Among the games, nosh, stories and parties, Shabbos afternoon is fun for tehillim! Chayolim around the world all know that; Tzivos Hashem boasted the mindblowing total of 125,014 Kapitach Tehillim said over this past Shabbos Mevorchim Teves.
“But we are not satisfied,” says Rabbi Shimmy Weinbaum, General of Chayolei Tzivos Hashem Brigade. “This month, we want our numbers to increase.” We all know the famous Hayom Yom of Chof Hey Shvat: “Saying the whole Tehillim on Shabbos Mevorchim is important for every person, their children, and their grandchildren.” What better goal than to get more chayolim involved?
The goal for this Shabbos is 130,000 and it’s a big one to aim for. Parents’ involvement plays a crucial in children’s motivation and Tzivos Hashem is hard at work to get that going. “Like any army, we want to battle on all fronts,” Mrs. Chaya Cadanar, director of the WWTC, explains. “So we’re asking every parent to do all they can to encourage their children to participate in this campaign.”
The new tutorial video, letter to all parents, parent shareable reports, and the mobile personalized programming where parents can update their children’s quotas are all directed toward that goal. “Seeing the magnitude of this incredible campaign made me excited about it” says parent Devorah Leah Wagshul of Chayolim in Bais Chaya Mushka and Cheder Menachem LA, “and now, my kids are excited about it too!”
As Shabbos Mevarchim Shvat now approaches, quotas waiting to be filled. School and grade winners are chosen each month based on the percentage of chayolim who have completed their quota. Where will your child’s school be on this month’s?
