As the Megilah tells us, Mordechai gathered the children before the miracle of Purim, so too Oholei Torah gathered all its elementary division together during the days preceding Purim for a grand Purim Hakhel rally.
Coordinated jointly by the principals, close to 1000 talmidim from pre-1A to 8th graded joined for a rally of Torah, T’filla and Tzedoka.
Beginning with a kapital thillem said by Mayer Avtzon, followed by a sichas from the Rebbe from Purim 1983. The actual sicha was learnt in the classes before had, adding to the depth and understanding of the talmidim, each grade on their level.
The 12 psukim were said by representatives from all divisions.
Music was provided by Yossi Cohen and his choir.
A special performance was shown by Illusionist – T.J. Tana, sponsored by the PTA, who celebrated an impromptu Bar Mitzvah when Rabbi Yehoshua Lustig found out he never had one in his youth. The surprise Bar Mitzvah was witnessed by the whole school, and left a deep impression on all.
