 8:43 am

Go Yitzchok!! We are so proud of you!!

March 24, 2016 8:32 am

May you guys keep going from strength to strength

Proud mother
March 24, 2016 8:31 am

So proud of my son who worked sooooooo hard and will be on stage by the chidon.
Does anyone know where and when the chidon will be and how can we get tickets?

Looking forward
March 24, 2016 8:29 am

How do we get tickets for the chidon event
My grandchildren are coming in from London and I want to be there to support them.

Wow 629 kids
March 24, 2016 8:28 am

629 kids
The chidon two years ago there was 45
That’s incredible growth

Thank you
March 24, 2016 8:26 am

As a parent I have never seen my child so self motivated to sit and learn torah. Not only learn her self but she got her Freinds involved and together they sat and learned discussed the inside outs of each mitzvah. No words can thank you enough for the amazing work you do for our children

Best program in lubavitch
March 24, 2016 8:23 am

I have no words to thank the people who make this program happen. The amount of limmud hatorah that this program inspires is byond words. My daughter has put in hundreds of hours this year, learning every spare moment she had. And gained so much knowledge, that she would never know.

I can’t imagine the costs involved producing the books and aranging this program. But one thing I can say is that whoever does pay for this has a massive zechus.

Merkos 302
March 24, 2016 8:17 am

Rabbi Kotlarsky
You are one amazing man
The yahadus books are amazing. My child has used every spare moment she had learning torah. She gained so much knowledge. Because the chidon tests were so difficult she had to learn the mitzvos inside out and back to front.
