I volunteered, happy I did, it’s satisfying to know hundreds of girls benefit each day from the bit of effort I put in. Besides it was awesome to put in the next letter I wrote to the Rebbe

A thank you to him for helping make those payrolls happen.

It took vision of the board to bring in a young guy and give him chance to grow.

he is going places.

I agree. Thank you to the board for making change. 2017-8 was a year that broke a record. Not once did the school not start on time or end early due to strikes.

Just saw your post.

Hi Chanie, Sorry I didn’t reply earlier, I was so busy till now I didn’t have time for anything, In brief, I just finish reading you article It’s SSSOOO nice, so positive, so beautiful, it makes u feel so hopeful, it makes u SSSOOO proud that the “Rebbes Mossad” is finally doing so well, that it becomes a source of Nachas, and a place that “ BH I’m so proud of our school” etc etc etc. I don’t have the right word to thank you so I’ll just say it in two words.

The information imparted in this article is exciting and inspiring.
Congratulations to the Hanhalla for making these great things happen. It’s all about professional leadership, supported by the Board.

It took a while, but it happened. Let’s hope that they keep up the great work.

Thank you for this wonderful article. For noticing the good, for pointing it out and for sharing it with others! Sometimes all it takes is for someone to point out what’s right in front of you! Kol hakavod to the board and chazak! Keep going forward!

There has finally been a shift in attitude which makes all the difference: the community has accepted responsibility for the upkeep of our schools as an investment in the future of Klal Yisrael instead of seeing it as a business model.

October 4, 2018 7:18 am

Beautiful, postive article! Well done, Chani!

Fantastic article!
October 3, 2018 8:30 pm

Although my girls are not currently attending Bais Rivkah, I am so glad that Chanie Vogel has written this beautiful article to bring it to the attention to everyone and anyone in the Lubavitch community. At the end of August when I asked my neighbor when her daughter in Bais Rivkah was starting school I was so pleased to hear that the teachers weren’t going on strike this year (as has happened the last few years!). I’m so happy that the new board has been tirelessly working to make Bais Rivkah the school we are all proud of! A big… Read more »

GO BRHS!! I’m so proud of where my school has gone!!!! Let’s give credit where credit is due: thank you to the board, for your unending support and planning and all the amazing stuff you do, and thank you to the Rebbe MH”M, the Nosi Doreinu, for watching over his school and making sure that it stays afloat in its holy mission to educate yiddishe maidelach! May these successes lead us to our ultimate goal with Moshiach NOW!

I can attest to the fact that when BR plans a program for us, they spare no expenses on making it the best and most beautiful program possible. From the elaborate and fun challah bake last month for Rebbetzin Chana’s yartzeit, to the stunning achdusdik simchas bais hashueva program, and as the author of this article mentioned, the beautiful licht bentchen cards that were distributed to each girl, easing the family bustle by the candles before Yom Tov, we can see the dedication of the board to the needs and aspirations of BR students of all ages. And of course,… Read more »

Thanks for letting us know all this good and exciting news.
Btw, it was a relatively small thing but the beautiful hadlokas haneiros card from the board for each talmida before R”H, with the personal card attached, really made us feel special and welcome to the Rebbe’s Moisad. We used it proudly!

Beautiful article highlighting all the positive changes.
I really appreciated the beautiful card with the brochos for licht bentchen.

after so many many years in BR i can finally say with a full heart that i am proud to be part of this…..words cannot describe the thankfullness i feel to this devoted dedicated board who took upon themselves to save this school…..and they are busy working people who tirelessly take the time to do this……and for sure did not sleep nights to meet the payrolls…..May Hashem reward them with His ultimate kindness,,,,,,they deserve it

Thank you
October 3, 2018 7:34 pm

Truly fantastic but let’s remember the old board tried hard and often had their hands tied and deserve the credit due them too for trying and graciously making room for new changes! Thank you old and new!!!
