Oholei Yosef Yitzchok Lubavitch in Crown Heights held a rally in honor of Chof Cheshvan, the birthday of the Rebbe Rashab, the founder of the Tomchei Temimim Yeshiva.
Rabbi Motel Schneiderman, the school’s founder and director, said the significance of this day that he celebrated with the students was that the Rashab wished “to educate those who’ll devote their life to bringing Moshiach and who will indeed bring Moshiach.”
The rally included the reciting of the 12 pesukim, a chassidic story, raffles with exciting prizes and snack bags for the children. Prizes for raffle winners featured toys, books and pictures of the Rashab.
“It’s through great team work of our dedicated teachers that make all the atmosphere!” said Mila Schneiderman, founder and co-director. “It’s enormous hard work that our teachers put into making it happen, from story-telling to organizing the peckalach, from keeping the spirit of the class to giving out tickets. It becomes a real chassidishe farbrengen.”
The rallies are held in school every chassidic holiday or auspicious day in the Jewish calendar and unites the students, bringing excitement and joy for yiddishkeit and chassidishkeit. Most importantly, the rallies add tremendous hiskashrus of the students to the Rebbe.
In line with the Rebbe’s vision of educating chassidim according to a pure and holy curriculum, the school is providing its students with an individualized and creative environment to best implement those values.
“Thank you to all the teachers and directors for giving our kids the pure chassidishe chinuch,” said Chany Elkin, parent of a student.
