In honor of Yud Shvat all students of Beth Rivkah Montreal were involved in special programs.
The Elementary students visited senior citizens homes throughout the city, to bring simcha and words of encouragement. The children received an enthusiastic welcome from the residents and grateful staff. The students returned greatly inspired and happy to have fulfilled the Rebbe’s wishes.
Before the children boarded the buses, they watched a lively video of the Rebbe by Kos Shel Brocho.
Grades 7 and 8 prepared an exciting original “Mivtzoim Carnival” for close to 300 children from pre-school through grade 2.
The older High School students had a beautiful thought-provoking “Yom Iyun” on the topic of Hiskashrus. The highlight was a panel of shluchim: Rabbi David Banon, Rabbi Pesach Sperlin and Rabbi Zalman Rader, who brilliantly answered questions about Hiskashrus and other topics.
The program also included a video of the Rebbe saying the first maamor Bosi Legani 60 years ago in 5711; an interactive game and a multimedia workshop. The program culminated with an uplifting farbrengen with nigunim and music, led by Mrs Tehila Posner.
All students in the entire school (pre-school, elementary and high school) wrote an individual pan, which was brought to the Ohel.
Attention is now focused on bringing nachas to the Rebbe and Rebbetzin by making proper hachonos for Chof Beis Shvat through various activities.
