Still amazed how these people decided to “skip” tahalucha and other things in order to make sure these precious children had this opportunity. Lubavitch lebt!

Loved it

It was a really special and touching experience
Thank you Tzivos Hashem for arranging

Beautiful Hakafos
October 29, 2016 11:59 pm

This year’s hakafos were by far the most organized and the program was run so professionally with none of the “kratzing” that it has been known for in the past. Thank you so much to all of the organizers and madrichim/madrichos who made it happen! On a “constructive criticism” note, unfortunately I met more than one mother who decided not to stay when told that her young 6 or 7 year old could not enter with her. Many families come from out of town and the children are uncomfortable going on their own and might benefit from being offered a… Read more »

I helped my daughter with her young children and we all had a wonderful time! My son was part of the ‘belting out the Atoh Horaisohs group’ with Rabbi Shaya Engel and Rabbi Reices and enjoyed the Hakofos immensely ! Yasher Koach! Next Year in the Bais Hamikdash hashlishi!

another thank you to an unnamed lady
October 29, 2016 9:39 pm

yes, it was very special but for me and my 3- year old the night ended a little different. as out of towners my daughter knows nothing about scary big cities but she did know that her flag was ripped. so when my husband wanted to walk out with her she dashed back in to get another flag. with such an amount of people my husband was at loss. b”h there were boys there from Shmira who stepped right in and very professionally started a search. in the end she was found by a mommy- whose name i forgot to… Read more »

Constructive criticism
October 28, 2016 1:33 pm

I start by saying thank you!

I respectfully ask: I notice as the years go on that more and more fathers with older children are coming. Fathers that I am certain would have gone with their son in Tahalucha.

The boys side is very small as it is (only 20℅ of downstairs 770 is given to them).

Don’t know how to properly address this but something to think about going forward.

Thanks again for all you so.

If I want to donate towards next year, who do I give the money to?

Rabbi Sholom Ber Baumgarten – everyone’s favorite uncle!

October 28, 2016 1:08 pm

The program was shortened this year. A little too fast but better than past years.

It’s just a shame that as a result we had to wait for the Rebbe’s Sefer Torah to come down.

What about starting the program a half hour later. That should solve alot, no?

The difference
October 28, 2016 1:05 pm

Comments can be a doubled-edge sword. It allows you to share your opinion, but nothing else. TH, for all the slack people have given them over the years, have quietly and single handedly revitalized a passion and focus for the chinuch of our children. Make no mistake: all of the programs and educational establishments have come as a result of TH’s efforts when no one else acted upon ‘all of the comments’ made in shul and on the street. Actions speak louder than words. Who was there for our kids in the years after Gimmel Tammuz with Motzei Shabbos programs… Read more »

I apologize
October 28, 2016 12:50 pm

I want to publicly apologize; I got caught up in all the venting and also contributed to the negative comments. After reading this article and realizing the amount of people, thought, planning and effort that went in I started looking at things differently. It’s truly hard – almost impossible – to run a contained, controlled program with the current resources. What TH have done by including everyone in a dignified manner and yet trying their best to make it work, is truly special. It’s not just that they are doing something when no one else is… They are doing it… Read more »

October 28, 2016 12:10 pm

I’ve never been. I’m always on Tahalucha – and this is precisely why I love this so much! To be able to go on the Rebbe’s Tahalucha knowing that my wife and children are being taken care of in shul brings such menuchas hanefesh and peace of mind. Each year when I return from Tahalucha I hear the feedback of how tremendous these hakofos in the Rebbe’s Dalles Amos were. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Shimmy, you can't hide
October 28, 2016 12:09 pm

One name indeed is missing!

However, reading thru the article it makes sense… He wrote it!

You can hear the energy, passion, care and appreciation throughout the write up. This guy is genuine and gives up his life for the Rebbe, to do what he wants and give us the tools to bring up our children the way the Rebbe wants.

Thank your Rabbi Shimmy Weinbaum!

Rabbi Baumgarten
October 28, 2016 12:08 pm

Rabbi Baumgarten, you are incredible person. You have been devoted to our community for over 35 years. No words can thank you enough.

October 28, 2016 11:33 am

This year was definitely the most organised. The lines moved quickly to kiss the sefer torah. BH we had a seat and my kids were comfortable and could see. There were staff available to help hold my baby for a minute. bh we really enjoyed
thank you

Most beautiful article yet on COL!!
Beautiful to see people thanked by name. This article brings only positive feelings.

Thank you!
October 28, 2016 11:10 am

This is the fourth time my family has come to these hakafos, from out of town! Each time is a tremendous improvement from the previous year! Big thank you to the Weinbaum family for putting all that effort and after being all spent, they still keep their ears open for constructive criticism to make the next yr even better! Big Yasher Koach!

it was mostly children and parents, not singles
October 28, 2016 11:02 am

I must say that I did not notice many singles who snuck in this year. BH the amount of children are really growing and 770 just needs to expand

Well said
October 28, 2016 10:58 am

How can we accommodate boys who need their mother there as there is no father at home lo alienu,and can’t be left alone.no mother in that situation shd be told off, that she doesn’t have a place. Thank you for amazing job!!!!!

Really amazing
October 28, 2016 10:43 am

I was there! The energy of the kids, and all those involved was uncanning! For all those involved and not involved thank you for all you’ve done to make this possible for my kids! My son still has his flag and won’t put it down! Thank you thank you!!

what about the Hecht brothers
no mention of them ?

If I'm not mistaken...
October 28, 2016 10:12 am

This was the brainchild of rabbi Y. Hecht…

He started this and put it into motion

Well Done
October 28, 2016 9:59 am

I have been coming for the past 7 years, this year was by far the best. most organized and most enjoyable!
