My children look forward to reading hachyol each week

I am not a child
Guest
I am not a child

I am not a child, but I will never miss a week. Hachyol is catching me up on so much of what I missed out on as a child. thanks rabbi kotlarsky for all that you do.

The best publication chabad has today.
Guest
The best publication chabad has today.

So focused, we’ll written and designed. Anyone who does not have hachyol at their shabbos table is missing out on rich chassidishe values saturated with yiras shomayim. Thank you my shliach. you are what we need most.

parshafier
Guest
parshafier

We love the parshafier most. so important for our children to hear about the sichos the rebbe said at the rallies. they are given over in such a creative manner. we all take part by the shabbos meal each acting out another part of the feature. The whole shabbos table comes alive each week.

I always wanted to know how they can afford to pay for so much that they give our kids. I guess the cat is out of the bag it’s reb moshe. Rabbi kotlarsky you are an amazing man.

Thank you
Guest
Thank you

Thank you rabbi kotlarsky from a very thankful parent for all that you do. As shluchim we all know how much you do for the family of shluchim, but there is nothing more meaningful to us that you care so much about our children’s well being. bringing children up on shlichus comes with many challenges and to have hachyol is nothing less the a life saver.

I feel very indebted to rabbi kotlarsky. I have read every one of the 100 issues and grown so much from them. I get them for my children and they love them. But as parents we need this as well. Thank You.

A real visionary
Guest
A real visionary

rabbi kotlarsky is a real visionary. He has done so much for the shluchim around the world but this shows what a real visionary he is. He understands that in order to have shluchim to send out you need to invest in the future shluchim.

hachayol is a great magazine, the kids love reading it every week. It is so creative and well done, and the kids really learn from it! wish it was around when i was a kid. thank you hachayol and whoever is behind it!

Oholei torah
Guest
Oholei torah

Is there a reason you deprive our children from this amazing magazine. Our children would gain so much from it. 700 children from pre1a till 7th grade could and should be instilled with the sichos of the rebbe about what it means to be a soldier in hashems army and….. Tzivos hashem is the tool that the rebbe gave us to bring up this generation of children. how can you not have this in your school. i still remember when i was a child in mem aleph. Oholei Torah had the most amazing tzivos hashem. we all had army hats… Read more »

Guest

hachyol is an amazing tool for the shabbos table. Our shabbos table used to be a place where we spent the meal chatting with a devar torah or two from the kids. now the meal became a chassidishe farbrengen.

yerachmiel is the man
Guest
yerachmiel is the man

rabbi Benjaminson is the main man who has kept tzivos hashem alive for 33 years. His partnership with rabbi kotlarsky has definitely changed the face of tzivos hashem but at the end of the day the man who the rebbe chose for tzivos hashem is yerachmiel. we salute you and stand behind ALL the incredible work you do.

My heart goes out to you and to all of us who are so painfully aware that so much more needs to be put into the children’s chinuch besides actual learning. I suggest that you write a separate op-ed, and ask parents to sign that they want tzivos Hashem to be in the school curriculum. Or, maybe you have another idea? You can e-mail me for support in this. [email protected]. Hatzlacha Rabba!

Moshiach

Tzivos Hashem was made to finish off golus and bring Moshiach. Much Hatzlocha in all that you do.

When I contacted Oholei Torah they never laughed at me. They simply said “we have no one to run it in our school”. i have done my research, and unless you have someone dedicated to running Tzivos Hashem it dose not work. i dont have kids in the school anymore, but perhaps it would be worth suggesting that they should just give out the magazine, watch the rallies and get the amazing siddur that each child gets a gift, I am sure most parents would want to get it for their children.

Rallies
Guest
Rallies

My kid is in Oholei Torah and he hates going to Tzivos Hashem rallies. he says “why should we sit and watch all the kids who have gone up in rank and win amazing prizes, and we don’t even get missions. Tzivos Hashem does amazing things but they need top find away of getting everyone involved. just Oholei Torah and Beis Rivka from pre 1a – 2nd grade who are not yet in Tzivos Hashem is over 1,000 children! can you imagine what the Rebbe would say about this!

TZIVOS HASHEM SHOULD BE FREE
Guest
TZIVOS HASHEM SHOULD BE FREE

when we grew up Tzivos Hashem did not cost money. Rallies did not cost Money, everything was for free and everyone participated. Today everything cost money and then you wonder why people are not part of it.

Thank you
Guest
Thank you

I am another very thankful parent, who reads Hachayol to my children every night before they go to sleep.
i remember as a child getting the black and white newsletters (amazing for that time) five or six times a year. it was so exciting to get them in the mail. To be able to get full color magazines each week is something amazing. our kids look forward each week to getting them! You truly deserve a big thank you!

Our Connection

My children do not learn in a chabad school, they go to the local day school and dont have a chassidisher Chniuch. The Myshliach program has been a life savor for us. My child looks forward all week to the one hour he gets to learn with his big chavrusa. they review Hachayol together, he reviews what Missions my son has done and encourages him to do more. Its very diffrent when it comes from a bochur then when it comes from a parent. I know Rabbi Markowitz was very behind getting this program off the ground back in the… Read more »

No words
Guest
No words

No words will ever be enough to describe what hachayol has done. just for example, we always took negel vasser from the bathroom, since they had in hachayol that “negel vasser is not to be taken from the bathroom” my kids go downstairs each night and get negel vasser from the kitchen. Now we are putting in a sink upstairs, so my kids don’t flood their house each night with their negel vasser ;). it really has had an amazing impact on our children thank you to all who make it possible.

Can we have a focus on more simple things
Guest
Can we have a focus on more simple things

Please don’t take this the wrong way, we really appreciate the hachayol, my kids read it cover to cover, over and over and over again. BUT because it is such a powerful tool as parents it would help if you could focus on basic things. Like going to sleep on time, eating healthy food. this is also part of being a chosid. if our children would sleep properly and eat healthy food they would be able to focus in class so much more then they do now. Am i the ONLY person who thinks this way?

Do our Kids NEED this?
Guest
Do our Kids NEED this?

Do our kids need a magazine each week?
whats wrong with the old Tzivos Hashem when we got newsletters 6 times a year. it was simple. you went to shul on Yom Kippur, you ate Matzos on Pesach you got points you went up in rank. Now things seem so much more complicated, every day the kids have missions, every week a magazine, a month a rally, every month a raffle, isn’t this too much?

What happened to KIDS magazine
Guest
What happened to KIDS magazine

what you do for the Lubavitcher Kids is very important. BUT what happened to the KIDS magazine for the not yet frum children we used to send it out to 2,000 families. REB MOSHE we need it back again! PLEASE PLEASE the children in the chabad house keep asking for it!

Simple & Stupid
Guest
Simple & Stupid

i like the way hachayol and tzivos Hashem has recently become very simple. i used to find out very complicated and i gave up on it. now the Hachayol works together with the mission sheets, each page points out what mission it is connected with and which day of the week it should be read. it so simple that even someone stupid like me has been able to figure it out.

Hachayol App
Guest
Hachayol App

when will Hachayol have an app. JEM has and App. why cant Tzivos Hashem have an app. it would so much better if i could enter my kids missions on my phone or just give them the ipad and let them do it each night. if this could be done i think so many more kids would be filling out their missions each night and that’s what you guys want – right!

@51
Guest
@51

of course the new hahayol is better in the old one it was missions that every lubavitch kid did anyway it was geared towards fry kids
of course you go to shul yom kippur
in the new program they have missions like going every shabbos not just yom kppur

@38
Guest
@38

perhaps the pta can make it a campaign to get someone hired to oversee CTH @ OT. I think one survey to parents will be all that’s necessary to show how much it is wanted. I’d be glad to translate the mission sheets to Yiddish if that’s the issue.

PTA OT

sounds like a really good idea does anyone know someone in the OT PTA that would undertake this. it would be the best thing they have ever done (and i know they do great work)!
Please help save our children!

So nice to see
Guest
So nice to see

It’s nice to see one of the top commented articles be about something so purely positive.
To the incredibly hardworking people behind Tzivos Hashem and HaChayol and to Rabbi Kotlarsky, thank you so much for turning dreams into a reality that our children can use as a tool for real growth through such a refreshingly positive and holy approach.
This is the preventive medicine to having kids feel the need to look elsewhere.
G-d bless you all.

on shlichus far away

You cannot imagine what it’s like to have current, up to date, Chassidishe magazine delivered to your door on time when you live 4000 miles away from New York and your kids rattle around the house searching for something new and good to read. Hachayol is their fuel – it’s become the center of conversation between the kids (never mind the arguments about whose turn it is to have the magazine) and the missions do wonders- they have upgraded the way we do Torah and mitzvos and shlichus and the way we live period.
Thank you Rabbi Kotlarsky and everyone else.

Is there a way to sign up my kids that are in OT

And maybe TH can have a general program where kids not just from CH can sign up without a school

shimmy weinbaum

If I remember correctly, Rabbi Shimmy Weinbaum has made this his life’s mission to raise the standard for anash and shluchim’s children. This has always been his dream and deciding to stay in CH and not go out on shlichus was the hardest decision he and his wife ever made. BH reading all these comments and hearing first hand from shluchim and anash how important this is for their families chinuch, will surely make him feel it was all worthwhile and is giving the Rebbe nachas. So Yasher Koach to Shimmy and may you go from strength to strength. Many… Read more »

What they don’t write about in this article is about the amazing teacher resources that comes with hachyol. As a teacher I find they have created a treasure of material that is so helpful in my class. Thanks to all involved. It must be made clear so that people don’t forget. 5 years ago i was struggling with the kids in my class to that they should have some kind of feelings towards the rebbe, a chassidishe yom tov or even a regular yom tov. struggling to get the children involved in davening. 5 years later I can honestly say… Read more »
