“I love having my own credit card,” eight year old Dina shyly admits. “It might sound silly, but I like the sound it makes when I scan it at the kiosk at school and then scan in all my achievement cards. It beeps each time and the numbers go higher and higher. Then I get to choose my prizes like I’m going shopping in a real official store.”
Five years ago, Rabbi Moshe Kotlarsky and Rabbi Yerachmiel Benjaminson joined forces and Chayolei Tzivos Hashem, a thoughtfully designed educational and motivational system geared specifically for Lubavitcher children, was born. Chayolei Tzivos Hashem has become a household word for its 4,832 members spanning 232 cities in 29 countries, testament to its unparalleled success in upgrading the quality and quantity of Chassidishkeit in the global Lubavitcher community.
Building on that success, Merkos L’Inyonei Chinuch and Tzivos Hashem have come together once again, this time with their eyes focused on the wider spectrum of hundreds of thousands of Jewish children around the world. Synergizing Chayolei Tzivos Hashem’s best along with Merkos’s acclaimed CKids curriculum has paved the way for Tzivos Hashem CKids, a cutting-edge comprehensive summer program promising unprecedented popularity and accomplishments in Gan Yisroel camps across the globe.
Twenty five camps will be fortunate to pilot the Tzivos Hashem CKids program this summer, a program that is set, b’ezras Hashem, to expand in the form of streamlined year-round programs in the near future.
“We look forward to this exciting new stage,” states Rabbi Yerachmiel Benjaminson of Tzivos Hashem. “With Tzivos Hashem CKids, our achdus will bring the Rebbe’s vision of Jewish children’s programming to life in a way that has been waiting to happen for the last thirty years.” Headquarters’ staff has been working tirelessly around the clock over the last few months to bring this dream to fruition and look forward to the program’s launch next week.
