Despite rainy weather, the hall at Oholei Torah was packed wall to wall on Tuesday evening. Every chair was filled and many were standing, as parents joined an informational event about Tzivos Hashem programming for children.
Parents sat glued to the screen as they watched as Rabbi Shimmy Weinbaum, general of the Chayolei Tzivos Hashem brigade, gave a fascinating presentation. It portrayed the Rebbe’s vision of Tzivos Hashem and demonstrated how the medal and rank system was specifically designed to bring that to life.
As Mrs. E.L. Zarchi ecstatically responded, “these children are so lucky and I feel so lucky, as a teacher, to be able to instill all of this into them… You offer so much in such a tochendike way and it’s so unbelievable how the whole thing is through kedusha!”
Rabbi Mendel Levin, base commander from Oholei Torah, informatively presented all the details and workings of the mission sheets. Together with that he gave step by step presentation of the parent’s mobile site, helping them realize what an awesome tool they have.
Rabbi Yossi Bryski shared how he, as a parent, takes advantage of the unbelievable Tzivos Hashem resources. He uses the hachayal at his Shabbos table and the Yom Tov one on Yomi Dipagra. He learns from the Yahadus resources for the Chidon and gets involved in the rallies. He uses the mobile site to mark missions with his children each night. All in all, he celebrates his children’s’ progress.
Choni Milecki, the MC, brought to life the most crucial element: that Tzivos Hashem is not just any program, it’s the most powerful tool we have today, and this is what’s going to bring Moshiach!
Parents express tremendous gratitude to all those involved:
