A year full of learning has just ended at Chabad of Flatbush Hebrew School.
Parents, students and teachers joined together to celebrate the children’s accomplishments and achievements.
The graduation ceremony began with the students proudly reciting the prayers all on their own!
Director Mrs. Mushky Bryski then addressed the crowd with an important message. She expressed to the children that the purpose of learning Torah is not only to know but also to learn how to live as Torah Jews, with love for one another. This school year would not be possible with out the generous support of Rabbi Mordechai Kanelsky from Bris Avrohom.
Shliach of Chabad of Flatbush, Rabbi Zalman Liberov was called to speak and in his unique way, he imparted a deep lesson to the children. He explained, based on the Rebbe’s words, that just as there are two teams competing in a basketball game to challenge one another, we have 2 “teams” inside of us – the Yetzer Hara and Yetzer Tov who are in a constant battle so that we are challenged to do what Hashem wants. He said to the children, “If there is no challenge…” and one young student shouted back: “there’s no game!”
Mrs. Devorah Leah Glanville, a parent of 2 students, emotionally shared her pride in her children, and gratitude to those involved in making this year a real success.
Afterwards the older class spoke about a Jewish hero that they had studied over the year and all students were each presented with an award specific to their achievements.
The event also featured an exciting slideshow, a delicious barbeque and a creative craft for the children to enjoy.
