Tirtza Ben David drives two hours a day to take her two young daughters, Moriyah, 4, and Chana, 2, to the Lubavitch Cheder Day School in St. Paul, Minn. It’s a small school, she says, where each child gets personalized attention and the chance to learn in ways that best suit their needs.

New Orleans Chabad Hosts Shabbos for 1100 Students

At a school where 27 percent of the student body is Jewish, Shabbat is no minor venue.

The 16-year-old from San Diego will be one of more than 1,500 other Jewish teens from countries around the world to share in a Havdalah ceremony and spend Saturday night in New York’s iconic neighborhood at Broadway and Seventh Avenue as part of the ninth annual CTeen International Shabbaton, to take place Feb. 24-26. And that’s after a weekend of spirited (and spiritual) celebrations, learning, touring, socializing and more.

New Shluchim to Argentina

Mar del Plata, located in Argentina’s Buenos Aires Province, is a bustling beach city found on the country’s east coast.

Dads Hold the Fort While Wives in New York

Growing up as the child of Chabad-Lubavitch emissaries to Skokie, Ill., Chabad.org writer Menachem Posner remembers the weekend in the winter when his mother would go to New York for the annual Kinus Hashluchos. For her, it was a time to catch up with her siblings and parents, trade tips on education and camp administration, and most importantly, to bask in the presence of the Rebbe. But for the kids, it meant one thing: eggs.
