The Chaya Aydel Seminary in Hallandale Beach, Florida, has added to their curriculum the study of the renowned Hemshech Ayin Beis, the lengthy series of discourses from the Rebbe Rashab. This past Shavuos marked the 100th anniversary since this “Wondrous and Profound” series of Maamorim began in the town of Lubavitch in 5672 (1912).
Rabbi Yossy Lebovics, Principal of the Seminary since its inception in 2002, announced that “when it comes to Pnimiyus HaTorah, girls and women have the same obligation as boys and men to study these subjects which pertain to the love and fear of Hashem,” as was emphasized by the Rebbe and the Frierdiker Rebbe.
“No doubt, when Chassidim around the world have shown a tremendous interest, in light of the 100th anniversary, to study Ayin Beis – it goes without saying that Seminary girls should take a lead role in studying Ayin Beis, and in sharing the incredible insights they learn with friends, family and community members,” the third generation Educator-par-excellence remarked.
Rabbi Raphael Tennenhaus, dean of the Chaya Aydel Seminary and executive vice president of Chabad of South Broward, points out that three Shiurim of Ayin Beis will be given to the Florida Seminary students before the end of the current School Year. In the upcoming Seminary Year, Ayin Beis will be studied for forty five minutes each week, as an additional class in the curriculum of Chassidus.
According to Rabbi Tennenhaus, ”for the past ten years I have noticed how Seminary students who have studied Chassidus for years comprehend the deepest subjects of Chassidus, and in many ways their perception of G-dliness is far more refined and advanced than even the perception of many modern-day authors of Seforim, who regrettably, for whatever reason, have not been fortunate (as of yet) to study Chabad Chassidus.
Surely young women studying Ayin Beis will be another rung in Hafotzas HaMayonos, and this will both trickle in to the greater Jewish Community, as well as hasten the revelation of Moshiach.”
